Windows Alarm Clock?

So I've been looking for an alarm clock that will play pandora when it goes off. I found the pre-installed alarm clock but I can't figure out how to get it to do more than beep. Any body know one I can install that wil actually work?

Thanks John but I don't have any sort of mobile device I can use that on. Do you know of one that I can use on my computer?

I'm only aware of this Pandora feature existing for mobile devices.

It doesn't necessarily need to be through Pandora. I found the "built-in" windows alarm clock. Is there a way that I can make it launch a program such as windows media center or media go?

I actually found this one on cnet:Perfect Free Alarm Clock - Free download and software reviews - CNET Download.com It works great . All I had to do was create a shortcut to Pandora.com and tell the program to run it a certain time/day. The only problem I had with it was that I didn't pay a whole lo of attention to the installer and ended up with a bunch of spam programs. Other than that the program works fine and does what I needed it to.

Now that you have installed Malware with your Alarm Clock, you'll need to go to programs and features and remove whatever else installed with it on this date.

Afterwards, be sure to scan for Spyware and Malware.

Thanks John for that really helpful information . I really appreciate it . Yes, this program did install some stupid,useless spam programs, but that wasn't a really big deal. And yes, after installing any program I run a system scan just because I never know if I did something wrong. Now, with all that aside, your post was again, o-so-helpful . I again, o-so-much appreciate it. Thanks . This program works great. All I had to do was create a short-cut to Pandora and tell the program to run it when I want it to. Thanks again, John .

I would like to find a good free download for an alarm clock, because the one that I used in the past (World Time by Pawprint) sets off the spyware/malware alarms on several of my security programs. Would anyone know of such a program, that they are confident that is is spyware/malware free?
