Unlocker is another extremely useful utility I use often.
No need for SpywareBlaster anymore
or Spy-bots tea timer.
I do also have ;
spywaredoctor 5.***, works well,but has an issue on xp pro sp2 with a windowblinds theme,I have to still,unable,the theme to get the Sd Gui to open.....kind of gay,both techies blame each others codeing.
Outpost firewall pro works great,I only use a few of the addons,the rest are not needed due to Firefox extensions and caching proxy on linux firewall(squid).
AVG has that new anti rootkit I use once a week.
AVG antispyware is a cpu hot box! It'sreal time scanner keeps the pc at 100% cpu so I use it now and then to scan system after I update it,but,it stays off.
Outposts real time scanner brings the cpu to 100% only during page switches,makes page load a bit slower.
HiJack-this is a great tool,known around here for ages.
CPU-z a great must have
jv16 2007 is a great regcleaner as is Error Repair professional.
windirstat listed in Guts link is another great tool to list witch directories are hogging space in detailed format with pretty colors...lol.
SyncBack is an excellent tool to synch files,directories and drives.I use it to sync my 50 gig death metal directory to my externel hard drive,fast and detailed,never missing a beat and can be used in background while doing other crap,even realtime syncing.
TaskInfo 7,another great tool I got turned onto a couple years ago just for the flush file cache tool and flush memory tool....works the best and after a slow memory flush then a file cache flush,things are back to speediness again,so if you have mega explorer tabs/windows open,firefox with mega tabs and extensions,you will be useing this alot.Clears page file too.
ultra iso or winIso all great
autoruns is a good tool as well as ShellExView to help unload right click stuff and shell extensions to help that pesky slow load and 100% cpu when right clicking desktop/dir/folder/etc etc.Great context menu editor.
winscp great ssh tool
flsfxp for ftp client
Notepad2 gives notepad millions more options includeing knowing what project you work in,changeing to correct format.All programming languages I believe are adapted.
acronis diskeditor suit
migrate easy,true image,and privacey expert are must haves.
Not on the list,as well as a few above I mentioned like notepad2.
Proxy Switcher Standard,or another similar for forirefox.(many....elite proxy switcher,proxyway,HideIP,Hide the Ip,etc etc)
For IE I use Ultra.exe Ultra surf,no install just an exe on desktop,changes everytime you open/close ultra.exe.
Charon for checking,but is slow,a better way is useing ForumProxyLeecher to check proxies,then use RapGet to check if works with rapidshare.By the way, legal accounts is what this is for
USDownloader is another great tool.There are many varieties to fully automate things like FineReader to auto figureout/enter the capcha.
Athena is good too,just search for Athena.exe....nuff said.Raptor.exe similarly related and works great.VLP and sentry.
Crark along with an extensive password list will help for those moronic rar/zip files people add passwords to but forget to post on blogs and whatnot.
RapidSeek is a rapidshare search tool,enter what you are looking for and away it goes.
Enough of blog downloading and what not.
More great useful utils;
Cue Splitter-splits one big mp3 file into seperate mp3's.Some idiots record an album into one mp3...dufus!
Acoustica Audio Converter Pro-for those knuckleheads who never converted the album for .wav to .mp3,this does the entire directory or single file on the fly,fast,and low resources.
Converts quite a bit of different file types.Context menue entries.
albumArtDownloader,great tool,but,I wish it would scan my directories and get the albums for each album dir(anyone know one that does this?)
AQScript,I got this context menu tool for when encodeing my cd ollection to hard drive to Uber standards http://www.chrismyden.com/bestmp3guide.php
Until a "bestmp4" guide comes out,this is how I do it.
klite codec pack or vista codec pack,elcard is good too.
Uber Options and Auto Hot Key are great tools for anyone with logitech setpoint drivers.It allows mega more options.
AutoHotkey is great for anyone,allows ya to record key shortcut and mouse shortcuts into scripts witch become .exe's when converting via rt clicking.
ExplorerXP...an explorer option,not much better thaan explorer....lol,cool sailboat icon though.
Intel hyper threading test utility,frequency id tool,and the intel processor id utility too figure out what ya have through the intel many different names,id's etc etc.
nLite for ;

Phoenix Soft shoutcast Menu Browser for foobarr2000 and other players.No need to sift through shoutcast website anymore for decent stations.
DiamndCs Process Guard,Port Explorer,SDLoader
Process explorer....option to use PE instead of task manager when clicking task manager.This replacement is much more featureful.
TreeWalkDNs (formally BindPE) with DNSKong,and Proxy Firewall, updates root-servers,proxify dns,allows ya to hit up some websites with root-slave addon that ya normally arent allowed or cannot possibly get to.Treewalk alone speeds up surfing,also switch OOL dns servers to Verizon 18.104.22.168 and 22.214.171.124 did the trick!
vadilia tor privoxy bundle(windows)same but replace vadilia with TorK in linux.
TCP Optimiser(better than Dr TCP)
stunnle for ssl ftp fxp transfers
XnView is a utility for viewing and converting
graphic files.Good tool
Driver genius pro
upx300 compact some exe's
Solve....a local shared object viewer lso's are a type of cookie sort of,that is just another way one can be spyed on....what else is new.
Thats it for now,at least for windows xp....
My 2003 server(as a desktop) is very similar.
