Most used utility

  Joe R 20:20 10 Mar 2007

I have been using a P.C. for around a decade or so now, and was wondering what must be the most used program/utility, since my "addiction".

I was sitting trying to figure it out, and opened notepad, to jot down any ramblings, when it dawned on me, that it was notepad itself. I have been using it almost every day for years, for all sorts of text editing, copying and pasting etc.

What does everyone else find as useful.?

Everest or Belarc at work.
Netmeter at home

My favorite is Quickpad (freeware), a sort of notepad on steroids, it has loads of features, but I like it because you can make a note and close it and it auto saves.

Surely windows would be the most used.

What about the browser you're using now?

My firewall, it's on constantly as the pc is on 24/7 except when I go away on holiday.

Firewall, AV and antispyware and of course the OS.

but Adobe Acrobat is far and away my most used programme, apart from MS Office and Dreamweaver.

I couldn't run my business quite so easily without PDFs.
