Default What are your must have programs...

I'm wondering what programs everybody has in general. No need to put spyware, av programs etc in here. Just disk burning tools, editing programs, utilities etc.

Some of my must haves include...

iTunes
Everest Ultimate Edition
Nero

blah blah

Cheers guys.
