This is a list of free programs i think are worth recommending.
I did not bother trying to rate or compare them (some i use more than others)
They are in no specific order and the formatting should be obvious.
Also i only listed programs that do NOT offer a paid version etc.
For example CCleaner has versions that cost money so i did not list it.
I tried to keep the overclocking and hardware tools to a minimum (there is too many)
The cpu arch in brackets is to state what version i use and if a 64bit version
is available there is *almost always a 32bit version available.
I want to see if I get any feedback before I think about doing a shareware version.
I think it would be a good way to give and receive some new ideas for programs.

Comments / contributions are welcome.. is there a must have free only program i missed ?

Firefox (x86) - http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/fx/
- Web Browser.
My favorite free program of all. Grease monkey scripting has made the web better for me.

Chrome (x86) - http://www.google.com/chrome
- Web Browser.
I only use this *rarely for surfing non english sites (for autotranslate functionality)

uTorrent v2 (x86) - http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/7001277/uTorrent_v2.2.1.25302_-_DHT_Patched_CUE
- Torrent client. (with DHT patch)
Last v2 client before controversial major changes. Fast and no bloat !

xpMule (x64 only publicly) - http://thepiratebay.se/torrent/7290208/xpMule_%28eMule_Leecher_Mod%29_0.50a_64bit_Only
- P2P File sharing program.
ed2k / kad based client. Goal is to improve the GUI and add some features.

Notepad2 (x64) - http://www.flos-freeware.ch/notepad2.html
- Text Editor.
Simple yet has just the right amount of extras and fast.

TestDisk (x64) - http://www.cgsecurity.org/wiki/TestDisk
- Hard Drive partition repair.
Very advanced and powerful GUI / console program.

Avidemux (x64) - http://avidemux.sourceforge.net/

Good GUI layout, filters, features and scripting. For example converting an .mkv video to an .avi video.

MKVextractGUI (x64) - http://sourceforge.net/projects/mkvextractgui-2/
- Video encoding.
Mkvtoolnix GUI for building mkv containers.

Process Explorer (x64) - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653

The standard for Mp3's (i use this in DBPowerAmp)
