There is just so much great free stuff on the internet these days. So I think the forums needs a thread to share it. Only rules is no games and most of all, no warez.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
http://www.malwarebytes.org
Very powerful, fast, and lightweight elite on-demand scanner. It will not conflict with A/V software.

SUPERAntiSpyware
http://www.superantispyware.com
Another powerful on-demand scanner. The detection rate surpasses that of Spybot and Ad-Aware.

Enhanced Mitigation Experience Toolkit v2.1
http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/de ... px?id=1677
Nice little tool to help harden your system against many common threats. By applying different techniques to make successful attacks on your system more difficult.

Secunia PSI
http://secunia.com/vulnerability_scanning/personal
Scans your system for applications which are out of date. Provides everything upfront.

SlimDrivers
http://download.cnet.com/SlimDrivers-Fr ... 79940.html
Scan your PC for missing, broken or out of date drivers.

Foxit Reader
http://www.foxitsoftware.com/Secure_PDF_Reader/
One of the lightest PDF readers today. Foxit is by far more secure and faster over Adobe reader.

Combined Community Codec Pack
http://www.cccp-project.net
Simply the best codec pack there is. Works with any Windows OS and it will not junk up your system.

Foobar2000
http://www.foobar2000.org
The best music/audio player out there. Customizations you can do with your music is mind-boggling.

DOSBox
http://www.dosbox.com
Play and record old Dos games.

RocketDock
http://rocketdock.com
Customizable toolbar for Windows. Very low ram usage.

Free Video Converter
http://www.freemake.com/free_video_converter
Convert video free to AVI, MP4, WMV, MKV, MPEG, SWF, 3GP, DVD, MP3, iPod, iPhone, PSP, Android, rip & burn DVD, convert FLV.

7-zip
http://www.7-zip.org
Recommend over Winzip and Winrar.

DiskGenius
http://www.diskgenius.net/download.html
Great tool to recover deleted or corrupted files.

Explorer++
http://www.explorerplusplus.com
Since Windows Explorer crashed and burned in Win7. I found this to be a better alternative.

Notepad++
http://notepad-plus-plus.org
Cleaner interface and gives you more functionality over Notepad.

Process Explorer
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysi ... s/bb896653
Advanced alternative to Task Manager. Comes with a powerful kill switch if a program refuses to shut down. Such as malware!

GIMP - GNU Image Manipulation Program
http://www.gimp.org/
Recommend over hacking Photoshop.. It is picture editing software with tons of tools and options

VLC - VLC media player
http://www.videolan.org/vlc/
Simply "Plays everything" (my personal must-have on any of my computers)

Audacity
Good program to edit audio files.
The difference between successful people from others is
not in the lack of strength,
not in the lack of knowledge,
but rather in the lack of will.
