Hi,

Is there a plugin like in macintosh, where you click on "programs" and a mini box shows all of your programs? I would like to have this in my taskbar.

Try winpatrol
Make a system restore point first in case you do not like it..
It can be used as malware protection too.

It's not exactly like that but you can right click on the task bar and select toobars and then select links. This will add a "links" button in your notification area. Just drag your program icons there and you'll have instant access to them.

Personally. I prefer Windows built-in Quick Launch Toolbar. Takes less space and resources than any dock, is easy to modify. Quick Launch - Enable or Disable
