Windows 7: FREE Great Programs for Windows 7

Menu Uninstaller is a tool that makes it easier to get rid of programs you don't want hanging around your system any more. Instead of having to navigate through multiple layers of directory structure, with this app installed all you need to do is to right click on your application's icon. You will see an Uninstall option in the context menu that lets you uninstall the app from right there. It'll dig through the mess to find the right uninstaller stuff, confirm that it's removing the right application, and then get rid of it for you.
Menu Uninstaller is a free Windows application. It is compatible with systems running WinXP and later.

Updated to v. 2.9.0.0 Now has ini file option to set Windows7 Transparency background color. Use a 3rd party "pixel get color" utility such as Pixie I posted about earlier, to get the color hex code.

Here's a new screen shot. Notice there's no longer a blotchy area in the Radio Button Group:

Edit: Updated to 3.0.1.0 Biggest change is a Paste Button to write selected or clipboard text to a temp file, then send the file name as param to the selected program. Great for snapping up scripts batch files or program code from web pages.

You can see updated screen shots here:

Also keep in mind you can get the latest Chromium Win32 snapshot here:

Index of /f/chromium/snapshots/Win

If you use the Win32 Zip file instead of installer it's a lot easier to back off to your old build if you run into a bug. Just make a copy of your Chromium folder from UserId\AppData\Local folder. Otherwise a newer build may have a setting the old one doesn't. If you just copy back your folder with the old chrome.exe it may complain about a version clash.

Surprisingly I've found these builds to be very solid. Usually if there's a bug it's something like losing your favicons for bookmarks or some other minor issue.

Each build folder also has an xml change log. I look in there. If there's a lot of stuff I pick a different build to try.

Handy little program for resizing any window to an exact, predefined size.

The author mentions it may have issues on Windows 64-bit, however I have been using it to re-size my browser window for a couple of months with no problems at all.
