i use xp manager, jv16 powertools and sisoft sandra professional.
http://www.winxp-manager.com/
http://www.jv16.org/
http://www.sisoftware.net/

xp manager has alot of tweaks and cool **** like information,optimizer, cleaner, customization, security, network, and misc utilities. its a ton of stuff u can do to xp all in one.

jv16 is just a good utility with alot of tools

sandra prof. can tell me so much about my computer along with benchmarking and other way cool stuff. heres a screenshot of sandra http://www.jaggedonline.net/images20...SP1screens.jpg
actually it has like all the specs for other hdds, cpus, memory etc so when u test ur box u have something to compare it to, thats what that pie graph pentagon thingy is in that pic

alot of these are shareware but are limited versions, i have full versions of all and am happy with each

edit, and i use zonealarms cache cleaner to get rid temp. internet files, index.dat files, run/search/url etc history, and also adaware 6.0 prof. and spybot s+d

I use the following on a regular basis:

AdAware

Diskeeper

ServersAlive

HyperSnap

CookiePatrol

Anonymizer

And I use Symantec/Norton Firewall/AV on the desktops and workstations, and ZoneAlarm on the servers.

I use:

PC Wizard
-good program for system monitoring and benchmarking

CPU-Z
-brief and quick information about your CPU and memory, etc

WinRAR
-good compression and extraction software

dBPowerAmp
-good for CD-ripping

these should work on win2k
