Just curious to see what software members use. This could give some insight for some who don't know what to get. You can add a small comment on each app if you wish. I'm a gamer 1st. Apps come in second. My games list is massive compared to the software i use. But we all need some important apps for everyday use and whatnot. Here's my current apps for now. Anti-Virus: Eset Nod 32 (3.0.694) So long Norton. Nuf said Web Browsing: Internet Explorer 8. It comes included with Windows and i don't have issues with it. Email: Windows Mail It may be slow but I'm not in a hurry anyway. Music & Video: Windows Media Center Come with Vista. I don't really need anything else. It's cool to watch TV too. Office Suite: Microsoft Office 2007 (student/Teacher Edition). It was only 100$, Why pay an extra 300$ just to get Outlook? Graphics suite: CorelDraw Graphics suite X4. Adobe's suite is just too expensive. Corel was the next logical choice. Image Browser: Faststone Image viewer 4.0. I was a fan of Acdsee until i came across Faststone. Web Authoring: Net objects Fusion 8. It's old but for what i do, it's sufficient. Defragging: Raxco's Perfectdisk 10 (build 129). I don't mind paying for such a good product. System tools (File & Registry cleaner): Ccleaner & Jv16 Powertools 2009 Cleaner is fast & free. Jv16 takes care of the rest. CD/DVD Burning: Ashampoo Burning Studio 9.21. I can't complain about this thing. It works great. Zipping: 7Zip 9.10 beta. Lightweight & free. Does more than i need. Password Manager: Keepass 2.09 Another great freeby. I could never access some of my accounts if it was'nt for this thing. I have some ridiculous and impossibly complex passwords. Data Recovery: Recuva 1.35 Yes. Deleting something important can happen especialy when you use "shift+del". I skipped a few but this is most of it.
