IT Problem

You have windows application screens or pop up screens that you automatically want closing or you already know the answer to. To save time you would like an application that closes programs or applications for you.

IT Solution

I was at a clients recently and they had an issue where a pop up would keep annoying them every 5 mins and they were sick of clicking it. Enter ClickOff. This application title checks screens or pop ups, if you decide you want that window to be automatically closed the this little application will do it for you.

To download Click off visit the developers site , its a free app no trails etc. Simple but brilliant.
