Look and Feel of Windows-XP: Applications

 
Hi Budz… Me gettin straight to the point. This posts core is the Modification of the Look and Feel of XP. I confess that I cheated in this one and took help from the Digit Magazine, but heck, nobodyz perfect, right? These are the Customization variants of Microsoft Windows XP.
I’ve installed BumpTop, ZMatrix and Liquid Clock in my ststem….  Bumptop is a kind of show-off. ZMatrix too is of the same category. But Liquid Clock is fine. bbLean depends on how much patience you have. 360 Desktop looks tempting. Tweak UI is really good.
 
I’ll let you get on with it then.  Commentz Plz.

ClilckOff
clickoff2.gif (544×333)
ClickOff is a program, which does a daily and very annoying task for you: click buttons on useless notification and error-messages. It is very easy to use: If a message like "Are you sure you want to exit" shows up, you start the window-detection of clickoff and point on the button you want to be clicked if the message shows up again - "Yes" in this case. If an ad-popup shows up it can be directly added to the list via hotkey or tray menu. Parts of a window title can be replaced by wildcards so that one entry can close several windows with similar titles. You can also set the text of message as a condition whether a button should be clicked or not. ClickOff waits in the system-tray next to your clock until one of its target windows shows up and then clicks the desired button. A browser popup will just be closed. Before a button is clicked or a window is closed, ClickOff can wait for a certain time allowing the user to click a button before it is automatically clicked. 473 KB Download
