I'd add Private Firewall and Super to the list but still, this is one hell of a list so I wanted to share:

Categorized List of Best Windows Software




I found the link through Alan Zisman's site.

I was expecting to disagree with the list. Surprised I agree with many of those choices and have many installed.

*Note: You only need one from each category. Please no one install ALL that stuff!

Good point.

Thanks. I used to keep a list like this somewhere but updating it was a hassle.
If you visit Alan's own web page (link at the bottom of my original post), he has links to Mac software but since I don't use Mac, I am not sure how to rate it.
