I am looking for a simple free program that reminds me to take a break and stretch after 45 minutes. Through Google I found lots of webpages with lists of programs, but no good rating system. Is anyone of you using a particular program and can recommend it?
P.S. I also posted this in the technology forum but I guess it is also a health issue - neck pain and all...

You can do it quite easily with task scheduler, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/178706
Just have a play, if you have any problems just ask
Edit, that link was about IE didn't read it properly. Don't have enough time to do a full tutorial so heres the best I can do, See this screenshot. If you don't how to access the task scheduler program search "task scheduler" in the start menu if you have w7 or vista. For XP see, http://support.microsoft.com/kb/308569Last edited by willdev; 03-02-2010 at 21:25.
