Hmm, looks pretty sweet ... I'm going to need to give that a try on some of our demos to see how well it works (no way I'm trying it on a customer computer first; not that I don't trust you :P)

Here are a couple I'm fond of...

Jajuk - music player
Glary Utilities - a system 'fixer' but I like file shredder and other 'cleaning' options

Not sure how long it's been since somebody posted the link to this must have app..... :)

Download and run the Norton Removal Tool

Use this to completely delete that time limited "free" norton app that came with your new computer.

Funny little app that creates bleeping sounds usually seen in tech thriller movies when someone working on computer, reacts to user input and CPU activity, it was made in 2002 but still works in Windows 7:
