    I wasnt sure how to word the title...hopefully I can provide more explanation here.
    Im using macros to automate some repetitive tasks...but during that time, I still need to use my computer for other tasks, but cant because the mouse is already used for the macros. I usually run my macros at night, but a lot of time I need it during the day as well...
    How can I run macros and STILL use my computer? I know I can get another cheap computer, but is there another way? A program that will let me?

    I use windows vista btw.

    You can use a virtual machine to run your macros and just minimise that allowing you to use your computer at the same time. Vmware is a good one see http://www.vmware.com/products/player/

    Not sure if Im reading this right but Ive been using imacros for a long time and once you have it running all you have to do is open up a new firefox browser ..then you can use your mouse all you want and let the other browser do the work! maybe your talking about something else though.

    Consider to use virtual desktops, they may be more convenient than virtual machine. However they both have their pros and cons.
    Free virtual desktop - VirtuaWin, not free CubeDesktop.
