    That's always subject to the AV scanner you have and how sensitive it is. It's a legitimate program that's been around for a long, long time, and I linked to it's official page.
    Thanks for clearing this up then my AV which is McAfee must be sensitive but it is the only one it has ever given me a warning on

    This may be what you want, but it requires Outlook. Most people have Outlook, but I don't want to assume.

    Home | Outlook on the Desktop
    Very attractive. ( editing : in terms of functionality )
    Unfortunately only for MS Outlook 2003 or higher.

    Friends don't let friends use McAfee!! I'd argue that McAfee is malware itself.

    Just to check out the ootd, I installed the MS Office Enterprise 2007 on my 64-bit Win 10 Home laptop.
    I could not find out which bit-version is my MS Office Enterprise 2007.( I assume it is a 32-bit, but that is besides the point.)
    So, I installed both the 32 and the 64-bit ootd.
    However, I am unable to launch the ootd no matter which one I used.

    This worked for me provided by Bunny J:

    1. place a calendar shortcut to desktop by:
    - click start
    - click and drag calendar live tile to desktop
    - right click calendar shortcut icon in desktop then click copy to copy to clipboard
    2. prepare to open startup hidden files/folder:
    - open/click file explorer
    - click view, options
    - click view tab
    - select/enable "Show hidden files, folders and drives"
    - click OK
    3. paste calendar desktop shortcut to startup folder
    - open file explorer
    - go to " C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup"
    - right click then paste calendar from clipboard.
    4. restart windows and ENJOY calendar on startup.
    Now when I turn on my computer after antivirus etc loads the calendar appears so I can view it and then click it off.

    Update :
    After installing some updates for the newly installed MS Office Enterprise 2007, The ootd Calendar shows up on my desktop.
    Colour is too faint. So I changed a darker background just to show the calendar in this post.

    Do you have any customizable options for transparency?

    I was wondering about that too, but, no, I do not have any transparency option enabled at all.
    I never care for transparency.

    I meant within the Outlook on the Desktop software, to change the way it displays.
