What have you already tried for yourself before you come here expecting other people to do your homework for you?

I vote 5 for the idea (I was thinking to do it for myself -- never remember birthdays).

It's not easy to answer that: you need to be running software at the time the reminder is due, or have some interaction with the task scheduler to cause a reminder to happen.
 
Without knowing what you are trying to do (in the wider sense) and what you have done so far, I'm afraid we can't really be a lot of help!

You can have it even without programming (perhaps just writing simple batch files). Simply use ready-to-use applications bundled with Windows and using Scheduler Service: AT.EXE or SchTasks.EXE.
 
See:
 
ATT.EXE:

SchTasks.EXE:

Follow these steps:
1) From Windows Start Menu find Administrative Tools and Start Task Scheduler.
2) In the Action Pane select "Create Task". A five-tabbed dialog will open. Give the new task a Name and if inclined provide a Description. Security options are also available; tick if necessary.
3) Tab Triggers and click on the New button to make an assignment. The trigger will begin when you say it will by selecting the appropriate options in the dialog that pops up. OK/Cancel to accept/start-again.
4) Tab Actions. Here you have the option of starting another program or not when the alarm goes off. Ok/cancel, etc.
5) Tab Conditions. Further directions to filter the choice under actionable contingencies. Can wake to snooze if so ordained.
6) Tab Settings. Here you can stop any transmission of notification as previously proscribed in the previous panels.
7) OK. Closes the setup dialog and in the center window of the console successful task schedule has taken place if the name of the new creation appears in the list. It has a Status and TS shows when in the column one click to the right. If the new name doesn't appear then creation has not taken place. Start at step 1) and try again.
Now wait for the event to happen ...
