    Hello
    I am looking for an application, that will show a small window with my reminder on my desktop (Win7), every time the computer is started, and can be deleted, either completely, or to reappear again until permanently deleted...
    I tried two apps and none of them does both...

    Thank you

    Make a file called "remindme.bat" in "%appdata%\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup" with the following contents:
    Code:
    @echo off
    echo Text you want to be reminded of
    pause
    exit
    It'll pop up with "Text you want to be reminded of" when you log in. Press a key or click x in window to close message. Delete remindme.bat when you don't need it anymore.
    Not very elegant but it'll work.
