Depends on the day.. I'd say my most frequently used programs would be WinRAR, Photoshop, Cygwin, Nero, CuteFTP, and Windows Media Player. I also use Bloodshed Dev C++ on a daily basis.

The only other program I "can't live without" is Vitrite (, which controls the transparency of windows in 2k/XP. It's really handy when you're multitasking and you need to see two large windows at once.
