Free PDF + Ghostscript: Install Ghostscript first, then FreePDF. Works better than PDF Creator
Print PDF files from all your installed software via the print menu

Ghostscript | Free Graphics software downloads at SourceForge.net
http://freepdfxp.de/FreePDF4.06.EXE
http://freepdfxp.de/FreePDFXPAdmin.pdf

is there a reason to use FreePDF over Foxit? oh i see, this is a creator not a reader..

AutoHotKey (autohotkey.com) is a very lightweight but powerful automation tool. You can remap keyboard strokes or mouse clicks to pretty much anything you want (Also great for playing practical jokes on unsuspecting users! :-). However it will require some programming ability.

yes sir, i am a big user of AHK. doesn't require as much programming ability as you would think



my additions (besides the obvious VLC, Paint.NET, 7-zip):


Notepad++ - best free text editor i've found, and i like the built in Zenburn theme
CDBurnerXP - cd/dvd burning software
Foxit PDF reader - alternative to Adobe Acrobat
KeePass - password manager
Microsoft Security Essentials - i think all antivirus software is a waste, but i'm fairly competent with computers. i use this simply because its easy and lightweight
Sandboxie - better security solution if you doubt the credibility of something
Flux - save your eyes: dim your monitor at night

Desktop Customization Tool

Another one.... I also use Rainmeter (rainmeter.net) as a desktop customization tool. It lets me put certain information on my desktop (CPU Utilization, Hard Drive usage, Network usage, RSS Feeds, etc) so I have quick access to that information without have to open up another program. It's lightweight and it offers a lot of customization if you want.

Hi,

In addition to some software already listed, I also use:

Jing, for easy screenshots: Jing, screenshot and screencast software from TechSmith
It also performs screencasts, but I have never tried. It seems to belong to the Camtasia family.

Free Alarm Clock: Free Alarm Clock for Windows
to very easily set an alarm for the news and the end of session

Nicolas

a site that I have used in the past is www.keepvid.com

But I've found the best is to use Firefox plugin Video DownloadHelper

Besides Jing, ScreenHunter is another good softeware for screenshots: Wisdom-soft Downloads

You have to scroll down to find the free version (ScreenHunter 6, version 6.0.225)..
