All really good, I especially recommend 7-zip as a brilliant WinZip/WinRAR alternative.

Great list m8.

We all have our personal favorites of course, so the minoir quibblles could go on and on. But anyone wanting a great set of tools should download and install this list without substitution.

I hate 7zip.

NFO viewer is unecessary if you have Notepad++.

I love Notepad++, ImgBurn, uTorrent, and CCleaner. Essentials!!

rollback rx (nuke yr computer and reboot to previous snapshot)
everything (quick as you type file search, similar to locate32)
quotetracker (if you daytrade/ invest in stock, you'll love this.....tdameritrade clients get free registration)
vmware (run sandboxie inside this to prevent virus hopping from downloads to main rig)
presto! linux (quick boot ~10seconds linux, even after trial period, good to have it around prior bedtime for 10minute surfing  ;D instead of "oh look the sun is up" pre-bedtime surfing)

windows sniper allows the program to run, but hides user selected windows
http://www.unhuman.com/WindowsSniper.html

i.e. in the days of old (late 90's), when it was all about number of eyeballs on ads, vs on clicked ads
the alladvantage toolbar lets websurfers  make money watching advertising displayed at the bottom
desktop toolbar

this program 'snipes' the windows and give the user back his valuable monitor real estate
(before the madness known as eyefinity with 1080p 23"lcds)

recently i've been using this again with the free (tdameritrade customers) thinkorswim program
(streaming/ stock quotes news etc) for its free cnbc live stream  ;D
