I havn't been looking around for TuneUp programs in awhile, and I'm wondering which ones everyone uses now of days.
Currently, here's what I've been using for quite awhile:
File Cleanup: CCleaner (latest version)
Registry Cleanup: TuneUp Ultilities 2006 (close to the latest, but I've got a pirated version, so I don't want to risk an update that shuts it down)
Defrag: Diskeeper 10 (latest version. I have a feeling this program will be the top dawg for awhile.)
Spyware: AdAware and SpyBot S&D (latest versions. I have a feeling theres a better one though.)
Web Browser: Both Firefox and Avant Browser. (I got Avant recently, and it's awesome! Avant and Firefox have their advantages over each other, so I use em both. Firefox still has the best "Ad" and "Pop-up" blocking.)
Email: Mozilla Thunderbird (latest version...filters 98% of my spam emails...woot wooT!)
Media Player: Winamp (Can't tell you how nice the Media Library is. I have a perfectly organized selection of over 4,000 mp3s. It's also got "Free TV Channles"...heh, free broadcast porn too. )
Documents/Office: OpenOffice (latest version. I believe Microsoft OfficeXP loads faster, but I'm too lazy to download that. OpenOffice comes with a great bundle of software.)
P2P: Emule & Emule F-Mod (F-Mod has some advantages, but it still lacks a working "video screenshot preview", which Emule, on the other hand, has. It's where you browse someone's list of files, then request screenshots from a video file you havn't downloaded yet. This feature hasn't been implemented into the actual search results yet, but it will someday)
Torrent: uTorrent (Compact, yet Very Powerful. nuff said)
Music Ripping: Easy CD-DA Extractor (Easy to use, Works Great!)
Burning: Nero 7 and 6 (I have a copy of v6 too, because v7 doesn't allow me to preview audio files to burn onto an AudioCD. This is vital and v7 has a major glitch which lacks the function. I can't seem to update it either, because Nero changed the Serial System in the latest version.
Video, Audio, and Image editing: All Adobe Apps. Premiere, AfterEffects, PhotoshopCS, and Audition. They can all import each other's unique formats too...Premiere accepts .ps files, etc etc)
Post some other peices of "top-dawg" software for other needs or suggest any "better" programs than the ones I'm already using now.
