MouseRobot is VERY interesting program. I have had a few important & time consuming tasks and now MouseRobot does them for me! Thank you AutomationBox!

This is what I have been looking for. It greatly helps automate multiple mouse-and-keyboard procedures I have to go through day in and day out. My life has improved greatly by such a wonderful program.
