Editors' Review

+

This tiny app quickly closes frozen programs, but clicking too fast or in the wrong spot could cause problems. ClickGone doesn't have a standard interface, as it simply turns your mouse pointer into a bull's-eye. Click anywhere on the frozen application's interface to quickly eliminate it from your screen and memory.

We found it is possible to click too fast and eliminate the wrong program. Also, clicking outside the frozen program's interface could close Windows. Those were rare problems with this stable utility.

Other than user error we found nothing wrong with this application. It performs as promised and with low overhead. We only wish it was a simple executable without need for installation. Any level user will be happy with this freeware's performance.

    "Does not work"

    March 18, 2012   |   By Sporkinator

    Version: ClickGone 1.1

    Pros

    Easy to uninstall

    Cons

    Doesn't work

    Summary

    I tried this out on a few apps that weren't even frozen and it didn't work. I had the target and I clicked on the window I wanted to kill and it did absolutely nothing, just kept the target cursor up. I clicked on the desktop and it killed explorer. How utterly useless.

    "Simple little icon/app to force a program to end."

    February 18, 2010   |   By fauna99

    Version: ClickGone 1.1

    Pros

    Very much like the force quit on Ubuntu Linux to end those programs that won't stop.

    Cons

    The warning that it close anything- including Windows itself makes it a little less useful than force quit.

    Summary

    Fast, easy and doesn't use much computer resource. So many times programs or sites get hung up on the computer- now they can be stopped.

    Updated on Sep 14, 2011

    Still works very well on XP- haven't had a chance ( or need) to use it on Windows 7 but we'll see. Programs that won't stop are gone with ClickGone.

    "Much easier exit from hung programs."

    January 26, 2010

    Version: ClickGone 1.1

    Pros

    The program makes getting out of a 'not responding' program easier and surer than Task Manager.

    Cons

    It is too easy to shut down explorer.exe.

    Summary

    This program has helped me manage my Windows apps more easily. It is easy to set up, easy to use, with only minor annoyances when I click on the desktop - it re-starts explorer.exe, only a momentary hiccup.
    I recommend it.
