I think there are number of them around. Google (w/o quotes) alt tab
Top of the list is one from WinXP power toys (free)
The one I'm familiar with ('cause I was involved in beta-testing) is
Alt-Tab-It from PCMag.
btw: PC Mag Utilities used to be free until a couple of years ago. Now
they are around $8 each or $15 for a year's subscription which allows
downloading of their entire back list and any new ones (approx 1-month)
during the coming year.

Google for ;-)

the same, so I settled on this free one to start with (link below).
But it seems good, is mall and very customizable. Once I got rid of
all the shadows and things it looked nice, so I'll probably stick with it.
