Editors' Review

If you know how to use a CD player, you will be a master at using GhostMouse, a tiny program that lets you record and play back a series of mouse movements, including right clicks and drag-and-drop actions. You may, however, ask yourself when or where you could put your recorded clicks to work.

Using GhostMouse's compact, three-button interface, you can record a script to replay a set of actions. Unlike other programs designed to record and replicate user actions, this one is limited to mouse-related tasks. More robust programs will handle typed text and other keyboard actions. Still, the program worked as promised and even had a few settings and other features. You could, for example, call the GhostMouse app from the command line or upon startup and run a saved script. Using one of the two available user options, you could then choose to close GhostMouse after playback (the other setting governs playback speed). One potentially useful feature is the ability to click Play during a recording session, thereby enabling you to create an endless loop of your mouse clicks. To exit the loop, users just have to deliver a Pause command (Ctrl+Alt.), then exit the application.

The original purpose of GhostMouse is a mystery. One downloader describes using it to create a continuous click stream to convince a Web server that a real user is viewing the site. GhostMouse may also fill an esoteric need of remote system administrators. In any case, it seems that an application that records both mouse clicks and keyboard strokes would be more likely to satisfy whatever automation needs you have. If, however, you see a need for what GhostMouse offers, you won't have to pay a thing to use it.

"great for AFK gaming! :D"

November 23, 2010  |  By JasonArencibia

 |  Version: Ghost Mouse 2

Pros

it's small and loads extremely fast.
it even runs on Windows vista but needs to be elevated to admin or it doesn't lose focus.

Cons

none, it does what it says!

Summary

This app has evolved nicely over the years, when i first started using GhostMouse it wouldn't record right clicks, and the site it was on didn't offer any instructions like the pause feature, I had to record the mouse over the stop button while waiting for what i was doing to complete.

I have used Ghostmouse for anything needing repetitive clicking, and that now a days is in mmorpg's for instance in one game you have to train at the school to advance your crafting, 100 points per 45 second session to get to 200k points. this is where ghostmouse comes in handy... 200k points overnight while sleeping!

I now use it in other games for overnight repetitive clicking.

"McAfee Detected the Generic.dx!ett (Trojan)"

February 17, 2010  |  By leebalthazar

 |  Version: Ghost Mouse 2

Pros

Sneaky software. Probably successfully infected thousands of computers by now.

Cons

McAfee detected the Generic.dx!ett (Trojan) during install.

Summary

Doesn't CNET scans these uploads? CNET used to be a trusted source until now.
