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.

What's new in version 1.1

Version 1.1 has created a right-click action for canceling the program if you change your mind about killing the application.

Developer's Description

Terminate frozen programs easily.

With this very small utility you can kill your frozen programs with one click. For example when you double-click on a program's icon, the target-like cursor will show-up. Then on the next program you click it will be terminated. The idea was based on Xkill. from the UNIX world. Basically, this utility is a Windows clone of Xkill.
