[XP/Win32] Basic alarm clock sitting in icon tray?

Hello,

There are tons of freeware that act as alarm clocks, so it takes time to find the right time: I'm just looking for a basic utility that lets me click on the desired time, and it will just sit in the icon tray and pop up at the time.

I'd also like having it pop up X minutes before the time.

Ideally, no .Net, no VB runtime.

Can you recommend one such utility?

Thank you.

Yup, I tried Outlook, and didn't like it.

Thanks for the pointer to MultiTimer.

Thank John but it's not an alarm clock, it's a countdown.

I use Windows task scheduler:

"Control Panel->Scheduled tasks->Add scheduled task..."
