Well at least the installation was painless..

That and the Atomic Time Setter was about the only good news I have to report. First of all it bills itself as Freeware, but once you download it you find out that you evidently have a Freeware program and a Shareware program bundled into one. What does this mean? Hell I don't know. But in the version I tried out it says that both are there and after you get it started you get at the bottom of the program a note that says that you havw 21 days left to register.

Here is my big problem with this program. Now maybe I'm wrong, but I expect a Shutdown Manager to shutdown running programs before shutting down Windows. This one doesn't do that. What it will do though is run a program for you then shutdown Windows. Well you got me there, that can be useful. But I expected the running programs shutdown.

The screensaver is nice..
