    One of my favourites is just a modest little utility Microsoft published in 1996....

    Microsoft GIF Animator - Wikipedia

    ...first used it in W'95, still works in x64 W10

    I bet nobody has heard of ArcSoft’s PhotoStudio 2000. I got if free with a Canon scanner at the turn of the millennium and I’m still using it 20 years later.

    And Dynamic Theme.

    I start my clean installs with PatchMyPC lately. Then select my 15 to 20 programs like Treesize free, 7-zip etc. Always direct from developer, and versions without any third party PUPs

    Yandex browser - I found this little gem by a chance, its market share outside Russia is nonexistent.

    Always interested in what people have found, and could be used by others.
    For me, the best ever program (which has got me out of many a foolish move) has got to be Macrium. The times I have done something very silly and major happens from time to time. Good old Macrium has been an absolute life saver.
    What do other recommend?
    C

    Fully agree about Macrium.

    Ja, ja, I know this is tenforums.com -- however, I could not resist...
    Believe it or not, I recently took a chance on Auslogics Driver Updater, and it actually worked for my two laptops. I was in the midst of numerous WUs, some of which "told" me I had to update some driver here, there, etc. After it made the backups, it updated what it found -- and so far, I detect no trouble with Windows7. Normally, I do not use driver updaters. Now onto more installs: Macrium Reflect, Image for Windows; Cyberlink products; TeraCopy...and so on.

    Microsoft SyncToy x64. Pushing 11 years old, but a simple, fast, reliable folder/file backup/sync app that does one thing and does it well.
