G'day,

The circular icon arrangement? It looks similar to the Window+ALT key function, but I suspect its a 3rd party "docking tool" - its not in-built into Windows.

Perhaps somone will recognise it and tell us what it is.

Regards,
Golden

Looks like a mock up to me, probably done in Photoshop. So it Doesn't exist in Window Seven!!

P.S Where did you find the Image?

Its 3rd party or a mock-up for sure - if it was in Windows 7 Brink would have written a tutorial on it long ago.

Thanks Golden. Just noticed that it was a download after posting the link. I downloaded and scanned the program, but I'm afraid to run it for fear of harming my comp.

Good idea - better safe than sorry. Its definately 3rd party...........the question is, can you trust it?

What did you scan it with?

If you really want to use it, do yourself a favour and scan it with these on-line scanners:

1. ESET
Free ESET Online Antivirus Scanner

2. Virus Total
VirusTotal - Free Online Virus, Malware and URL Scanner

3. Threat Expert
ThreatExpert - Automated Threat Analysis

4. Virus Scan
http://virscan.org/

Some of these have a limit to the size of file you can upload.

Let us know what you find, or if you need more help.

Regards,
Golden

EDIT : I scanned the web host with NIS2011 and it reports as safe, but that doesn't neccessarily apply to the downloads hosted on it.

Thanks for all the advice. I deleted it after clicking on the company/developer name. It's linked to a middle eastern webpage where everything is written in arabic.
