Any sort of LiveCD program is badass.

This is one of my favorite Windows programs. Makes life on Windows just a little bit easier

Just hold down the alt key and left click anywhere in a window to move the window, or right click near the edges to resize. So if you right click at the to or bottom towards the middle, you'll be able to drag and resize vertically. Same on the left or right sides to resize horizontally. Click near the corner to resize diagonally.

It's a shame this functionality isn't built into the window manager, as it should be.

The original post is a little (okay, a lot) stale at this point...but many of the programs are still useful and/or still developed.

Glad I visited this sub forum.  I had forgotten about OpenOffice...loaded on kid's laptop and notepad.

No freeloading so here is my contribution

Yeah, I know most systems come with MovieMaker, but the versions I have seen are all over the board.  Some you can take snap shots, some you can't.  No free plugins either. You can add [free]  plugins to NCH.  I have one for RGB adjustment.   Email me if you want the plugin as I cannot find link.

OpenOffice is good, but it has since forked, the modern equivalent is http://www.libreoffice.org/ .

Thanks.

Yes, I just discovered this after looking more into it.  I installed Ubuntu last on my kids problem child laptop (Vista) and wow. I am impressed.  Still testing it out.  Might make the switch on my one system.

Great software.

Might be nice if it were to update, since I couldn't run some of the programs due to the 64 bit system on Windows 7.

Thanks KS  for your help in providing the thread!

What's the word on anti-virus here in 2013?  McKafee is about to run out.

Microsoft Security Essentials, its pretty good and its free. Make sure when you remove McAfee you run the removal tool afterwards, McAfee likes to leave bits of itself behind.

I use it to get tool bars on both monitors.







Lately I use the hell out of Bulk  Image Resize Manager and PDF Split & Merge 2.24.

Move Mouse



Jiggles the mouse or send a keystroke every 30 seconds as a keep-alive. Easily configurable.




Great for keeping my MS Lync session from showing me as inactive
