I've been using this for ~8 years.. one of those programs which i'm ready to pay for, but it's free

doesn't matter what you do on your computer.. we all have photos and graphics on our drives, so i'd say this is a must have for everyone.
the only decent alternative is ACDSee, but it's not even close to XnView's simplicity and usability.

<!--QuoteEBegin-->Come to discover XnView, a software to view and convert graphic files, really simple to use! Support of more than 400 graphics formats! It's free, so do not hesitate!

Ashampoo Win Optimizer 11 screenshot
the tuning specialist for your PC.
We all like fast and secure computers, but only constant system maintenance and time-consuming optimizations will keep them that way. Those of us who like to invest time and effort to keep up with the latest developments may very well handle those tasks using default Windows tools alone. As system experts, they love to accelerate their machines, protect their privacy, clean and backup system files, fix common Windows errors any perform many other tasks. This not only sounds like a lot of work, it is!

Process Explorer screenshot
this will be the first post in my section sys.tools, where i shall share "must have" appz for managing your Windows.
because unfortunately, that where most of us stuck...

Process Explorer is a replacement for your standard Task Manager, was developed by Sysinternals a long time ago, and later bought by Microsoft.
since then, everybody who used Process Explorer wondered why Microsoft wouldn't just replace their Task Manager with this one...
anyway, i would say it is a must have.
