You have not written any free "video streamer" software to watch direct movies from the net for low band internet connectivity. I use currently free software "speedbit video accelator 3.1.3.3 " made by "speedbit" at "http://speedbit.com" but it is very hard to use so can you guide any user-friendly another free software for this purpose

OpenOffice.org has word compatibility as well as PDF Conversion... Alternatively, there are plenty of free PDF printers like Bullzip, CutePDF, etc which can convert any document that can be printed into a PDF file...

1. Mozilla Firefox/Opera (web browser)
2. ImgBurn/Infra Recorder (CD/ DVD writing)
3. Don't use any desktop search
4. Virtual Clone Drive (virtual CD /DVD image run)
5. CCleaner (system maintainance and cleaning)
6. Foxit Reader (pdf viewer) Foxit goofs up sometimes, so I keep Adobe Reader around too.
7. 7zip is the best (Compressor/Extractor)

10. Never encrypt any data as nobody else touches my pc. :D
11. Super/Any/Total (All in one video, audio converter)
12. The KMPlayer ( all in one media player)

Also, in case some games lag/hang in my PC, I use IOBit Gamebooster, which closes all unnecessary apps to focus all PC resources on the game! :)
