Editors' Review

+

Need an extra reminder for tasks or events? Desktop Alarm Clock from UT Bay is a free Windows utility that instructs your PC to sound an alert at a user-specified time, just like, well, an alarm clock.

The lightweight app needs no installation. Just run it after download and you're ready to go. Setting the alarm couldn't be easier. Pick the alarm sound from any audio file already in your computer or leave a note to yourself regarding the alarm. The small interface can be located anywhere you want it on your screen. You may even opt to hide it, and it will sit unobtrusively on the system tray and reappear only when the alarm goes off.

Desktop Alarm Clock is a nifty little application that can be very useful for individuals who get too engrossed working on their PCs. It's free, easy to use, and could save you from making excuses about being late. The application installs and uninstalls cleanly.

"MALWARE beware"

March 14, 2014  |  By jeffcal007

 |  Version: Desktop Alarm Clock 2.16

Pros

stupid BS didn't even work when I trusted it to wake me up for a ski trip and I overslept an hour.

Cons

I thought I "DECLINED" all of thr malware on the install, but a step was well hidden -- obviously intentionally to mislead me -- and it changed my browser to CONDUIT. Too bad these services have to SCAM their way into your life, instead of being a legitimate product that I CHOOSE TO USE. Thanks CNET for allowing this crap on your site, I am using CNET less and less as they have become less relevant and overrun with ads.

"MALWARE!!! Do NOT download this garbage!!!"

August 06, 2013  |  By Pepper1009

 |  Version: Desktop Alarm Clock 2.16

Pros

NONE -- worthless piece of invasive junk!!!

Cons

-- Tried to sneak 2 'offers' into the download process that I had to catch and 'decline'.
-- Actually loaded other crap that I have spent 3 days cleaning up.
-- Reset home pages and default settings on Firefox and IE.

FOR SHAME CNET FOR HAVING THIS ON YOUR SITE!!!

Summary

This loaded a search 'engine' called Conduit, changed my HOME pages on Firefox and IE, and changed settings to show THAT homepage on new tabs. It loaded something else call 'Mixi DJ' that calls this Conduit site, and set THAT as the default search engine in Firefox and IE, which I had to undo and remove via 'Manage Add-Ins'. This is an invasive, malicious piece of garbage...do not under any circumstances download this to your computer!!!!
