A list of all the applications you consider useful. I'm a Windows man, so of course my list will be comprised entirely of Windows' apps, so if you're on a Mac or one of the various Linux distro's be sure to specify that. I'd prefer it if you kept things free, but if you've got something that's worth pirating, well, that works. Links are appreciated as well, though I realize a few of you can't be bothered to add one as much as I can't be to google for it. - Everyone should be aware of this program by now, it's good for murdering spyware and the like. Never scanned for spyware before? Get this now. AVG Anti-Virus - An awesome AV program, free as well. - My favorite torrent program, simple and efficient. - A screen-capping program that also records video, handy for whatever, though hitting Print Screen works just as well (unless you're recording video obviously.) - A damn good image-viewer, much better than the one that comes packed with Windows. Messenger Plus! - A handy plug-in for MSN Messenger that adds a whole new league of functionality. One of the more annoying features being the ability to play sound (ask KK about that one, fucker.) - The world's best web browser, free and much better than IE. - Another alternative to IE, some would argue that it's better than Firefox, though I've never tried it. - A handy registry cleaner. - Another reg-cleaner, I use it in conjunction with RegScrubXP, overkill? Maybe.... Spybot - Search and Destroy - An alternative to Ad-Aware, or partner in my case. It picks up some things that Ad-Aware would normally miss, and vice-versa I'm sure. - A great IRC client, comes with a load of great scripts. - The best audio player around. - My favorite compression utility. Keep it alive, folks.
