must-have freeware

well, I just installed my new laptop and there's still quite some programs left to install...now I wonder, do you guys have any (free) programs you consider a "must" on your pc? if so, share! we might find them useful.

 

what i tend to install on every pc/laptop: CCleaner, Notepad++, Paint.NET, OpenOffice (yes), Mozilla Firefox (duh) and VLC Media player

 

which are yours? I might make a list with programs and links to get them from.

Spybot and SpywareBlaster for immunization

Malwarebytes and Spybot for ad/spy/malware scanning and removal

A good antivirus (duh)

When reinstalling OSX the only piece of freeware I install is Firefox. Other than that I have Office 2011 and various Adobe programs installed.

Pinnacle Videospin of course. For all movie creators of youtube. Just like nero or a few other movie makers. But 100% free.

"must have" means something that everyone must use, not just those with a need for.

If you're into video editing and need something that's free, then maybe this is a good choice. However if you're not then it's not a "must have" thing.

A web browser (other than IE), a media player, document editor (like MS Office but free in this case), anti-virus and so on; these are things that everyone must have.

 

Don't get me wrong, I'm sure someone would want to check it out. I didn't even know about so it's a nice thing for me to keep in mind for the next time I talk to someone with that need, that is to go long with all of the other choice I usually give.

WinRAR is shareware, not freeware....

 

Instead of WinRAR, I suggest 7Zip

You're right everyone should go here http://www.gtaforums.com/index.php?showtopic=419566

So for that I will close this.

 

As for it being un/pinned, I'm not the one that unpinned it and I don't know why it was unpinned.
