Here are a couple of commonly used (commercial) tools for GUI test automation:

IBM Rational Robot – http://www.ibm.com/ 
WinRunner – http://www.mercury.com/ 
QARun – http://www.compuware.com/

From the main pages, you can browse and find trial versions. I was at a Testing conference early last month (ASIAStar in Australia - perhaps I should point out that I am a Test Consultant for a Testing consultancy company) and was chatting to the IBM Rational Robot salesman. Apparently they have just released a trail version of Rational Robot which you can either download from the site above  or order it to be delivered on CD.

My boss was playing around with a trial version of QArun that he downloaded last night. I'm not 100% sure if there is a trial version of WinRunner, but it will be on the site above if its available.

Whilst there is a lot of value in learning the above tools from a career perspective, if you are learning with a particular project in mind, then there are many other options. I would check out the following list of free and commercial tools and various libraries at http://testingfaqs.org/t-gui.html.

I hope this helps
