Looking for a good to-do list application (Windows XP)

Looking for a good to-do list application (Windows XP).
I used to use Microsoft Outlook with some vb behind it, and especially liked the ability to send Action Items between coworkers. However I switched to Mozilla Thunderbird for personal use and haven't seen any plugins for this. Integrated Time Tracking and remote access would be a plus. Open Source and or freeware is nice but not essential. Any recommendations that meet some subset of this criteria? Or should I get to coding...

Recommend a freeware program to check the internal temperatures of my laptop

My laptop has taken to switching itself off at random intervals, but only at my parents or in-laws houses. The general consensus is that these houses are hotter than my own and it may be just enough to upset my system.

Can anyone recommend a good freeware (pref OpenSource) program to check up on the internal temperatures of the system? I'm running WinXP.
