Hello Nathano2 Welcome to the Seven Forums!

Not if found at Softpedia! Download Finderbar Free You won't find any bug laced items there!

The addon for Windows is seen there as well as several other sites being a Mac item. The most you would see is a possible bad install of the addon itself maybe from a bad download.

Well it is a Mac/Apple little program. How good it works with Windows 7 is the big question.

Well they came out with a Windows version the same way you see ITunes or QT as well as other cross platform variations for other programs. How well it was written to start with is another matter entirely!

The Finderbar is a little program for seeing Mac OS X style drop down menus added to the 7 task bar. It probably works much like any other small freebie going on fast and easy to remove if you decide to later. It's a customization option more or less there.

How well it works is something to be found out. As for an alternate download page, Finderbar 1.5 download free - Adds Mac OS X Style drop-down menus

Generally you shouldn't be seeing any 404 error unless you have a problem with your browser like needing to clear out the cache and offline content or the server got timed out too fast on that particular day. I've seen that often enough where you wait for a bit and go back and all is fine.

Alright, I got it. Thanks a lot! Clearing out the history, and cache helped. Installed it and worked perfectly. Is there a way to make this run on start-up?

That's an option seen during the initial installation itself as you can see in the image attached. Once on you would look over any settings or configuration options to see that chacked off.

Here I ended up with everything but the Finder bar for some reason. A download manager, 7Zip, some unwanted IE toolbar option I unchecked, but no Finder bar option for the task bar.
