Program which makes games run in window?

Hi, I was wondering whether there is a program which forces a game to run in a window. I have my screen set to 1,024x768 on 16bit colour and I would like to set the window on something like 800x600 or even 640x480, like I used to do with games such as Unreal Tournament and Quake 3. Reason for this is because I usually have stuff downloading while I play a game or have MSN Messenger on and if I could play games in a window, I can also keep an eye on the other things running. So any ideas then? Is it possible to edit some file in the game's directory to make it run in a window? Regards.

If you right-click the icon that launches the game and choose Properties, you will see an option to run it in a Window. However, this option is often by-passed by code within the game.

I do not know of any utility that will force the game to run in a window. The best solution I can offer is to pause and Alt-Tab back to your desktop.
