IrfanView IrfanView

Multi-featured graphics viewer and more 5 stars
An easy-to-use, but very capable Swiss-knife graphics viewer for viewing and converting a wide variety of graphic files and metadata. Also works with many audio and video media file formats using additional plugins. Has a ton of features to handle nearly any task short of advanced editing. Very quick and stable operation and a surprisingly small download considering everything this program can do. Price: Free

EditPad Lite EditPad Lite

Fast, stable, and good 5 stars
Although it doesn't sport the most impressive interface, it has all the features most will ever need, plus it's quick and stable. It's probably the fastest loading freeware text editor out there, even for loading large files of over 100MB or more. Impressive performance. If you need to load large files quickly or just want a solid and responsive text editor, look no further. Price: Free

NetWorx NetWorx

Must-have traffic monitoring tool 5 stars
This is an outstanding traffic monitoring tool. Using the deskband option, it's easy to monitor network traffic, launch networking tools and access statistics, while taking up zero desktop space! This program is updated regularly and has never caused a problem. At this time, I would consider this a best-in-class program. Price: Free

MP3 Diags MP3 Diags

Useful and needed 5 stars
Unlike most single purpose mp3 file utilities, this takes a different approach by providing mp3 file analysis and repair for multiple issues from a single package. Because of this, the program appears somewhat complex, but the developer has done a good job in making the interface as user-friendly as possible. Even if not used to fix every problem, it's very useful to be able to load up a single program to make an initial analysis for a set of mp3 files. Price: Free

FastStone Image Viewer FastStone Image Viewer

XMPlay XMPlay

Among the very best pure music players 5 stars
XMPlay is an outstanding player that has been around for some time and it's still a favorite along with Foobar2000. Small, fast, great sound, and using little resources, this is very well-designed program. Unlike other similar apps that have evolved into bloat-ware, the fact that it's still appreciated while remaining essentially unchanged is testament to its outstanding design and functionality. Price: Free

BOOTICE BOOTICE

Great boot sector utility 5 stars
I've used this tool from its earliest versions and it's fantastic. Bootice simplifies boot sector management tasks using a very easy-to-use interface. It can perform a wide variety of tasks for boot records, partitions, and drives including, but not limited to; viewing, restoring, installing and formatting them. This is probably the easiest to use and most comprehensive tool of its type. It is especially useful for managing multi-partition drives and UFDs (USB Flash Drives). Price: Free

MP3val MP3val

Easy to use 5 stars
This is a single purpose tool that does only one thing - validate and correct errors for MPEG audio files. The package consists of a command-line tool and front end. It's a small, fast, easy-to-use, and portable application that can analyze and repair a large number of MP3 files very quickly. Price: Free

Orbit Downloader Orbit Downloader

Too many issues 2 stars
I did recommended this in the past, but no longer. Like other software, installation requires extra steps to opt-out of web browser tool bars and such, which is aggravating enough. Also this software is updated frequently, but recently these updates have added features that didn't necessarily enhance usability. However, what really changed my mind is the software updater feature that runs in the background, even when turned off in options, and tended to freeze the computer for extended periods of time while it scanned the hard drive and accessed the Web to find updates for installed software. While doing this, the PC became almost unusable. I'm now evaluating freeware alternatives that don't keep adding unneeded features that cause problems, have a more basic installation, and are updated less frequently. Price: Free

SpaceMonger SpaceMonger

Great software 5 stars
Although other tree mapping tools have more dazzling interfaces, they also tend to be bloated, to scan slowly, and are generally not as useful as SpaceMonger. This program is extremely fast, provides details about folder and file size instead of just showing bigger or smaller boxes, and allows users to easily make comparisons with a click of the mouse. It's also portable and a tiny download to boot. Price: Free

Calendar Magic Calendar Magic

Surprisingly good 5 stars
This one surprised me. It is packed with all kinds of date-related features and handy conversion tools and features, limiting the need to open multiple programs such as calculators, calenders, conversion apps, and notepads. Finally, the interface isn't very impressive, but this program's strength is in its usefulness. Don't judge a book by its cover definitely applies here. Hidden gem and worth keeping. Price: Free

Miranda IM Miranda IM

Best one 5 stars
This is a small download, comes in a portable version, has a small footprint, and is devoid of fluff I don't need. It works with multiple protocols and has an amazing set of configurable features that can be tweaked. This is the IM to use for anyone needing a highly configurable basic chat client that works and can do without the resource hogging eye candy and juvenile gimmicks. Price: Free

FreeFileSync FreeFileSync

Synchronization made easy 5 stars
I have used this as my default file synchronization program for over two years. Many file synchronization programs are often either too complex or too simplistic to be useful. This program can perform many complex tasks, but it also has a user-friendly interface with clear and concise buttons and options. The program is very fast, stable, and clean. It also can be executed from the command-line or using scripting languages such as batch files. During installation, it can be installed either either as a regular program or in portable mode. Price: Free

PeerBlock PeerBlock

Works as advertised 5 stars

It blocks IPs from monitoring surfing and P2P activities and helps prevent ads and malware from infecting your system, providing that extra level of safety and security when using web browsers and file sharing applications. Price: Free

NetSetMan NetSetMan

This is good 5 stars
Makes switching between network settings a breeze without having to rely on memory or needing to look-up the information.

Send To Toys Send To Toys

Indispensable 5 stars
This is one of those utilities that is hardly known but shouldn't be. Just right click on a shortcut, file, or folder, and send it where you want it to go. With this program, you can send shortcuts to the quick-launch bar, create shortcuts on the desktop, send data to an application of your choice, and much more. This program blends in so well that it's easy to forget it's an installed application and not part of the Windows system itself. Price: Free

Makes remote support a snap 5 stars
A highly useful tool for enabling remote desktop support. It's very easy to setup and use, even for those with minimal technical knowledge. Just tell them to launch it, provide you with their session ID and you are in control while they watch with amazement. This application also includes a chat feature. Price: Free

7-Zip 7-Zip

Best in class 5 stars
This utility provides plenty of compression related options and the included help files are excellent. Although it can be used as a default type utility without knowing much about the zip/unzip process, it's also an excellent tool for learning what's going on under the hood and highly useful for those with more in-depth knowledge. Price: Free

Everything Everything

I think i found my new default search app 5 stars
This program is great! It's small, fast, and simple - ideal for quickly locating files and folders. It indexes extremely fast (within seconds) and best of all, it automatically monitors file system changes and updates it's database each time the program starts. My 38GB HDD took about 12 seconds to initially index. There is also a portable version available from the author's web site. Price: Free

MediaMonkey MediaMonkey

Probably the best music manager out there 5 stars
MediaMonkey does it all in a very effective way. I haven't found a freeware alternative yet that has so many useful features in such an easy to use package. Although there are some imitators out there, they don't come close to the number of features, clarity of function, or bug-free operation of MediaMonkey. This is high quality software and one of the few non-freeware programs that I highly recommend. Price: Free
