Macro Mania lets you manually enter or records your keystrokes, mouse movements, and mouse actions to eliminate having to perform repetitive keystrokes and mouse actions. You can let it launch programs or switch to currently running programs then transfer information between programs or it can wait for one program to finish before starting another one. You can also schedule it run macros unattended. Built in features also allows for macros to be interactive.

It has great online help features but it can be difficult to set up for novice users. It is fully configurable allowing you to control many aspects. It comes with examples to help you get start. It runs well using low system resources. It also has the ability to use passwords. However it will not minimize to the system tray but it will minimize to the taskbar. It also only allows for Alt + key and does not allow for Ctrl + key, Shift + key or any combinations of those.

This shareware program allows a 30 day evaluation period. If you register it you will get minor upgrades free and major upgrades for 50%. All in all this is the best macro program I have seen so far.
