Sublime Text
Better than N++
$59, but there's a full fledged time-unlimited trial.
I'd buy it if I could :)

I've just been through the whole thread and was surprised that no one mentioned IrfanView for image viewing. It may be old, but it's good.

DropBox - 92GB of free storage to any comcputer online or more easily accessible when installed.

MP3Tag - Music tagging (For you anal-retentive people out there like me)

Virtual Box - Install virtual operating systems. (Though if you don't have any installation discs [Like Windows or Mac] you will have to torrent the ISO's.. Linux although is a free opportunity)

Don't know if any of these were what you are looking for.

Ultradefrag - an open source, small, fast defragmenter with shell integration (right click-defragment file, folder etc). Keeps my disks happy.

win32whois - Quoting the author:"Win32Whois is a free, small and efficient tool that lets you retrieve registration information for a particular domain or website. It takes URL, hostname or IP address and will generate a detailed report listing all the available technical and contact information it can find. The generated report can be saved as a file or used to track down website owners, administrators or spammers."
Since we all do offer some sort of services over the internet, it is wise to know who's who wink

**edit: s/ghena01/gena01 , sorry
