Default The best free key macro download??

Can anyone advise me on the best (smallest, neatest, simplest) key macro utility I can download for free or very little cost?

I want to do simple things like assign my email address so that I can input it quickly in any application and the same with paragraphs of text.

I've looked at a lot but they all seem to be overcomplex, take too many system resources or are too intrusive.

Any ideas?

The free Key Macro that I know is AutoHotkey its a free, open-source utility for Windows.

* Automate almost anything by sending keystrokes and mouse clicks. You can write a mouse or keyboard macro by hand or use the macro recorder.
* Create hotkeys for keyboard, joystick, and mouse. Virtually any key, button, or combination can become a hotkey.
* Expand abbreviations as you type them. For example, typing "btw" can automatically produce "by the way".
* Create custom data entry forms, user interfaces, and menu bars. See GUI for details.
* Remap keys and buttons on your keyboard, joystick, and mouse.
* Respond to signals from hand-held remote controls via the WinLIRC client script.
* Run existing AutoIt v2 scripts and enhance them with new capabilities.
* Convert any script into an EXE file that can be run on computers that don't have AutoHotkey installed.

And as for the paid one Shareware.
KeyText from MJMSoft is good
