The VLC media player plays pretty much everything you throw at it. Whenever I come across a media file other players don't recognize, are unable to open or unable to read sound or video, VLC is my go-to tool. I've installed it on friends' computers when they complained about music or videos not playing on their computers, and every time it works like magic. Highly recommend to anyone!
I'm all about free stuff. Auslogics has the best free defrag tool out there. It's fast, it has a beautiful and very informative interface, many more features than Microsoft's defrag that comes with Windows. I don't understand people who still use the defrag in Windows when there is a much faster and prettier alternative. I even got a t-shirt from Auslogics with their Disk Defrag logo - a little contribution to support the company that made this wonderful tool available for free.
Avast Free Antivirus is effective (at least according to expert testers, I haven't had a chance to test it for cleaning out viruses). What I like about it the most is that it is light, it does not bug me to death with notifications, all updates and maintenance are done seamlessly. It has stopped me from visiting infected sites and I have never had a single infection in the time I've been using this excellent program, which is about 3 years now.
