Ok I noted Ifranview is not here...

IrfanView is a very fast, small, compact and innovative FREEWARE (for non-commercial use) graphic viewer for Windows 9x/ME/NT/2000/XP/2003/Vista.

I know Ifranview is very popular and lots of people like it but I have tried it several times and I just can not wrap my head around the UI. Here is another free alternative:

Free graphic and photo viewer - XnView - GRAPHIC VIEWER

Okay for just about anything you ever wanted to know about your system info, hardware etc, I have been using this for years:

|MG| EVEREST Free Edition 2.20

CPU-z can provide info on your CPU and RAM specs:

|MG| CPU-Z 1.46

Ever wondered what all the processors running are, well this app extends the task manager significantly and allows right click "googling" of any background process:

|MG| Process Explorer 11.20

Most have heard off and used memtest86+ but here is a Windows based memory tester:

MemTest: RAM reliability tester for Windows

A temp/volt monitoring app that generates min/avg/max for any bench runs:

|MG| HWMonitor 1.1.0

I didn't notice any backup software! You are a brave lot of OC'ers out there

AceBackup: The free Backup Software

Works very well. I have not tried any scheduling with it but I set up a back up and then run it manual and it does an incremental of new files only.

Recommended!

Heh....

Not brave, I just don't leave anything on my computer I can't afford to lose. Only takes a couple of hours to reload everything if required. :)

It's been years (maybe even a decade) since I used Arachnophila for coding HTML, and I haven't tried this version, but it was a decent freeware app back in the day so it deserves a mention......

* Arachnophilia

For those who've used it in the past, apparently it's now a java app, so it will work across all platforms.

Been a while since I needed to use it, but if you've got a friend/relative who either insists on purchasing a big-box build, or just has an itchy "accept" mouse button PC Decrapifier can come in quite handy......
