Centre and Focus Outlook Reminder Windows

Description
This is a script that loops in the background, looking for new Outlook reminder windows that need to be brought to the front of the z-order. This is a workaround because Window Created Trigger rules don't work with Outlook, due to the fact that they re-use window handles from closed windows.
