If you're glued to your computer, you should make it as inspiring as you can.
That was our goal back in September 2006 when we first put together a collection of top desktop enhancement apps.

We've picked out the best free and free-to-try downloads to give you a brightly colored taskbar, animated wallpaper, and dynamic cursor options for your XP or Vista box. Check out the desktop eye candy in this round-up.
