"Highjacks with confirmation dialogs"
Free, colorful, free!
Does not close on command, closing the dialogs makes it stay open, dialogs cannot be disabled. Windows does not shut down with this program open!
It overrides basic windows commands, and it is often necessary to go into the task manager, just to close the damn thing! Any method of closing, it brings up text windows, and ignores clicks to close and Alt+F4 to close. Closing the test window it bring up, makes it think you want it to stay open...
Whoever designed this, thank you for your effort... But this thing is nearly an annoying as itunes, with their "helper", their "attempts to install a half dozen unrelated apple programs, and hidden autoupdater that cannot be disabled from starting with the system.
