    I have a very unique computer problem that is driving me nuts. When in 2002 I bought my Toshiba laptop I choose the option of setting an alarm. I didn’t know if it came from Windows, Toshiba, or the loaded software (Lotus, Microsoft Works, etc.) but naively assumed that I could easily change or silence it.

    Problem is that I can find no trace of the program. Every night since 2002 the alarm beeps and is driving me nuts. I have searched for files containing "alarm", "time", "remind", "clock". I have looked at Lotus, Works, etc.

    I have observed the computer when the alarm is beeping. There is no new icon, the system tray is unchanged. Any ideas?

    Can you disconnect the beeper?
