1. Panda AV 2006 (best spyware & virus blocker on the planet)

2. Firefox (/w some essential plug-ins)

3. Winamp

4. EditPlus2 (my fav text editor & simple coder IDE)

5. Photoshop

6. 7-Zip (WinRar is lame)

7. Forte Agent (for Usenet, not the best app, I'm just use to it)

8. SpyBot (just as a double check, but Panda has always caught everything so far)

9. Visual Studio 2005 (hey I'm a developer!)

10. Nero (it's bloatware but still the best burner)

11. EggTimer (keep track of time on a given task)

I also have some custom reg files I use, one is a series of tweaks, the other is my IE search shortcuts (ex: by typing in the IE address bar "wiki blah" I search the WikiPedia for 'blah', I have made dozens of similar ones).

When I work on other peoples computers I try to get them to let me install either Windows XP Pro or Ubuntu (Linux) (I don't install Windows XP home on any computer its just bad for business) Then I do the basics like Winzip and Firefox and of course Spybot S&D.
