I've had this on my to do list for a while, but I decided to finish it up tonight. StreamPrivacy is a simple program that hides windows from screen capture programs by making them layered windows. Useful if you stream your desktop and don't want certain things appearing on stream. You can also toggle the visibility of SC2 if you don't want to show the login screen for example by pressing Ctrl+Alt+P.
WARNING: Using this program to hide certain other programs might cause excessive CPU usage depending on system factors. This generally applies to programs that use skinned or themed windows, such as Skype.
Requirements: .NET 4.0, Aero disabled.
Note that using this on programs with complex windows (Skype, browsers, etc) can cause reduced performance.
Save settings on exit.
Handle errors better to reduce risk of crashing when new programs are added.
Suggestion: have another option to have a toggle hotkey so that people who are logging into starcraft can hide the window with a touch of a button (or combination of buttons)
ei: Generic streamer says, "I was streaming some old patch replays, but I'd like to login to battle.net to ladder. I'd like to do this without stopping the stream or revealing my real-ID (or pulling a day9)... Oh wait, thanks to R1CH I can!" *presses ctrl+alt+home* "Thank you R1CH!"

Virtual Audio Cable, not sure if you we are allowed to link to torrent sites, but Im sure you can find it if you go to a certain website and search Virtual Audio Cable
Or you could not be a dick and actually pay the author for a useful piece of software.
I originally attempted to do that, what ever the author uses as a payment site did not accept either my debit or credit card. I attempted to contact the author, never got a reply, and was in desperate need of something to all me to stream audio and mic, so I turned to torrents. Assumptions will only get you so far.
