It may be imprecisely named, but this skillfully executed freeware can fix stuck LCD pixels on your monitor. UndeadPixel's very basic interface needs no help beyond the minimal dialog information offered. Glance at a few color bars with start and reset buttons and you're running this tool in seconds.

One click of a button and the program displays a series of colors that cover your screen. You can quickly identify where to find the stuck pixels. Step two isn't as easy to implement. You repair the pixels not by flashing the whole screen, but in small 5x5 pixel windows. Precisely placing the windows on your stuck pixels can be difficult. It's too bad the publisher didn't offer the option to set a whole screen color then place the flashing windows. It's easy to choose the number of stuck pixels you want to fix and how fast to flash the colors, and this program proves to be more precise than similar utilities.

The advantage of this utility is you can continue to use your monitor while it runs. The small flashing windows can even be easily set to a single pixel to improve usability. Not every stuck LCD pixel responds to this procedure, but this freeware utility is the easy way to eliminate many pixel problems. UndeadPixel is recommended for any level user.
