Piece of software you couldn't live without?

  powerless 00:16 27 May 2003

I hope this is allowed.

...But just been going through the installed programs having a look at what is installed and was just wondering what would I do if I uninstalled one of them.

What else/alternative could I use?

I guess the one piece of sotfware I really like and use is...Well... Microsoft Internet Explorer - ok, ok, so its already installed and there are alternatives. But I find MSIE suits me fine, it's fast for me and very easy to use and well I've been with with since version 4 (i think) and it does what I want it to do.

I have tried Opera and although it is a nice browser to use, I went back to MSIE.

So "Piece of software you couldn't live without?" Micorsofts Internet Explorer for me!

Apart from the obvious like Windows and Office etc. Partition Magic and Drive Image, I wouldn't like to be without these two. Google is another must have. Winamp I use a lot. Another small program I find I use almost everyday is Yankee Clipper which is freeware. Also EnditAll gets a lot of use, another free one.

Lotus Smartsuite & Paintshop pro, but in both cases there are alternatives. I can't think of anything totaly unique that I couldn't do without.

Paintshop Por 7 (SOON TO BE 8) PowerDVDxp & trillian. As my 3 daughters use different messenger programmes means I don't have to have all the programs open. Enditall and The software that came with my creatives Audigy soundcard. Musicmatch for my MP3 player and MS Publisher. oh and loads of others. Nero adobestuff etc.
