    periodically pop up alerts on my machine

    do you even need a GUI toolkit? It seems to me like a plain MessageBox [microsoft.com] API call is all you need.

    That is, unless you want the script to continue running while the message is shown. In that case, you could set up a simple window with The GUI Loft [darserman.com]. Oldie, but probably good enough.

    And I've never seen a service with a GUI, I'm not sure if it will behave nicely.
