    Added PhotoFiltre which is:

    Small, fast, and has a ton of nice features. I wanted something quick loading and easy to work with for doing basic crops, resizing, thumbs, shapes, text etc. but I didn't want a photo manager like ACDSee bloated into.

    I know irfanview is very popular, I didn't actually try it because it doesn't look like it has some basic editing features like adding text or shapes, which is nice to have occasionally.

    PhotoFiltre also has batch processing. I like it.

    i am using this: http://members.lycos.co.uk/codestuff/ utillity to edit my startup processes, and regestry processes, it's fast and usefull, but if you use all the tools in this sticky, it's obsolete.

    and old tool, but still pretty good: tunexp : http://www.driverheaven.net/dforce/default.php

    btw: type-o's be gone! can i blame them on a new keyboard? just getting used to it

    Starter is very nice, just installed it... will update post #1 with that one. The other one though seems to have had a long pause in development (2004?) and also requires the .net framework to be installed - . Should I include that one in the recommended list also?

    Thanks for the input d.justice.

    nah tunexp is handy for tuning certain parts of the os, like optimize xp for ramsize, speed up startup and shutdown time, but the reqirement for .net framework is a real bummer and the tweaks are a bit out dated (like pagelock limit, her the max ram you can set is 512 mb up, would rather see an update to 1024 and up) so i guess it's for the specially intrested) not worthy of a sticky

    Moveonboot, awesome little utility for removing files that sometimes seem to just get "stuck", also allows you to move or copy files that windows locks or alters. Works great, moveonboot

    Default QDS Security Toolkit

    I've been using an encryption program named QDS Security Toolkit to secure "sensitive" files. I really like the ease of use.

    The Security Toolkit is a powerful utility that allows you to create encrypted hard drives, encrypt your removable drives (USB, CD/DVD's, Firewire etc) and securely delete files, including Internet History. You can also encrypt files and send them by email.
    Link

    Looks like it is soon to be replaced by CleverCrypt, but I haven't tried that program yet.

    Added Elby's Virtual CloneDrive.

    I couldn't get Daemon Tools to install on Vista Beta 2. Virtual CloneDrive works flawlessly and boasts the following features:

    Supports all common image formats such as ISO, BIN, CCD
    Supports up to 8 virtual drives at the same time
    Easy to use - just double-click an image file to mount as a drive
    Virtual CloneDrive is freeware, you may use it at no cost.

    i just posted this link in another thread, but i think it's worth-while when doing a wipe and reload and those 'unknown' devices splat out at you

    unknown prog

    if
    you can think it
    then
    it can be done
