I don't see the point of that when OS X / Windows / Linux all have Filesharing built in standard.

And no other needed programs.

OS X can also enable remote Desktop, Filesharing, Websharing, Personal WebSharing, FTP, SSH Access etc too, all Standard.

Softperfect Firewall
http://www.softperfect.com/products/firewall/

It's free, small, doesn't look pretty, but does the job.

It's a very manual Firewall, but that means less problems when configured right, block EVERYTHING then open ports as you need them.

You can find all ports either on Google for your programs, or you can just watch your logs for denied ones.

But I do recommend a hardware firewall that you get in Routers,and if your on Dialup, you don't really need one.

Just found this little bugger after using a similar program to do the same thing, but this is sooo much sweeter..
http://www.octopod.org/mambo/index.p...=77&Itemid=136
it is called process master, and it allows you to set 'rules' for which processes run at what priority you want the to. a very useful tool.. and open sourced.. i highly recommend you try it out.

DelinvFile

http://www.purgeie.com/delinv/

Deletes files/folders with invalid names etc. It was the only program that allowed me to delete on the spot the annoying Securom files in the Application Data folder, which both Hijack this and Pocket Killbox failed to do.


PowerMenu

http://www.veridicus.com/tummy/programming/powermenu/

Adds a "minimise to tray" button on your right click for any application that is taking space on your task bar, also allows for change in degrees of transparency and priority.


RegWatcher

http://www.jacobsm.com/mjsoft.htm

Great little up that keeps an eye on the most important registry keys, u can add any value u like to be monitored and it gives u a popup alert with an option to accept a change or reject it, it also does a live check every few minutes or so. Small footprint too.

Few great (freeware) programs are missing...

Abakt - http://www.xs4all.nl/~edienske/abakt/
ATI Tray Tools - http://www.guru3d.com/atitraytools/
AutoGK - http://www.autogk.me.uk/
Disk Explorer Professional - http://www.tjelinek.com/
DVB Dream - http://www.dvbdream.org/
freeCommander - http://www.freecommander.com/
HotkeyP - http://web.quick.cz/lastp/others.html#hotkey
MV2 Player - http://mv2.czweb.org/
Skype - http://www.skype.com/

And this one (but it's charityware):

PTBSync - http://www.netcult.ch/elmue/ElmueSoft-en.htm

More information about most of these programs you can find also here, try to search for "Freeware", user "Dreamer8".

Other programs are:

Abakt - backup tool
ATI Tray Tools - it's also on this forum but it's missing in the list
AutoGK - DVD/MPG/MPG2 to DivX/Xvid conversion (the only one that works good with my DVB records)
MV2 Player - Audio/Video/DVD player

This is not the truth anymore, someone has deleted those topics, without warning, don't know why, I just wanted to help, if someone - also here - needs some program, he could try to search and he could find information he needed.

You could say it was advertising, but it was just basic information about FREEWARE programs I like. And - what is this list then?!? What about posts above - also with links to homepage and description??

It is pointless making multiple threads to programs that are already mostly in this sticky.

It clutters up the forums, and is regarded as spam.

Please keep good, free or opensource programs in this thread.

Total Annihilation remake, pretty good actually and theres lots of addons for it.
Online I think most servers use 'Absolute Annihilation', just improves on the original (addon doesn't work with bots well).

A free AC3 filter so you can get surround sound from your speaker setup even if your dvd/video players don't decode multichannel audio.

Ive noticed that most free dvd codecs seem to only do stereo audio, but this audio filter "fixes" that.
