Many thanks Xinok for keeping this alive. A single complaint:

Pls remove Open Freely --> File Management -> Viewers, because IMO is just a scam. The software is similar to Free Opener and (maybe) owned by the same company. Remember all the buzz about Free Opener on freewaregenius, lifehacker etc...? Well, at the begining Free Opener installer was around 20.4 MB now is 1.5 MB and there's a reason. Now is a web installer ''powered'' by InstallIQ , an adware provider. Moreover it seems that same same company produces the same program under different name but all with the same purpose: money from InstallIQ.

Just check this out:

FreeOpener 1.0.1.0

http://www.freeopener.com/

Free File Opener 2011

http://www.freefileopener.com/

Free File Viewer 2011

http://www.freefileviewer.com/

Ultimate File Viewer

http://www.ultimatefileviewer.com/

The same software under different theme and using different names. After doing some research I found that the company behind all this poorly coded stuff is Bitberry Software ApS owner of Trusted Software a website that rips-off Open Source software like GIMP, VideoLan than bundle it with InstallIQ.

Thanks for pointing this out. I took a better look and besides for being highly suspicious, their software (presumably illegally) bundles other programs as well as install a certain codec pack... So I removed Open Freely as well as Free Opener (it was also on the list).

I think two new addition should be added to the list. These two, simple, elegant, lightweight, powerful, are the best in my opinion. Not only as a freeware, but also within commercial category.

Bandizip - http://www.bandicam.com/bandizip/

Yes there are TONS of Archivers out there, but they are either very light weight and ugly ( 7 zip ), powerful but heavy ( Power Archivers type.) Bandizip offers many features while being quite lightweight. It is also one of the best if not the best at extracting Unicode filename archives.

KingSoft Office Free - http://www.kingsofts...suite-free.html

Yes i get it from the back page news. Most neowinians hate Chinese. The same for Chinese Software as well. But other then that it is possibly the best Office Suit you can get ( free or paid ) if you dont like Ribbon UI.

Can i suggest two free softwares i use daily.

Search Everything: locate files and folders by name instantly, a lot faster then windows search.

Kingsoft PC Doctor: maybe a windows tweaking tool, i've no idea which category it should be in since it also get malware removal features, reviews from wilderssecurity are pretty good, worth a try.

I don't know if this was answered before or not, but is Adobe Reader free for business use? Not redistribution, just regular use on company pc's. If it is, can someone please point me to the "proof", because I don't see anything about this in that stupid eula... Thank you. :)

1-4a Rename

http://www.1-4a.com/rename/

A mass file renamer. I used this religiously until I discovered ReNamer, which I found much easier to use, but 1-4a is still one of my favourites. It's a standalone program (i.e. no installation required) and the entirety of the functionality/interface is contained on one large screen.

AHK BBCodeWriter

http://www.autohotke...page/index.html

This program allows you to type up BBCode forum posts offline with the ability to preview them as they'd appear online, including emoticons.

Android Sync Manager WiFi

http://global.mobile...oad/android.jsp

Along with the corresponding (free) app on your Android device this program allows you to sync your device with your PC over the WiFi connection.

AVIAddXSubs

http://aviaddxsubs.blogspot.com/

Takes .srt subtitles and adds them to the AVI container (i.e. the video is not re-encoded). It converts the original .srt into XSub or idx/sub formats, depending on your needs.

Convert AVI to MP4

http://www.convertavitomp4.com/

A basic yet extremely useful tool for doing the obvious. It only allows you to convert one file at a time, and there's no control over the internal settings of the program, but it works perfectly. I've found that the converted file almost always plays on the PS3 whereas the converted MP4 files from other software don't.

FileASSASSIN

http://www.malwareby...ts/fileassassin

This program comes bundled with Malwarebytes' Anti-malware, but it's also available as a separate program. It's a file unlocker/deleter.

Applian FLV Player

http://applian.com/flvplayer/

Self-explanatory! The only thing I should mention is that after installation the final part of the setup wizard asks if you want to install Freecoder Toolbar, and the option is ticked automatically, so don't be too hasty as you click through.

GASHISOFT GXSCC

http://www.geocities...B236/indexE.htm

A MIDI/SMF/RCP player which emulates the sound of 8-bit audio similar to that of the old games consoles and chiptunes.

Mega Manager

http://www.megaupload.com/?c=tools

For users of MegaUpload.com with either a free or premium account, it allows you to upload and download to/from the website and manage various aspects of the process.

Net Transport (Free)

http://freeware4revi...on-of-fast.html

This is a download manager much like the plethora of others out there, but this one can handle RTSP protocols which means downloading streaming media is possible. The link provided is to the last free version of the program (it's now paid) and the download link provided on the page is to a file hosting service. I'm not sure if this is permitted, but it's there if you want it.

NoSleep HD

http://nosleephd.codeplex.com/

A tiny standalone program which prevents your external hard drives from sleeping by simply writing to a text file on each selected drive at the time intervals you require.

ORCA MSI Editor

http://www.technipag...msi-editor.html

Allows you to edit .msi installation packages. It is no longer officially supported by Microsoft but it still works fine. If you have PC DVD backups and wish to split them into CDs, or vice versa, you'll most likely need this program along the way.

Pastebin

http://pastebin.com/tools#windows

Upload pasted text from your PC to the Pastebin website and control how it will be presented. It requires you to have a free login account to be used. It's also available for many other OSs and even comes in the form of browser extensions/add-ons.

Wim's World Clock

http://www.wimsprogr...m/programs.html

Displays multiple time zones of your choosing from a System Tray icon. It can be hovered over to show a tooltip or can be clicked to show a configurable window displaying the times/dates. It optionally syncs itself with a selection of government time websites.

XdN Tweaker

http://xenomorph.net.../vb/xdntweaker/

Allows you to tweak various aspects of Windows. Works with XP > Windows 7.

I'm not sure if it's just me but the dashes between the category numbers in the Table of Contents are somehow a different character than the dashes used throughout the rest of the thread, making it tricky to use Ctrl+F to find anything. It hasn't always been this way, which is the weird part! Does anyone else have this problem?

BlueStacks

http://bluestacks.com/

Essentially an Android emulator for Windows. It's still in BETA stages but it works quite well with most apps already (as of today I've personally tested it with Words with Friends, Hanging with Friends, Android Market and Get Jar!).

ChromePlus is now called CoolNovo

http://coolnovo.com/

Comodo Dragon Browser

http://www.comodo.co...ars/browser.php

A free browser based on Chromium with extra emphasis on privacy and security.

CDisplayEx

http://www.cdisplayex.com/

A comic book reader which I personally find much easier to use than ComicRack.

Spider Player is now discontinued and as a result the developer is now offering the Pro license for free.

You can recover the lost pictures with data recovery software. I've tried iDisksoft Data Recovery, the deep recovery mode is powerful and helped me recover files. Free to download it from http://www.idisksoft.com

SPAM. Your software is ''free to download'' and not FREEWARE.

Might as well be interested in CamStudio, been using it for a while and works like a charm except that it generates relatively bigger in size video files.
