So what kind of interesting utility programs does everyone here use? Bonus points for ones that are real unique or haven't gotten as much exposure as they maybe deserve.

Here's one of my favorite utilities: <a href="http://home.rochester.rr.com/artcfox/GhostIt">GhostIt</a> - Makes windows translucent and always on top, but clicks go through to the window underneath. Very useful for keeping track of download progress but still have full use of your screen.

Another one: <a href="http://www.mediachance.com/free/multimon.htm">Multi-Monitor Taskbar</a> - It isn't perfect, but quite usable. Puts a taskbar on your secondary monitor that shows only the windows on that monitor and takes them off of the main taskbar. On my list of things to do is to make a program that is like this one, but with behavior much more like the regular taskbar.
