    Default PC Freeware Applications - what do you use?

    Following on from another thread I was wondering what freeware applications people use that others may find useful.

    I will start:

    http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk

    For retrieving accidentally deleted files and photos - Came in handy when the youngster formatted the memory card in the camera before I had removed the photos.

    Yes, Zone Alarm, just missed that one!

    I have used both AVG 7 and AVG 8
    They have both failed to pickup several test viruses
    Even during normal use, again failed to pick up most trojans and viruses
    avast! picked them all up
