EventGhost!

EventGhost is an advanced, easy to use and extensible automation tool for MS Windows. It can use different input devices like infrared or wireless remote controls to trigger macros, that on their part control a computer and its attached hardware. So it can be used to control a Media-PC with a normal consumer remote. But its possible uses go much beyond this.

Quick Macros can add your toolbars to any window, auto-close annoying popup windows, auto-complete or correct text as you type, remap keys, convert your macros to independent .EXE programs, run from a USB drive. More functions can be created with the QM programming language that supports user-defined types, classes, COM, DLL functions, embedded VBScript/C#/VB.NET/C scripts, and everything for programming even at Windows API level. »
