Freeware apps Collection merged with > A Few Good Programs/Software

I wanted to start a thread of all the freeware Apps I use so that others can try them out. There are thousands of Apps out there but they are at all different websites. I had an idea to put some of them in one place for all members of this forum to input the Apps they use and their recommendations with their own input.
Let me know if you think this is a good idea or not. Here is my first App I'd recommend. More to follow shortly.

Folder Size 1.2.0.0

Folder Size will analyze your hard drives and display the file and folder sizes so that you can easily check the distribution of your disk space. The application will display the sizes of the folders and files and also the percentage of the total disk size that they occupy. Below is a screenshot of what it looks like on my laptop. Click on this link for more information and also to download.

Process Explorer
The Process Explorer display consists of two sub-windows. The top window always shows a list of the currently active processes, including the names of their owning accounts, whereas the information displayed in the bottom window depends on the mode that Process Explorer is in: if it is in handle mode you'll see the handles that the process selected in the top window has opened; if Process Explorer is in DLL mode you'll see the DLLs and memory-mapped files that the process has loaded. Process Explorer also has a powerful search capability that will quickly show you which processes have particular handles opened or DLLs loaded.

Re: Freeware apps Collection

You know, we should make a 1-up thread. not just a smattering of freeware, but more objective based. For example
Disk Space management:
Comptronic says : Folder Size
wcogent says: Space Sniffer - single file. speedy. double click, see all. PERIOD.
