    Just look in my signature.

    My Symantec Antivirus Corporate Edition is pretty nice, but I despise anything and everything else from Symantec. AVG Free Edition is what I would use if I couldn't get Symantec AV CE.

    RegCleaner and RegSupreme are not the same thing. Try the RegCleaner link. HijackThis, CWShredder, and Ad-Aware would be nice if you weren't using Mozilla.

    RegCleaner has a lot mroe available options, rather than being just a search-and-fix tool. SegSupreme is also shareware, not freeware, last time I checked.

    Unless you regularly use Internet Explorer, you shouldn't need much in the line of anti-spyare protection.

    Yet, as in until Mozilla becomes more popular and people develop methods to get past its security. I wouldn't worry about it, though. While much of Mozilla's security comes from obscurity, it is quite simply programmed better and has fewer holes, or at least evidence would show that. You still shouldn't need any form of additional protection unless you are making poor choices in your browsing habits.

    OpenOffice is a very nice Word Processing suite and it completely free. It's a very viable alternative to expensive suites such as MicroSoft Office (in fact, I prefer it over Office).

    Diskkeeper Lite is another great one. Shareazaa is a pretty nice file sharing program, as are the various Bittorent clients (I prefer Azureus myself).

    Abyss Web Server and Apache are a couple nice freeware web server programs, in case you have any need of that.

    The stuff in my signature, as I said, in case you are still having problems with clicking links...

    Prime95 comes to mind as it is great for stress testing if you are overclocking.

    America's Army is an entire freeware game, and not a bad one for that matter.

    DaemonTools is a great CD emulation program that I use regularly.

    PearPC and Basillisk II are Macintosh emulators I've found useful (though they can be a pain to setup).

    7-Zip is a great program for compressing and decompressing files.

    I'll post anything else that comes to mind when it does...
