I was thinking it would be cool to know what applications/software everyone else is using and their functions. My pc sucks at the moment so all im really using is:
Limewire- undisputed king of file sharing!!
FireFox & Thunderbird- internet browser and e-mail client
spybot:search and destroy- Kills spyware
photoshop 7.0- photo editing program i havent figured out how to use yet.

What stuff do you guys use?????

Heres what i use:

IE-internet client
microsoft spyware- take a guess
everest home- tells system specs and gives links to driver downloads
jv16 PowerTools- file/registry searcher/cleaner, great program.

Atomix, post some of the things thats wrong with your PC and some specs. its my profession to clean and speed up computers. Also, id get rid of spybot. its a great program but by statistics and opinions and some facts...the microsoft ones better.

ieSpell - A Spell Checker for Internet Explorer

ieSpell is a free Internet Explorer browser extension that spell checks text input boxes on a webpage. It should come in particularly handy for users who do a lot of web-based text entry (e.g. web mails, forums, blogs, diaries). Even if your web application already includes spell checking functionality, you might still want to install this utility because it is definitely much faster than a server-side solution. Plus you get to store and use your personal word list across all your applications, instead of maintaining separate ones on each application.

The program installs as a new button in the IE toolbar (as well as a new menu item under "Tools") - after filling in a form, just hit the ieSpell button and it pops up a dialog, similar to the MS Word spell check. ieSpell also works (right-click menu only) on other IE based browsers such as SlimBrowser, CrazyBrowser, MSN, MyIE, etc.
