    Right, where to start :) I assume you run Windows OS.

    1. Gimp for photo editing

    2. OpenOffice.org instead of MS Office (I actually prefer it)

    3. Auslogics Disk Defrag - a really cool defrag utility

    4. Auslogics Registry Cleaner

    5. CCleaner to get rid of junk files

    6. Recuva to recover your files

    7. Avira Personal - a great free antivirus

    8. SuperAntiSpyware

    9. Audacity (if you're into sound editing)

    10. FileInspect Sidebar Gadget to monitor system resources

    Cool programs?

    Well you never want to just 'add software' to your PC. Most definitely if your wanting 'cool' software.

    There are tons of software and applications for Online Interaction.

    I ALWAYS have these programs on my PC's.

    Firefox (Latest Release Candidate)

    Avast 5 (Premium Version, it's a virus protection program)

    Comodo (Premium, it's a firewall program)

    Adobe Bundle (Paid Latest Candidates, I do web design)

    Trillian (Paid Latest Candidate, combines all messengers into 1)

    I have a few others, but I don't OVERLOAD my pc at all. It can be very risky and harmful to your PC doing that.
