I have one to add.. For a long time I used Picture Viewers like in Rainmeter.. and for Windows... many of them took up quite a bit to simple display images on your desktop.. such as a selection of art.. or a personal collection ... I tried using 'Fast Preview' yet some elements do not work and will not work for Windows 7.. so along with have a context menu thumbnail viewer ( CFi Shell Toys though I loved the function of Fast Preview before I upgraded to Win7U - helpful if you want to avoid creating thumbnails.. ) ...

I have found a little program.. standalone and even portable.. controllable with Hotkey.. :rolleyes: called 'ArtSage' by Xworks.. MANY features and very useful.. want to know more? download it and see.. takes just a few seconds..

SlimCleaner is the most indepth and safe cloud based file cleaner I have ever found.

SPlayer is the best video player.

Trillian is bar far the lightest I.M./POP3 mail checker.

Total Uninstall cleans all remnants of programs, including the appdata files which others miss.

UltimateDefrag for complete control & configuration of my high performance defrag scenario.

Faststone Capture is the lightest screen capture program to date.

Faststone Maxview for full screen image viewing, is the lightest.

r2studios StartUp Delayer for delayed start up of non essential software and the ability to restart and "pause" the start up of programs, to play games or install programs, then resume! Oldtimer told me about this from back in the day.

@muhib: I advice you to remove FormatFactory and re-install K-Lite Codec Pack as formatfactory will install the same codecs again, register them to the system and will screw you K-Lite settings. Personal experience. Also, FormatFactory doesn't convert to a good quality. I recommend Xilisoft Ultimate Video Converter or Mediacoder (a bit advanced) over FormatFactory.

but format factory 2.6 asks whether to install codec iside system or not. besides it has a very user friendly interface

Yes but when converting, it asks you to register them otherwise you cannot continue with the conversion. :(

But yes, the interface is user friendly. :)
