Default Your favorite freeware

Many of us have probably tried our share of freeware. I bet you've ended up keeping a few. Which freeware apps do you now find indispensible?

For me, I would put Hotkeyz and CloseAll on the list. Also I keep VLC Media Player. Can't think of any others at the moment.

Irfanview without a doubt. Probably the most flexible image viewer and basic editor out there.

ieSpell is on all my computers. Only problem I have with it is remembering to use it.

I'm starting to like Gimp. Lots of editing power and it's free.

I like Photoscape, very user friendly, with lots of bells and whistles

MirriM backup software. I have been using it for years. Very fast and powerful yet simple to use.

Firefox, GIMP, RAWTherapee, FSCapture (screen captures made easy) , FSResizer (resize photos in a fast way), VirtualDub (basic video editing), Audacity (audio editor), EAC (audio grabber), Foobar2000 (audio player), AviSynth (video editor / frame server), IMGBurn (CD / DVD burning program), VLC (media player), Avast (anti virus), Comodo (firewall), Super anti spyware, Irfanview (image viewer). I use those on a weekly basis, most of them more often than that. I wouldn't want to be without them.

Irfanview again. It may be limited, but what it can do it does faster than anything else. Those hotkeys sure beat chasing menues with a mouse.
