Windows 7: Programs that keep windows from overlapping a certain spot.. ?

Programs that keep windows from overlapping a certain spot.. ?

Sorry about the bad title, I don't know what to call it.

I am looking for a program that will keep my open windows from overlapping for instance the far left of my desktop, kind of like the taskbar, you can't make windows overlap the taskbar when it's not on auto-hide.. I hope you understand :P

I saw a program like it a while ago, but I didn't download it as I didn't need it back then.
Just in case you were wondering, I am going to use it so it won't overlap my rocketdock. :3

I also hang out at donation coder, but I host my own software. Mouser's program is more complex than my stuff. I have some simple utilities to set the desktop work area. Take a look in the Free Great Programs thread:

Also I have a hotkey to toggle the Topmost attribute of the active window. You can download here Search for Topmost Toggle.
