Gradual (at night) Red Display Tint Program?

When I borrowed my friends Mac, his display gradually tinted redish as the time of day became later. This made the screen much easier to look at during night time, and was a very pleasant feature/program! I was wondering if there was a similar feature/program I could use for Windows 7. I wasn't sure what forum to post this in, thanks!

Edit: I think my friend had a Mac program similar to this:

Hi there CheeseJam

I have come across such software in the past which worked well, but unfortunately I can no longer remember the name of it. However, I have found a program called f.lux which is cross platform and is free which may do the trick for you.

Monitor Tint
The best way to describe it is it looks like I'm viewing my monitor through polarized sunglasses. There's a yellow/green tint. It happened (coincidence?) after I burned a music CD using Windows Media Center. Prior to that and for the past year it's worked perfectly. It's NOT a monitor issue. ...
