FooBar is a collections of utilities in a highly configurable and easy to use toolbar. You can set it where FooBar is an icon in your system tray instead of a toolbar and access all the utilities by right clicking on the icon. It has a Clock, Reminders, Time Tracker, Password Keeper, Favorites Folder, Favorite Documents, Favorite Programs, Free Memory, Stopwatch, Calendar, To-Do List, Sticky Notes, Contacts, Start Screensaver, Shutdown, and Restart.

This program is really easy to use for the novice user and since just about everything in it is configurable the power users will love it. I started using FooBar when it was released as a freeware version. I love having all those utilities so easily access. It saves me time and makes me more productive. The shareware version is crippled though meaning that you are limited to the number of items you can put it the lists. Other benefits of registering besides unlimited items is free maintenance upgrades and free email technical support.
