Default Tools thread

Post some tools that makes your life easier using the computer.
Here are 2 very useful tools I use.

Foldersize:
A very good program to see where you use the most space on your harddrive.
You get a diagram over folders so you can easily find the folders that takes up too much space. It also has a rightclick menu shortcut.
So you can click on a folder in explore and check out the directory beneath it. very handy.

Here is an image



Aren't you tired of those files you need to give yourself permission to before you can rename or delete it?
in that case unlocker is for you.
Simply rightclick on the file and choose "unlock". You then gain full control rights over the file. No need to go to permissions and gain ownership before you can delete a file.

Here is a link: Download Unlocker 1.9.2 - FileHippo.com


Other then those tools i don't really use anything out of the ordinary.
I use photoshop for photo editing, WinRar for decompressing files and deamon tools for mounting images.

Don't think that thread applies, this is just tools, doesn't look like this has any "free" requirement

That's right.
It doesn't have to be free.
Also it must be software that can be categorized as tools

Most of my toolkit is made up of virus removal tools. I haven't used them yet, I've just stared putting this together. These seem like the ones to use though.

On a USB I have:
CCleaner
Malwarebytes Anti-Malware
Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit
Complete Internet Repair
Disable/Enable Autorun
Driver Magician
ESet Rouge App Remover
