Be Well Cool

P.S. - yule, if necessary, we can give you a hand keeping it up-to-date, by editing and adding the replyed links. just tell us how you want it, and if you don't have the chance to update it, it will stay here just the same Wink

hmm then i didn't see it then. i thought he'd spend the time typing it Very Happy.

truth is: there is no need to reinvent the wheel. if the work was already done (somewhere else) and is something usefull for our community, i have to thank yule for finding it and bringing it here. the original posters name is a nice touch, showing respect for his work (i want to believe it was left there on purpose).

Be Well Cool
homer09001
u forgot:

Winrar
Windows MediaPlayer

there lots more i can't think of them at the mo

and does anyone know wher ei can get a keylogger e.g. one that counts total amount of keys pressed on my pc?
noliver
Uhm , as far as I know WinRAR is not free. But then again - I may be wrong. Smile

Windows Media Player is also not free. You will have a hard time playing it on a non-windows system Smile

Cheers,

If you like linux and you want to install in your linux all apps that you got in windows, this page could be useful for you:

http://alts.homelinux.net

Here you'll find the similar software for linux to many software for windows such as office, games, utilities, programmming environments, etc.

I hope it be useful.

I've found the Microsoft Anti-Spyware (beta) does a pretty good job. I used to use Spybot and Ad-Aware exclusively, but this program found stuff that they didn't.

A good free Photoshop-looking program: Paint.Net

Info: http://www.eecs.wsu.edu/paint.net/

Download http://www.eecs.wsu.edu/paint.net/files/zip/PaintDotNet_2_1b_Full.zip

!! You also need Microsoft .Net Framework: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=262d25e3-f589-4842-8157-034d1e7cf3a3&DisplayLang=en

I've come to the conclusion.. that to rid yourself completely of any adware or virii you need EVERY antivirus and antiadware program there is lol. That is always the case with those programs. One catches things the others dont.. they all catch something the other ones dont.
Donutey
very nice and informative list. people need to know that paying $$ is not always the best route... often open source/free programs offer much greater functionality for FREE...
huffy53
OMG ive searched for free apps in a search engine and found less apps before this list is massive thanx dude we love free stuff lol
mitja
For those that have many huge photos to manage:
http://www.virtualzone.de/resizer/
It's simply the best resizer for Win i've ever found!
sontex
wow.. the best list ever.. thanks so much for posting this great list
i found so many new usefull program from ur list..
neil_swann80
Agreed, great list. Anyone recommend any useful ppc software?
Resident Egoist
This is starting to sound rather very redundant, but anyway: great list, and great thanks for taking the time to compile it.

Here's my addition:

Netbeans: this is a new and great crossplatform Java IDE -- for any developers out there.

Google Talk: New Instant Messaging Client by Google (Beta). Requires a gmail account -- if you don't have one, PM me and I'll send you an invitation.
etan
Here's my addition:

Picasa2 http://picasa.google.com/download/
kimia
Thanks for your nice list .
I add to it Opera web-browser.
Opera 8.5 is free and the best web browser.

Irfanview (image viewer)

Cannot stress enough; very awesome, small image viewer. Especially works well also as a Batch-Conversion tool (like if you wanted to reduce 100 pictures to 150x150 resolution and compress to JPEG).
modak
Download 5 cds of OpenSuse and get software with all that functionality installed on your machine out of the box. Smile

Can we list smartftp as free application?
It is free for noncomercial use and education but not free for business.

My signature: what I post reflect my thinking and knowledge. Sometimes, it may be wrong. So I am not responsible for what I posted. If my thinking is correct and it benefits you. Just PM me to thank me. My website is www.msu.edu/~avss. Feel free to visit my organization. These is no limit for the bandwidth for my website. You can visit it at anytime. But please dont hack it coz I'll kill you. (I just got my black belt in karate last week).

I love PhotoStory 3 - from Microsoft
pjv
I've been using some of the appz you mentioned and I assure you a lot them is better than the proprietary counterpart . Nothing is better than free softwares Surprised

Great list and great job!
steveadams617
Examines the differences between whole directories files and shows you highlited line by line the differences.

Great for version control problems after walking away from code for awhile or installing code on different servers for different clients.

http://www.maxthon.com Maxthon browser - A very good one, with few useful plugins (combo version) and lot of skins and plugins to download. Also very good parasite, popup and activeX protection level.
kenetix
Here are other two sites that I can recommend:
http://www.softpedia.com - all sorts of software(for windows, linux & mac), news, reviews, drivers
http://www.soft32.com - this one has all sorts of software too
srijit
at the risk of sounding repetitive, great list Very Happy
you can get more by searching for linux alternatives for windows programs, but of course that works for linux only Very Happy

Under "Encryption" you should add the following:

Enigmail - http://enigmail.mozdev.org
WinPT - http://wald.intevation.org/projects/winpt/
GPGee - http://gpgee.excelcia.org/

These all give you the functionality of PGP (they use GnuPG http://www.gnupg.org) but they don't cost you anything at all, and are a bit more "lightweight" than the new PGP, which has somewhere around 1000 registry entries, I believe.

To get full encryption functionality, I'd recommend that you use Enigmail with Mozilla Thunderbird 1.0.7, Mozilla Thunderbird 1.5RC1, Mozilla Suite or Mozilla Seamonkey
root
irssi should be included IRC =P

and DAEMON Tools is an awesome program for mounting isos

and ActionOutline (although not free) is amazing for taking notes


(thats just some of the apps I use)

i'm suggest adding this Anti-Spyware program:
Spyware Doctor: http://www.pctools.com/spyware-doctor/

it's a great program, i've found several spyware that i didn't initially find with any other program. the free version blocks all incoming spyware but if you want to scan your PC, you'll have to pay for it but other then that, it's a very useful program that i recommend for everybody.

Why not add MediaMonkey, a musicplayer!

I propose to add this other tool:
Ccleaner cleans your windows temp files and all the rotten stuff slowering down your computer. You can select which things you want to clean, or just scan without cleaning, in order to know which unused files your computer is having on the hard disk.
Here is the URL:
http://www.ccleaner.com/
I use it very often and it is working very well.
jeffsolodky
Loved the list as well, the only thing I would add is that if you are on OS X and you want a good IM chat client, use Adium (http://www.adiumx.com), it is so much better than iChat. But most likely, no one else uses Apple computers sigh.
zence
miranda is the best of course! i carry my msn, yahoo, google, icq list in 400 KB of miranda in my usb:)
bassgs_17
Excellent list, but you should add Maxthon (web browser). Keep up the good work. Do you mind if I use this list on my site? PM me for details.

Do you know of any program that allows me to insert a program disk in the CD drive and play it without installing it?

This depends on the program itself - there are very few commercial programs that will run without an installation since they require changes in the registry, file associations etc.

If you want to keep a "clean" copy of Windows and use another to install a load of apps, you could possibly look into VMWare - there's a free trial version available.

Otherwise, I don't really understand why you would want to run programs without installing them.

Well Everytime I try to install battlefield 2 it freezes at de/whidata0.htm which is annoying and it worked perfectly fine when I first bought it. It was either I found a program or reinstall it which is too much work.

thanks, that is an awesome list. i just wanted to mention that winlibre is an entire suite of free software, which includes some of the items on the list and adds others. it is currently at release 0.3.1, but many of the programs in the suite are bulletproof, with the source code available on sourceforge. Winlibre is available at http://www.winlibre.com.

One of my favorite apps in the package is PDFCreator, which is an open source program to make PDF files from most wordprocessing or graphics packages. I have Adobe PDF creator 5, and actually like the functionality of the free package more.

Winlibre also includes openoffice, an MP3 player with Oogvorbis support, an MP3 ripper, VLCMedia player for video playback, ClamWin for antivirus support (which I find to be not quite a user friendly as Avast!), and Nettime for syncrhonization to timeservers.

I have not tested all of the applications yet (they are on my spare/test machine now, and I am trying them out as time permits). The ones I have tested all seem to work well, and the installations package is pretty friendly. One workd of advice, if you are installing the winlibre package, do not restart between applications when they ask (some, like the Java2 installation want to know if you would like to reboot after that portion of the Winlibre install). i found that it is best to install all of the applications you have chosen before rebooting.

I especially like the Yahoo! Widget Engine (aka Konfabulator) if you have a couple of megs extra RAM for it.

http://widgets.yahoo.com

Wonder when they'll stop stealing ideas from Apple.

I would like to give you many thanks for that list, not only is it the biggest I have every seen, but also the best. Thanks very much for that.

If you are adding things to the list when they are posted (I don't know if you are) I would sagest a few programs

IRC
Ice Chat www.icechat.net/

OCR (Optical character recognition)
www.simpleocr.com/
This is a very good program for turning those pages you scan back in to text.

Also I can't see CCleaner in your list, it removes temp files.
www.ccleaner.com/
Or another program that dose the same thing, Clean up
www.stevengould.org/software/cleanup/

Hope you maintain that list is is awesome.

That's a long list, but maybe you could add a description for each program. I would rather read about what something does before I go to the home page and find it is something I don't need or want.

Good job though, must have taken a while. Very Happy

Security Tools


Nirsoft's CPORTs displays the list of all currently opened TCP/IP and UDP ports on your local computer. For security reason, CurrPorts also automatically mark with pink color suspicious TCP/UDP ports owned by unidentified applications. Personally, I found this one is better than ActivePort, because it offers export the port information to HTML/XML/Text file with command line options.

Spybot Search & Destroy: Besides its main objective is removing adwares/spywares/dialers/keyloggers/trojans/usage tracks, Spybot-SD has many valuable features such as Tea Timer (real-time registry protection); A comprehensive System report. Especially, System Startup section shows the important degree of programs that loaded at startup based on Paul Collins Startup list. With its help, I have removed a lot of unnecessary programs (almost are programs' update checkers), thus reducing system load, and save network bandwidth.

KL-Dectector : This portable program is used to find out whether your activity is being recorded without your knowledge. It is designed to be able to detect all keyloggers. Best for use in public computer.

Portable ClamWin: Standalone Virus Scanner that can automatic downloads of Virus Database updates

Does anyone know of any good java decompilers? Smile
I don't think they're illegal, though there's some controversy over them I think...

crimson editor should be added under programming. http://crimsoneditor.com
zjosie729
I didn't have time to read the whole thing, but I skimmed it. I don't think I saw Google SketchUp on there. [url=http://www.sketchup.com/]

I think Google SketchUp is an awesome 3D sketching application. [/url]

That's a long list, but maybe you could add a description for each program. I would rather read about what something does before I go to the home page and find it is something I don't need or want.

Good job though, must have taken a while. :D

It's really big list, all my preferred apps were specified. Some another idea. You could add poll for each SW category. It will be good indicator.

Are all those freeware of just trialware ?

These thing are all freeware. Read the first post please.

Here is a systems administrator tool.

http://www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/

Bart's PE Builder helps you build a "BartPE" (Bart Preinstalled Environment) bootable Windows CD-Rom or DVD from the original Windows XP or Windows Server 2003 installation/setup CD, very suitable for PC maintenance tasks.

It will give you a complete Win32 environment with network support, a graphical user interface (800x600) and FAT/NTFS/CDFS filesystem support. Very handy for burn-in testing systems with no OS, rescuing files to a network share, virus scan and so on. This will replace any Dos bootdisk in no time!

GVim is also a great text editor. It is my Windows Notepad replacement. GVim is Vim for Windows. It is at http://www.vim.org.

For audio software, such as audio editing, the WavePad of NCH Swift Sound is one of the best that I have tried so far.

Audacity is also good.

Is it really reliable? Does it replace Nero in all functions? Do you trust it to burn your most valuable data? Is it bloated like Nero? (kind of a dimb question for a sf application but say anyway Razz)
And thanks.

As a web developer, here are my essentials.

Web Developer Server Suite
This suite is easy to install and contains the following:

* Apache server
* MySQL
* phpMyAdmin
* Joomla
* WordPress
* Drupal
* phpBB
* MediaWiki

It happily runs alongside the .NET framework as well. For any serious developer it's an excellent solution.

TopStyle Lite
The best CSS editor I have come across. There is a Pro version at a cost, but for CSS editing, this free version is superb.

Notepad2
An excellent replacement for Windows Notepad. It has syntax highlighting for numerous programming and markup languages, and the colours used for the highlighting are configurable.

Notepad++
My favourite text editor. Just as with Notepad2, this is a Windows Notepad replacement. It's not quite as nice to look at compared with Notepad2, although some configuration can make it look nicer. Plus it has a tabbed interface which is very handy if you're working on more than one file at a time, or need to copy something from one file to another without having two windows open.

SmartFTP
In my opinion, the best free FTP program available. It's certainly one of the nicest to look at, borrowing it's look from MS Office 2003.

Portable Apps Suite
An excellent suite of free applications that run from a USB drive. The standard instalation includes: ClamWin Portable (antivirus), Mozilla Firefox - Portable Edition (web browser), Gaim Portable (instant messaging), OpenOffice.org Portable (office suite), Sudoku Portable (puzzle game), Mozilla Sunbird - Portable Edition (calendar/task manager) and Mozilla Thunderbird - Portable Edition (email client). This runs really well on a 512MB drive, but if you have a larger drive spare to use for this, you can add many more free portable apps such as Opera, Audacity, 7Zip, RoboForm, NVu, The GIMP, Filezilla, Sumatra PDF, the afformentioned Notepad++. Basically any application that claims to run on a USB stick can be included in this. When open, it just puts an icon the "systray" or "notification area" on your machine.

I suppose mIRC should be on the list under IRC clients. I mean sure it does prompt you to register after 30 days but after about 5 seconds you can click continue and continue to use it anyways. registering only removes the box that tells you to register and you lose no functionality if you don't register, or gain any new features if you do Confused

Thanks to this list, I got Super,
which seems to be like what J F K was recommending in command line conversion for DVD production.

Super just gives a nice front end for it.

Happy New Year, too.

I want to recommend a program called Launchy. It's an awesome tool that will enhance your work under Windows framework. Something like Run menu, but much much better. Allows you to run almost any program that you ever installed on your computer. You can also configure a hotkey to run it.
Details: http://www.launchy.net


Edit:
I forgot to add another program I like. It's a small, ultra light, and free PDF reader. It's called Foxit Reader. I had a few problems with Adobe's Reader so I looked for an alternative, and found it. Really good and does it's job.

Hi.
I just wanted to tell that I have tried out GnuPG. (which was listed),
only that I installed GPG4Win which gives GUI to the "application", and FireGPG which gives direct support for pgp encryption in GMail.

And I must say, it works really well.
You can download them here (as I don't think these were on the list...)

http://gpg4win.org

Also I spotted this Firefox plugin, called freenigma, which claims to give support for yahoo and hotmail aswell. Haven't tried it out yet, though:

Firewalls
ZoneAlarm
This is my favorite firewall. Made by Zone Labs, it will render your computer invisible to hackers? probes. Hackers run scanning programs over the Internet, looking for computers with electronic openings, called ports. A good firewall such as ZoneAlarm makes your computer invisible to the scanners. (Note: This program phones home)

The goal of these intruders is to place a Trojan horse on your computer. The rogue program uses the open port previously identified by a scanner. However, ZoneAlarm blocks those transmissions. They can only go through if you agree. Always say no, unless you recognize the program.

Thank you for the list. Quite handy.

silverdown you can check out www.comodo.com for another free firewall software. It also has a free anti virus program and anti-malware program. I've used them before and it seems pretty good.

another good sofware for converting anything to PDF is by using primopdf. you can get it from www.primopdf.com

This is an excellent list!

I was cleaning out my computer today, and remeber this list was here at frihost. As soon as I cleared out all the junk I didn't want anymore, I cam stright here and replaced some of my old programs with some from this list.

Thanks a lot!
Phil
The free version of Winamp is pretty neat...... as a player. Can't rip CDs to MP3.
Foobar is neat too. My only problem is that you need to do considerable tweaking to it to configure it.

A free CD Ripping program I use is EAC, Exact Audio Copy. Not built for speed though. Made to get, well.... an exact copy of the cd.

Hijackthis and other hack-cleaning for registry aren't quite good, because they can delete the reg table for antivirus update, browser home page, etc.

There is also a program called ncleaner, that cleans ur system and registry as well. Works pretty damn good if ya ask me

That program called CCleaner is awesome!

I downloaded it and checked it out, it has some really cool features.

Wow, very good list! All programs here are very reliable, but as for antiviruses I prefer NOD32.
And for system registry cleaning I use RegCleaner, really fast, small and reliable with multilanguages.

Yap, I will stick this to my delicious site.

There is a site that has plenty of freeware you can download and with clear grading and popularity rating.

I hardly find any virus from this site.

it is http://www.webattack.com

Try it and remember to click the freeware tab - you then can access the few thousands freeware.

My most visited site for freeware - since 1990s.

Hope you find this useful.

You can go to Portableapps.com to download your soft you need.
the_one111
Nice list there, lots of good stuff there.

Just a couple programs I noticed that I use that aren't on there:
Encryption and data security > Key Scrambler - Great program (or Firefox addon) which encrypts all keystrokes at the kernel level, so even if you have a keylogger, all the keylogger will pick are the encrypted keystrokes which can't be decoded.

HTML Editors > Notepad++
A very nice HTML (or pretty much any code, for that matter) editor with color coded syntax, as well as all those great extra features like regex mass replacements - kind of just like a super powered version of the regular Windows notepad.
jsfdan
Wow many thanks for this list. Although I already have some listed. Razz
shenyl
Yes, I can see this has generated lots of interest and people are wanting to improve that list and contribute to the list.

But we are unable to update the initial list and contribute to it.

The various web sites some have pointed out are just like this - they gather all the freeware and categories them, some even allow voting, and some even guage the number of downloads.

One site that does all these and have very clean (little of no virus) is

http://www.webattack.com

I am sure there are others.

Can we do something that can allow this initial list to grow and mature?

This will definitely benefit the popularity of Frihost.

With best regards.
shenyl
The 602 software site - does not have free Word Processor, and Print2PDF is no longer freeware.

So the list may have changed since it was first posted.

SQL Server - MS SQL 2008 Server Express Advanced edition is freeware and can be used for application development.

MS Visual Studio 2008 C#, VB, Web Development Express editions are also freeware.

Combine them, you have a pretty good development platform.

Of course Vista is not free. You can run these on XP still.

With regards.
Jamestf347

SciTE - free programming editor, (many programming languages, windows/linux), http://www.scintilla.org/SciTE.html
themarine
I used the GDATA AnitVirenKit v2004 and v2005
I tested the software on different computers. On the most computers it wasn't working correctly (nothing to do with windows version). Maybe the floppy drive was working all the time, or if there was really a virus on the computer, windows didn't start again. But if the program works it's very nice but uses many system resources.

I also used F-Prot and NAV 2005, these two are not bad but they could cause some problems on some games. They also use many system resouces.

I tryed out some other Programs but they aren't interesting.

Now I'm using the AVG Free-Edition (www.grisoft.com). This one is working very good on every PC and for free. Also very good on some older PCs because it uses just 7 MBRam and has a fast scan but is finding nearly everything.

A tip to secure your PC: Download all the Security- Windows- Updates.

And if your PC is infected by a virus which can't be deleted by your Anti- Virus- Program just use Hijackthis. I get every system running again with this tool.

Something I like is nDroid. Good to fasten up your work. Take a look. all you need to know is that it's based on AHK.
lethaltriad
wow alot of nice free apps here, definately gonna give some of them a try

I use http://www.optikvervelabs.com/ Virtual Photographer, which is a nice plugin for photoshop, only about 500kb in size but really good for photo manipulation, brighten colours and increase saturation and contrast. Only drawback is that it only supports 8bit mode so you cant use it for your 16bitt TIFF files Sad

For file extraction from zip, rar or anything other archive type extensions i use Peazip. Works just like winrar or winzip and of course its free =)

I also use Zone Alarm free home editiion version. I make my hardware firewall deal with everything else and use it for program control.

And for Antivirus protection I use Avast Home edition. All you have to do is create a license key once per year which is free to do. If I think of anymore I'll add to the list.

Subject: ImgBurn an excellent CD/DVD writing and a Partition Manager (PartitionMagic Alternative)program

ImgBurn
======
Among all the CD/DVD burning software, I liked Imgburn the most.

They always try to upgrade/update and I admire their efforts.
Moreover it is portable too.
The simplicity is their best Graphical User Interface.

You may please get it from: http://www.imgburn.com/

By the you can make iso images of your CD/DVDs too (some legal restriction may apply).

I have also made boot-able discs as well.


EASEUS Partition Manager Home Edition (PartitionMagic Alternative)
===============================================
I wondered when I found EASEUS Partition Manager 3.0 Home Edition Free Download (PartitionMagic Alternative). It worked like a charm. It is really an alternative to Partition Magic. Please read terms and conditions if you want to use for commercial purposes (as it is free for home users only, I think).

I used two times and it worked perfectly. It is not time consuming too.
Of course, it make partition of a single/C drive without loosing data within/using windows/window based GUI.

I bet you will gonna like them.

I'm recommending the Windows XP PowerToys, it has some useful and handy stuff. In particular, I like the Virtual Desktop Manager (multiple window screens like in Linux to some degree) and Tweak UI (more specific options to fully customize your computer).

So did you try.
As I am using AVG Free and I guess it might not be as good as it was.

Therefore let me know me about your experience.

OR anyone who wanna just a better free Anti-virus.

I wish that anti virus should have option to disable as AVG does not have it and I sometimes need it to check something....

Since KMPlayer has been acquired by Pandora TV it just goes down the hill, primarly because there is rarely any bugfix and doesn't maintined to the newer codecs/standards.

I think you could add Microsoft Security Essentials to List Antivirus Freeware.

Have a look at this interesting article about free and essential computer security tools.
http://securityarena.com/secure-computing/101-essential-and-free-personnel-computer-security
Interesting point on combining best features of various products and avoiding all eggs in a single basket.
simple-thought
Please keep it updated, great work.

I don't know if this has mentioned, if so I did not see it, but you might want to either add LibreOffice or replace OpenOffice with it, since a lot of the developers and whatnot from OpenOffice went over to LibreOffice and it is completely usable. Since Apache is still maintaining OpenOffice it might be best just to add it to the list. great job though. I hope this list can be kept up to date. I am just trying to do my part.
simple-thought
A link to http://filehippo.com/ would also merit an inclusion in this list. As this contains links to most used and most updated free app links.

I recommmend IMGBURN, a free image/data burning and audio/mp3 creating software. Free, small and very efficient Wink
attilax
Draftsight for CAD drawing

You should definitely add Soluto to that list. It's an application that helps monitor your PC. Not an anti-virus but an anti-stress. There's the free version for personal/individual use and then there is the paid version for IT guys. Check it out!
