I used to use the program Color Detector.

Simply run the program, point the mouse cursor anywhere on the screen, and the color detector window will display the RGB values, HTML hex code, and the color name of the color of the pixel pointed to by the mouse cursor.

However now the page is down

Error 404: Page not found

I would like to download this program, or a similar program.

Use the direct link: http://www.cosmin.com/colordetector/colordetector.exe

Their redirect script is broken.

I use a little tool called Pixie for Windows. Pixie does what you are looking for:

Run it, simply point to a color and it will tell you the hex, RGB, HTML, CMYK and HSV values of that color. You can then use these values to reproduce the selected color in your favorite programs. [...]
