Anyone know of a good (preferably free) alarm/reminder utility for XP?

At work I have a group of employees that need to perform certain tasks every hour. The problem is that they often get distracted and fail to notice that it's time to perform the tasks (though they do stay near their PCs). So I'm looking for an XP utility that will pop up with a reminder message and preferably open up a specific web page as well. It also needs to be able to be set to repeat every hour. I found this one, but it is non-repeating: http://1337.gameworldonline.be/1337timer.html

Anyone know of anything?

You can setup daily task reminders in Outlook that reoccur. It would take a little setup but you could make one for each hour that reoccur's everyday indefinetly. Actually it wouldnt be that hard, 8 tasks that reoccur shouldnt take long to input.

Yeah, there're a million and one scheduler/reminders out there. The trick is that I'd like it to 1) Pop-up an alert, 2) Open to a specific browser page and 3) Repeat pretty much every hour of every day. The 1337timer I listed before does the first two, but no repeat option.
