Windows 7: Freeware that improves the look of the Win7 Systray clock

Freeware that improves the look of the Win7 Systray clock

Hello,

I'm on Win7 Home Premium x64 SP1.

I would like to add a skin to the Systray clock or use any type of replacement that can improve the look of it. Preferrably it's something free and something that shows a seven-segment LCD clock that looks like this (but not a requirement):

I don't want a clock on the Desktop.

I have tried the following skin packages, but none of them can change the Win7 Systray clock on my PC, though they all claim they can:

1. "Free Desktop Clock" by Drive Software

2. TimeLeft by NesterSoft

3. Sarbyx TrayClock by SarbyxLabs

4. "Vista Clock" by Respect Soft

Any other?

Hi, Jerry,

Nice to meet you again!

Currently I'm using TClock 2010. But it doesn't add a skin to Systray clock. So I'm trying to find a skin.

TBVNZ,

Actually I have tried TClock Light, too. I ran it as admin and in WinXP SP3 compatibility mode. But it doesn't work on my Win7 Home Premium x64 PC.

I've heard that some Win7 Systray clock replacemet programs, like "Free Desktop Clock", can work on Win7 Ultimate, but not on Win7 Home Premium. Maybe that's why you can run TClock Light, but I can't.
