That's what I thought as well, so we need a thread to get people to realize that everything you need is free (like this site) :)

Peer Guardian: http://phoenixlabs.org/pg2/

I guess I have to describe it to get it on that list:

Peer Guardian is capable of blocking incoming and outgoing connections based on IP blocklists. The system is also capable of blocking custom ranges, depending upon user preferences. Great for security/privacy fans and also p2p users.

I suggest splitting these into categories instead of straight alphabetical order. Office Software, Graphical programs (2d and 3d,) Audio recording and editing, Multimedia players, CD/DVD software, Video editing software, web browsers, etc.

These are good threads, I've seen them on most forums I frequent.

I'll add a few things later.

MediaMonkey is probably my favorite media library program right now. Doesn't have the video capabilities of winamp, but it's absolutely money for music. I haven't tried SongBird out yet though and I'm thinking of doing that if I ever have to go back to playing music off my laptop.

Forgot to add this to my other post, Daemon Tools is another good program. Runs CD/DVDs off images. I run a few games with Daemon Tools, no need to use a cd or wait for any load time, runs fast and smooth.

http://www.daemon-tools.cc/downloads

Daemon Tools lite is the free one.

OpenOffice is absolutely amazing.

Gimp instead of photoshop.

Avast or AVG for antivirus
Hell, I use almost no proprietary software(even dual boot Ubuntu.) But I still like Itunes, I have tried a bunch of different music playing software, but I haven't liked any of them.

Agreed. I have had it for a year and a half now and it is wonderful. Not once have I ever had a problem playing any file I wish to. It also looks nice and the video image is sharp (I know that has to do with what files I am playing but still).

File Shredder...way better than recycling bin, deletes up to 7 times, so can't ever be found, unlike recycling bin where when you empty it its still somewhere on your hard drive taking up space. And also gives option of deleting i think 20 times if your really afraid.

Wait, sorry if I seem dumb, but just trying to clarify. So if you have a game CD, but it's scratched so it doesn't run, you can use the program to run the game without the CD, but it has to have been previously installed?

Because there is a game I've wanted to play for years, but the CD is scratched so I can't load it on my computer and am too lazy to buy a new. But if it had to be installed first, then nevermind.

No, it saves an image of the disc to your computer so you dont have to put the CD in the drive. Instead, it's like having the CD on your hard drive.

So like for a game, if I hadn't installed the game, but use this program, would it then allow me to install the game using the image of the CD or would I need to actually use the CD to install? Because that's my problem, that the CD is scratched and I can't install.
