McBar gives Windows users the usability of Apple Macintosh’s window menu. It is created not to just mimic the Mac’s features, but to increase the whole usability of Windows system.

Main Features

* Monitoring of active window and displaying its caption
* Capturing the active window’s main menu and displaying it on the bar
* Capturing the active window’s system menu and attaching it to windows caption on the bar
* Simple skinning (see Note section of this readme)
* Transparency (I don’t think someone will need this, but …)
* Option to show or hide Windows’ menu accelerator char (displayed as underscored char) for the top level of captured main menu
* Option to draw separators in MacOSX style (just blank line) instead of Windows standard.
* Context menu to close McBar (oh, God, finally!)
* Optional task switching in System Menu
* Optional window controllers in System Menu
* Compatibility with Y’z Shadow
* McMenu
* Option to read app caption from ProductName parameter of version resource of app’s exe (makes app names shorter, in most cases)
* Skin option to draw “shadows” under the active app caption.
* Highly experimental and buggy option to hide original window menus (you asked, guys)

Comment by Stitch on 2006-12-28 22:07:21

There is a good chance there is no trojan inside. It is often just anti virus software messing up because the application code is similar to a viruses.

Trojan.PWS.Wexd still in here…. I won’t knowingly install something that comes up with a virus in it. Please fix it. It seems pretty sweet.

“mcbrhook” trojan i got

Comment by anger2headshot on 2007-04-23 17:11:37

RIMMER posted this on Aqua-Soft:
“There was also post from svnk about the same problem.
Yes, most antiviruses treat mcbrhook.dll as a trojan. But it is NOT a trojan. For those who doesn’t believe me still, I can provide a source code - compile it by yourself, you’ll get the same thing.
Th? main reason why AVs treat hook as a virus may be similarity of my hook to recent trojans, which hook the creation of new windows, find their executable module path and do something to window (in some cases the same hooks CLOSE the AV windows or the TaskMan).”

Comment by Jordan on 2007-06-09 04:19:23

AVG spotted a trojan. I dout that there really is one though.


Comment by Josh on 2007-07-31 23:48:26

AVG, McAfee, Norton, Nod32 and CA all said it had a trojan. Why would they all lie??

Comment by COlin on 2007-08-03 03:32:08

Because AV software all have a little bit of common code. Why don’t you try out the software and see if it really hurts your computer? I’m about to try it now.

Comment by AbstauBaer on 2007-08-29 22:52:43
