    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.
