    excellent program, lets you easily and painlessly remotely view(and control if the user wants) your computer. i've used it for many purposes (including remote ocing). one time, i convinced this random noob to run it so that he could show me some awesome trick in WoW.. i took over his computer and started fucking around with it.. by the time he got back from where he had brb'ed to.. i was into his porn folder and fucking with stuff in there.. was so freaking hilarious..

    Quite handy tool and can save images in different formats .jpeg .bmp etc


    Maybe not quite software but a good addon for Firefox

    I managed to lose my Partition table on my IDE media storage drive, I could see the drive in Disk Management but it showed it as unallocated space. Being a twat I didn't have a backup, and stood to lose 70+gb of pictures, music etc.

    Had a google and found " Testdisk 6.9 ". Bloody brilliant, it rebuilt the partition table in a second and then told me to reboot. Lo and behold all my data was still intact! It also has a data recovery app in the download, though I haven't had to try it out yet. Best of all, its free!

    not a program, but lots of them!

    www.tinyapps.org

    There are some really great apps there. Here's some that I recommend:
    TinyResMeter, which shows what resources are being used, such as pagefile, RAM, CPU, and will also show the IP address and heaps of other stuff.

    JRes: Ever been on a PC that has a bad screen resolution, but you're blocked from changing it? JRes will open in the taskbar and show you every possible resolution that the screen will support, and change it instantly. (it doesn't need admin privileges either!)

    OffByOne internet browser: it is a tiny, tiny browser that will display most webpages.

    Everything on this site is smaller than 1.44 MBs, which means you aren't clogging up your hard drive or wasting your downloads!

    It's one of my favorite programs. They have one for x64 based Windows, since the x86 versions do not work. :p

    This site has a bunch of video converters and tools that are all free. It's especially useful for converting stuff too put on a phone, PSP, mp4 player etc..

    The only one's I have to offer probably won't be of interest to many here, and context specific, but hey.
    Sharepod nifty tool for those w/ a pod

    Ruckus You'll need access to an active college e-mail account for this, and its become a tad bloated w/ advertisements. But free and legal music, you can't argue w/ that.

    Audicy Requires you to play an instrument (or like mixing on your own), but free recording software thats solid is pretty hard to come by.

    Fair Use
    Down with DRM.:rockout:

    Oh and DVD shrink. Backs up DVDs and compresses them w/o removing the quality.
