Google lists tons of desktop and networked reminder apps, and I have a need for one.
Can anybody recommend a good, safe, stand-alone reminder pop-up software for Windows XP?

The characteristics that I'm interested in are:

- cheap (free is good, but not essential...)

- free of malware

- small, self-contained (not part of some suite or massive program)

- can be set to pop up reminders multiple times per day for a single activity

- the reminder window is very hard to ignore (ugly, flashing, bright, whatever...)

- the reminder is "always on top" until actively dismissed

I have some physio exercises that I'm supposed to do, to counteract the bad-posture effects of squinting at a screen all day. Outlook reminders are pretty much ignorable, especially since I keep sounds muted (all those "you have mail" beeps were driving me and the neighbors crazy) and lots of screen real-estate for it to hide.

Anybody got anything they can recommend?
