If this has been asked before I apologize (I did not see it in the "related questions").

What are some good free (yet spyware and adware free) multi-monitor tools? My trial of Ultramon just ran out and (sadly) my boss will not spring for a license.

I want features like multiple task bars and Maximized window dragging (and/or other cool features I don't know about).

I know that there is at least one out there that is free and allows moving windows easily between monitors. (Cause I had it before, but I can't remember its name.)

I want to install it again or something similar/better.

@ChrisF - while mulit monitor, I am not so much interested in displaying wallpaper across both monitors. – Vaccano Jun 18 '10 at 15:37
I know - but the answers provide links to various multi-monitor tools which may do what you want. – ChrisF Jun 18 '10 at 15:47
You can still drag maximized windows between desktops (at least, I can with Nvidia's drivers). It doesn't de-maximize it when you click and drag initially, but once it gets to the screen it'll maximize. – Nitrodist Jun 18 '10 at 16:01

I'm using WinSplit Revolution. Works fine. It supports moving windows between monitors via keyboard shortcut.

For switching between monitors - WndHop. Simple shortcut moves window to another monitor. As for multiple taskbars and other things - I used them before, but after switching to Windows 7 I found that Win7 has enough of it built-in that I don't need anything else (shortcuts like WIN-arrows, ability to drag fullscreen window to another monitor and such).
