    Lets list a couple of must-have programs! List only the ones which you absolutely need, ones which stand out from the crowd. Also give a brief description of each Btw don't list NAV, Nero and the like!
    Here goes mine---
    1. Hare (Doubles the speed of your pc.... well, almost
    2. Start Button killer (Use this program to gain some precious space on your taskbar, www.tsoftcentral.com/startkiller/ )
    3. ShellToys XP (38 Context menu extensions)
    4. NewzCrawler 1.7 (Get news from around the world in seconds)
    5. Alcohol 120% (Mounts any type of image easily)
    6. Tweak-XP 3
    7. True Launch Bar (Better than XP's quicklaunch)

    Enjoy!

    Re: Hare ?

    I've been using it for about 4 months, and trust me....it does speed up things. But not to 202% as quoted by them. Probably around 25%. I'm talking loading times of apps. Not games.
