So here's my attempt at such a list.

I'm certain that there are others with several suggestions, which I would be waiting to get.

Disk Defrag - Disk Cleanup - Disk/File Management/Recovery/Encryption/Backup - System Information
Disk Defrag
MyDefrag
Defragmenting tool with numerous options, useful for different types of disks (in terms of use - "system disk" or "data disk" and physically - a USB thumb drive or a usual internal hard drive). Not exactly for the Average Joe however.

Defraggler
A simpler defragmenting tool that also allows defragmentation of individual files. Piriform has other useful programs besides this (which would be making an appearance later on).

Auslogics Disk Defrag
Another alternate choice for disk defragmenting needs.

Disk Cleanup
CCleaner
Another program from Piriform, arguably the primary disk cleanup program of many.

Disk/File Management/Recovery/Encryption/Backup
Recuva
A file recovery program from Piriform.

Double Killer
Is a "fast and easy to use application for finding and removing duplicate files."

Advanced Renamer
Rename multiple files quickly with this program.

True Crypt
A free open-source disk encryption software.

Teracopy
Copying files made faster and easier through this application.

Space Sniffer
Know which file occupies how much space where with this program.

TreeSize Free
Scan directory sizes and spot space hogs quickly with this application.

Cobian Backup
Free software for your "backupping" needs.

Bacula
And here's another.

System Information
CPU-Z
Usually comes first to mind when thinking about such programs.

HWMonitor
From the creators of CPU-Z, focusing more on temperatures, voltages and fan speeds.

GPU-Z
Foremost choice for information on your GPU(s).

Real Temp
A "temperature monitoring program designed for all Intel single Core, Dual Core, Quad Core and Core i7 processors."

Core Temp
A CPU temperature monitoring program alternative.

Speccy
A system information program from Piriform.

Blue Screen View
View BSOD information in your system's dump files.

SpeedFan
Versatile program which also allows fan control.

HWINFO32
"It is a professional hardware information and diagnostic tool supporting latest components, industry technologies and standards. Designed to collect and present the maximum amount of information possible about computer's hardware which makes it suitable for users searching for driver updates, computer manufacturers, system integrators and technical experts as well. Retrieved information is presented in a logical and easily understandable form and can be exported into various types of reports."

System Explorer
A free program for exploration and management of System Internals.

CrystalDiskInfo
A HDD/SSD utility software which supports S.M.A.R.T. and a part of USB-HDD.

File Compression/Decompression - Media Players, Codecs and Media Servers- Media Files Conversion, Creation and Editing - Video Card Utilities
File Compression/Decompression
7-Zip
My first choice for file compression/decompression.

WinRAR
Congraturation, you are WinRAR.

WinZIP
And here's another one.

Media Players, Codecs and Media Servers
Winamp
Audio and video player. I usually restrict its use to audio files however.

CCCP
The codecs pack that will choose you. In Soviet Russia, it is not you who choose the codecs, for the codecs choose you!

Media Player Classic - Home Cinema is included, the best media player out there today.

VLC media player
An alternative...alternative media player.

Foobar2000
Another one, also a popular choice.

Media Jukebox
A totally free media center.

PS3 Media Server
A transcoding media server that works with more than just the PS3. it is also cross platform, working on Windows, Linux or Mac.

Tversity
Another option for a media server. Works better with other devices if you don't need advanced subtitle support.

Media Files Conversion, Creation and Editing
SUPER
A program with a comprehensive list of files to convert to and from.

HandBrake
Included here to add variety.

MediaCoder
Another choice for the alternatives.

Virtual DJ
It's free. That doesn't mean it's easy to use and quick to get the hang of it though.


Video Card Utilities
Afterburner
Now the primary option for video card tweaking. And yes, it works even with non-MSI cards.

Rivatuner
The program which forms the basis for Afterburner.

Internet Browsers - Desktop Customization - Productivity Suites - Image Editors
Internet Browsers
Firefox

Chrome

Opera

Safari

Lunascape

Internet Explorer 9
IE9 is included as I'm under the assumption that you haven't updated IE yet and you have either Vista or 7.

Desktop Customization
Rainmeter
Can be either easy to set-up or a nightmare to use, depending on the amount of time you have free. Does not measure the amount of rainfall in your area.

Rocket Dock
A dock for your shortcuts in your desktop.

RK Launcher
Another useful dock program.

Productivity Suites
OpenOffice

LibreOffice

CutePDF Writer
Create PDF files and make them cute.

PDF Creator
Alternative PDF creation here.

Foxit Reader

A free alternative to Adobe's Photoshop.

Paint.NET
Another free image editor.

Inkscape
Alternative vector graphics editor.

Image Resizer for Windows
Exactly what it says in the title.

Greenfish Icon Editor Pro
It's free, very capable (like GIMP) and can handle more than just icons; has full support of the ICO format.

POV-Ray
"The Persistence of Vision Raytracer is a high-quality, totally free tool for creating stunning three-dimensional graphics."

While Soluto Beta focuses on the boot, it already researches for frustrations and helps map the PC Genome, allowing you to share your wisdom with others." Yes, it's still in Beta.

Good idea! A program I'm using frequently due to it's simplicity is Bluescreenview which simply shows data about BSOD's. You can see this without the program, but it's so easy to use I've fallen in love with it.

@Entropy : If you remove the CR/NLs after the links and uses something like " - ", you can tighten up the original post so it's not so long.

for instance
Great Web Sites
TPU - TechPowerUp! Website.

Unparsed it looks like ...
[url="http://www.techpowerup.com"]TPU[/url] - TechPowerUp! Website.


You don't have to do that, it's just a suggestion. :toast:

Hmm ... you can underline it, but font resizing doesn't work. Oh well. Carry on. :)

This little baby patches 32-bit .exes so they can use up to 4GB of memory. The possibilities are now slightly less limited.

Sumatra PDF

is a slim, free, open-source PDF viewer for Windows. Sumatra has a minimalistic design. Simplicity has a higher priority than a lot of features. It's small and starts up very fast. Options are a little thin on the ground but SumatraPDF provides a very comfortable environment for reading PDFs and you can print documents without much hassle.
