Since the last thread mysteriously vanished I decided to reboot the list and start from the ground up. You are free to discuss and argue about your favorites and offer suggestions to add the list but please, DO NOT add every program you have ever used in your entire life. I want to keep this short and sweet. If you do offer something, please supply a URL to the OFFICIAL website if you can.

All free unless noted otherwise. Your results may vary.

^ Must be your OS and the hardware it relies on.

What about Tune up?Lets you change your icons on your windows computer. How could your forget photoshop?

Oh and Revo uninstaller is a must if you have a windows OS.

Photoshop only if you don't mind paying a lot/"borrowing" the software. Otherwise, there are free alternatives, like GIMP. There's also Paint.NET for a slightly fancier MS Paint.

Also, Notepad++ for a fancier Notepad. Good if you do any programming, as it does highlighting based on language. And it has tabs.
