Top Five, not in any real order:

1. Firefox - Has not broken my computer
2. VirtualBox - Saves money and time on hard drives
3. OpenOffice.org - I can't afford MS Office, plus I just don't like Mircosoft's business stratagy
4. AVG Free - It just makes me feel safe, although I don't really need an AV
5. Project 64 - When you can't find a working N64 controller, play your N64 games on your laptop with a superior DualShock 3 controller!

Next five, not in any real order:

6. wxDev-C++ - Nothing much to say... it just works, and I like it
7. Everything Desktop Search - Simple and fast
8. Notepad++ - Lightweight, but powerful
9. Notepad - Lightweight and simple
10. VLC Media Player - Plays DVDs for free!

In no particular order

1. FireFox - Add-ons are the bomb
2. Thunderbird - Again add-ons are great
3. Avast Antivirus- Only AV that detected the virus that got me to this site!
4. Windows Virtual PC for Win 7 with XP mode - Easy VM for a newb like me.
5a. Acronis True Image Home - Only had to use it once but it performed like a champ!
5b. Nero 9 - everything I need to burn whatever I want


Iobit Smart Defrag was in the top five until this http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/268761/iobit-steals-malwarebytes-intellectual-property/

Firefox
Office 2007 and 2010TP (does that count as 2?)
Fastone image editor
Notepad++
Foxit pdf reader

This shortlist has come about as the things I install first each time I rebuilt my laptop - to install an SSD drive and go on to Win7 beta, then again for RC and now RTM. More on this topic here:

1) Live Station, International News Stations, such as Al Jazeera. At the bottom is a chat room where people can discuss whatever is on their minds.
2)Solitaire, One of the greatest time wasters ever devised for the computer!
3)Internet Explorer 8. I can't see the need for a computer without a browser.
4)Belkin Adapter. It is working so much better since I attached it to a 6' USB extension and got it out from behind the computer, and strung it up the curtain to improve it's reception.
5)Avast! Antivirus. Take that, Norton!!!
Bonus: Adobe Reader 9. I always, if given a choice, pick the PDF format to download documents.

One program that I used to love, but now can no longer use: Winamp. Everytime I try to use it, it freezes. :thumbsup: :flowers:
