VLC Media Player VLC Media Player

Plays everything 5 stars
VLC seems to play pretty much every format (at least I have not found a video or audio format it wont play). It's simple to use and best of all it's Free! What more could you ask for. Price: Free

mp3DirectCut mp3DirectCut

Intuative to use 5 stars
I loaded this program because I wanted a standalone audio splitter. It worked "straight out of the box" in a simple to use GUI. It's the best that I have used. Price: Free

Excellent choice 5 stars
TopOCR works surprisingly well for a free product, it is not guaranteed to work 100%. I have used it about ten times and it only failed once. The accuracy in translation is very good. As an occasional OCR program then I would recommend it. If you have a regular use for such a program then it might pay to put your credit card to use. Price: Free

Opera Opera

Best ever browser 5 stars
Opera takes a little time to get used to but the effort is worth while. I occasionally also use Firefox, and if unavoidable use IE; Opera is so much faster than either of these. To try it is to love it! Price: Free

Fantastic security; I run it alongside Kaspersky 2009 and have never had a problem that one or other of these two has not dealt with. Occasionally I also run SpyBot but it never finds anything that has got through. Price: Free
