    Cross VLC off and put media player classic hc (64bit) - it has numerous advantages over VLC (eg built in h.264 decoder with hardware acceleration, multi threading). VLC is for n00bs
    stick ffdshow on the list too!

    Mediaportal too

    Yeh he meant that. +1 on it. It is really good. Simpler to use than GIMP, but GIMP has some nice extra features so is worth having too.

    Remember Mediaportal too

    and Comodo firewall

    Not sure if this counts as it's a web-app, but I think Sumo Paint is worthy as an online imaging tool (if you can use adobe photoshop and/or adobe illustrator then you feel right at home, and you can even use right click actions).

    Fancy adding Malwarebytes Anti Malware to that list dude.

    Really good program, has helped the removal of some nasty stuff in the past that other software struggled with.

    Whatpulse - Tracks how many keystrokes and mouse clicks you do. Very interesting to see how much you actually type, what keys you press the most, how many types you click your mouse and how much you move it. Join the hexus.net team.

    If you're going to post links a brief description of the app, or at least where it should go would help, it's not always obvious!
