Does anybody know any alternatives to stardocks "ObjectBar", because if I use that, it stuffs up my computer.

Samurize? It doesn't (by itself, anyway, there are other piece of software to do it) knock a bit off your screen, but you can certainly make always-on-top bars full of useful information, and interactive interactivity with it. Comes with a WYSIWYG editor, too, so it's easy to do things! Plenty of premade skins already exist on sites like DeviantArt, too.

Winstep's Work-Shelf (part of WinStep Xtreme, but can be purchased separately) is probably as close as it gets:

A powerful, multi-paged desktop replacement, program launcher and document organizer that can be used as an alternative or supplement to the normal Windows desktop. Also features handy modules such as a talking clock that can synchronize your system time with the atomic time servers on the Internet, an Email Checker, Weather monitor, CPU, RAM and Net Meters and more!

Well, if the top bar is all you want, try finderbar or winmac. Winmac is technically an older version of the Mac bar (the mac 9 bar) for Windows, and can be kinda buggy, though. Finderbar is always shareware, so you won't get bothered by objectdock sharewares` TRY NOW or BUY NOW pop-ups, but it doesn't work AS WELL on some computers. If it does work though, you should have a nice, complete OSX bar at the top of the screen.

If you are looking for a program that technically makes your PC a Mac without actually being one, try flyakite OSX. It comes with a theme that makes your startup, logon and desktop look like mac OSX Tiger (not quite sure, think its Tiger) it even says OSX! It also comes with a dock at the bottom, and bar at the top similar to finderbar, but better. Free, works with all versions of Windows, excluding 64 bits (they're working on that).
