Here is a list of some of the software I use at home.

avast! Free Antivirus ( Fine antivirus program at no charge.

XnView ( Free image and graphic file viewer/converter.

FileZilla Client ( Open Source FTP.

Microsoft Visual Studio ( Great set of tools to use (I use Visual Basic/C# and SQL Server mostly). 

WinMerge ( File compare and merge utility. Normally I try to integrate this with whatever source control software I’m using.

Update March 2021

Notepad++ ( Possibly the best text editor – check out the vast array of plugins which extend the functionality in a huge way.

Portable Apps ( All kinds of apps you didn’t know you needed.

PicPick ( Screen capture and graphics editor.

Backup Creator ( Back up your data.
