    Winaero Tweaker - not because it makes the PC run an better but it makes the OS look and behave the way I want it to.

    Firefox - that's a no brainer!

    WMP, VLC and Foobar - media player assortment

    Greenshot - 3rd party screen capture, a must!

    WinRAR or Free RAR EXtract Frog - compression utilities

    also, a decent office suite, (haven't settled on one)

    then there are necessities specific to ones system,

    and of course... 'toys'/games........

    I could go on........
    Now Edwin......don't break his machine! We are just getting to a clean install in his help thread.... (just kidding....)

    Nisko, Edwin is an extreme-tweaker, and he is the best at it! :)

    What office suites are you considering? I'm only aware of Libre and Microsoft Office.

    LibreOffice is an excellent free option to MSOffice.

    Good point @simrick, Winaero Tweaker should be experimented with, with care and caution! Thanks @simrick.

    I often use OpenOffice: Apache OpenOffice - Official Site - The Free and Open Productivity Suite
