Hi everyone,


I hope I am posting on the right forum and I appreciate everyones help and time.


I have a simple, dumb problem...I needed to set an alarm, so I thought it would be neat if I can set the laptop to do this. I am using Windows 7 ...so I am not sure what I clicked in searching to set up an alarm, but now, every morning, If my computer is on and the lid open, Media Player pops up and plays the same song. I cant find where to shut this off, I cant even find where I scheduled it...


Can someone tell me where to look to turn this off?


Thanks and sorry for what may seem like a dumb question..



Sorry, found it, it was under Task Scheduler.


Please delete thread ;)
