Hi folks

I’m useless at remembering things, birthdays, events, shopping list, etc, etc is there any kind of program I can download that has a pop up or something that reminds me on a daily basis?

Thanks for the quick reply, I'll have a look at that.

that I've been using for a few years is;
Desktop Calendar
click here

What's not obviosu from the screenshots is that for most of the time it's just the "title bar" that appeard on the desktop; the whole thing appears on amouseover, so it's not intrusive at all.

There is also Postit notes, which I also use, as you can set an audible alarm;

Good luck,

If you've got MS Works the Calendar function will pop up with reminders whenever you want.

Hi BT, No I don't have MS Works, I've got Open Office instead.

Its just that MS Works often comes with computers when you buy them.

Not sure if I have MS, when I purchased this and clicked on MS, it asked for a 25 subscripition digit key, which is why I downloaded OpenOffice.

How would I know if I have MS works?

Its listed under Microsoft Works in All Programs in the Start Menu on my PC. And in the Programs Folder on the C Drive.

I also got a MS Works CD with the PC.
