Notetab - The greatest PC editor IMHO
BSPlayer - A great video player - You will need to look for an old version because the newest one includes ad-ware.
Delete Invalid File - Great program for deleting those files that Windows won't
Show Traffic - Great software to see if you have something eating your bandwidth

I would like to pass along a Firefox add-on that my brother showed me recently.

CoolIris Previews (link) is an add-on to Firefox that basically gives a preview of a link on a web page when you hover over it. When you do, a small preview window within the same browser will open up.

You can essentially multi-table 2p2 with this add-on. The add-on also creates a small "Stack" tab on the right side of your browser. This collapsible tab allows you to save previews of links on the right side of the browser window, so you can go back and visit those links in a small preview window (or you can stay up to date with your current favorite thread).

want to open paint? alt-spacebar, type 'pa', and hit enter.

want to open notepad? alt-spacebar, type 'no', and hit enter.

want to calculate 467823 * 463? alt-spacebar, enter the expression and it's calculated inline.

it indexes your start menu by default, but you can make it do other things. i added my documents to its directory list and pdf as a filetype. now if i want to pull up my nutritional data pdf from subway i hit alt-spacebar, type 'sub', and hit enter. this will work for any type of file that can be executed/opened: word documents, excel spreadsheets, etc. it can also index ie and firefox bookmarks.

There are 3 different versions of Quicken Personal, so I don't even know which one to start with. Even the most basic one seems to have a bunch of unnecessary stuff though, like ways to pay your bills. I really don't want to link up my bank accounts to other programs.

I have Quicken 2004, and I use it only as a basic checkbook register, albeit for four different accounts--three of which I have since closed but were on earlier versions of Quicken that carried over.

FWIW, even the Geico cavemen could quikly master Quicken's basic checkbook register functions.

Yes Quicken is very good. I've used it ever since I got my first Windows machine in the early 90's, which came with Quicken preinstalled. I haven't kept a check register in about 15 years.

Just get the most basic version. The online bill paying and account linking stuff is all optional. The only thing I use that for is to import my Interactive Brokers statements. It's good at tax time because I can just print a report with all my trades, cost bases, and profit and loss in the same format it needs to be on my tax forms.

quick question...is there a program that can handle bank accounts/ms money type stuff in different countries? I am a dual citizen and most of my poker money is in the states but most of my daily stuff is in Canada.

Has anyone noticed that .wmvs seem to not be playing in MPC or VLC now? I've had so many problems with this lately!
