best free windows server program to notify webmaster when a one of the sites is down

Hi,

Can somebody tell me what's the best free website monitoring application I can install on our windows server ?  This application should  be constantly running on the background and check if each website on the host is up and running. When one is not working for a certain time (like 5 minutes), it will send out an email to the host master.

Thanks,
Ross

Hi and thanks for the reply.

These sites require you to include them in your websites. I was looking for more like an application type of solution.

Do you know by any chance ?

Thanks,
Ross

Don't quite understand by what you mean by "These sites require you to include them in your websites. I was looking for more like an application type of solution. "
Do you mean a piece of code needs to be included in the site to point back to the service?
 
Scoll down a little past halfway for application based tools
