Post in this thread software you find very useful. Preferably only post free software, but you are allowed to post commercial software as well. Here's what I recommend:

Do Not Track - this stops advertising companies to see what sites you visit

Download (works on all browsers)

AdBlock - this makes sure no advertisements are displayed on any webpage

Download for Chrome
Download for Firefox

VLC Media Player - the only media player you need, as it can play almost ALL video/audio codecs (formats), and it's free

Download

Daemon's Tools - my favourite virtual drive, easy, and works beautifully

Download

Ccleaner - useful for editing your registry and clearing space

Download

LockCD - haven't used myself, but it looks very useful, it locks your CD/DVD drive, so it doesn't eject when hit on accident

Download

Audacity - a free, open-source tool for recording and editing sounds

However, if you wish to export your sound as an MP3, read this first.

Universal Theme Patcher - if you wish to install 3rd party themes on Windwos Vista and 7, then you have to download this, I've used it myself, and haven't had any issues

Download

When downloading themes, be sure to download the correct versions (32-bit or 64-bit), or else Windows Explorer may not work.

Malwarebytes - a free and very good anti-virus, it has a clear interface, and helps block potentially malicious connections

However, for Malwarebytes, you can upgrade it for better protection for a fee. PM me if you don't feel like paying that fee..........

VMware Player. This is a free ripped version of VMware Workstation, a tool that allows you to virtualize other OS's on your current one. What makes it different about VirtualBox or VirtualPC, is VMware Player doesn't emulate hardware, it works with your current hardware.

It also features a nice tool called Unity. This will merge items on your Guest OS taskbar with your Host to make it look like you're not virtualizing at all.
Right now, I still believe this tool could be made better. For example, it could put the icon to the tray and it could also merge Guest Desktop with the Host or even allow you to start the Guest OS on startup. Kind of like how XP Mode works in 7.

Here is the page link, though I reccomend you look for it elsewhere on the net, last time I tried, I had to fill out a survey which I couldn't even complete.

VMware Player

Does it really matter who heard it from who? Are we seriously debating that? And CamStudio sucks. It has never worked right for me. So I'll go ahead and recommend Tipcam. It's a recording device that works, at least for me. I like it.

The more you sharpen them, the better they cut...
When someone would rather leave than deal with you, then you know that you're unwanted. Life is too short to spend time in a place where you're unwanted. If your friends always criticize you, anger you, and depress you, they're not really your friends. You shouldn't have to change yourself for anyone. Don't deal with the abusive relationship anymore, the denial that it will happen again. Even if they apologize, they'll get angry again and take it out on you. There comes a point where you must move on. Find people who will accept you for who you are, and those will be your friends.

I've never found recording software that TRULY worked, they've all has problems. Apart from Fraps, but that can only record games.
