The PC Timer

The PC Timer 4.0

The PC Timer is a simple countdown timer that also includes two alarms

The PC Timer is a simple timer that can inform you of the remaining time when you're in the middle of doing something or simply want to limit the time you or your kids spend on the computer. You can also set the program to notify you of the remaining time every 5, 15, 30 or 60 minutes. You will also be able to set two alarms at a specific time to remind you of particular events or carry out actions, such as play a sound, execute a program or display a custom message. The program also allows you to customize the time and time remaining colors, as well as background and font colors of the alarms.

What is more, the timer can be paused, reset and resumed whenever you want from the main window. It can also be moved all across the desktop and it can be minimized to the tray, from where you can see timer's remaining time, and the scheduled time for the alarms. Unfortunately, the user interface is a bit confusing and not very attractive, since it looks rather old and disorganized.

In short, The PC Timer is a simple but handy program that will allow to control the time you spend on the computer and also set alarms to remind you of specific events.
