    i know there have been threads like this before, but, i dont think there has been one on none security apps. it would be a great help for everyone, and especially people like me whom are fairly knew to computers (only 6/7 months or so, and maybe missing out on some great none security programs e.g how to watch TV using my computer. so i pleaed with you, only put down programs that arent normally mentioned in security forums, and stay on topic, and try to add programs we may not know, otherwise theres no point.

    thank you :)

    here are mine, as im a newbie you'll probably know them, so sorry
    Rainlendar

    Rainlendar is a customizable calendar that displays the current month. It is a very lightweight application that doesn't use much system resources or take much space on your desktop.

    Rainlendar skins here

    Winamp 2.91
    it's new to me, but so far the sound is great and its easy to use, 1000's of preprogramed radio stations and skinable. just be careful when downloading plugins, dont download any Wild Tangent, its spyware

    Truck Dismount
    a game that i think none game players will like, it's a none-install and just sits in a folder, download and give it a go

    sorry one more...
    EditPad Lite, a brilliant notepad replacement

    please add to this thread, and try to make your programs ones we may not know, that way we will all get something from it :)

    Hi iceni60! :)

    Here are three freewares I like:

    Pixia. A very light graphic program. When I want to draw fast I use that program for it is very convenient.After you finish the installation of the program, you can add Photoshop filters in it. But you cannot use the program for creating animations.

    pixia

    For creating SF landscapes, I use Terragen.

    terragen

    I like to use Mozilla Firefox as a browser it's secure and quite convenient!

    mozilla

    *I like the Gimp too!*

    I'd be hard-pressed to come up with just three, but these three were the first to come to mind.

    1. I've got an antique copy of DBase for Windows that I picked up second- (or "x-many"-)hand at a local shop. I worked on DBase at work for many years, and was pleasantly surprised to find how much of it is still almost second nature to me.

    This one was written for Win 3.1 but runs quite happily under XP without even have to touch compatibility settings. Even its debugger, which recognized and refused to run under 98SE, is happy with XP.

    Sorry no link -- these days I think it's from Borland, if they're still around, and quite expensive new (several hundred $).

    2. Graphics Workshop Pro -- recognizes just about every graphics format under the sun, and is dandy for converting between formats, resizing, and they keep adding new "filters" every time you blink. Not geared for actual painting, but it'll neatly save a temp copy of whetever. open Paint (or whatever) to work on that, then convert the result back to whatever format you started with. $45 US, but they're very liberal about "evaluation" period. http://www.mindworkshop.com/alchemy/gww.html

    3. And TClockEx, a freebie which gives you a huge range of display options for your system clock. http://www.rcis.co.za/dale/tclockex/index.htm

    Oops from me too -- and sorry for my supposed contributions. I missed the "freeware" part of the thread title, and it wasn't mentioned in postings till quite recently.
