Just about every power user or computer enthusiast has a set of utilities they use to make their life easier. I have posted several of the ones I use frequently as previous tips. So if you are looking for more programs to add to your list then a post you should take a look at is Scott Hanselman’s 2009 Ultimate Developer and Power Users Tool List for Windows.
The list is broken down into several categories and covers a vast array of utilities, most of which are freely available. I actually use several of the ones he has listed. Also, be sure to check out the user comments as several readers posted suggestions of their own.
