IrfanView - Official Homepage - one of the most popular viewers worldwide - IRFanview is a photo/image editor,its free, extremely lightweight, installs on any computer in seconds and has a lot of the most basic image manipulation functions like type conversions, crop, resizing, etc.
Microsoft Security Essentials - Free Antivirus for Windows - Free like AVG, but it runs even more lightweight especially when updating.
Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download - this whole program is like 8mb and it gets a ton of the junky apps. This is what you use on people's computers when they have no idea how to use a computer and they tell you their computer is running slow and you can't barely even open an explorer window to do anything on their computer because its HDDs are filled to the max and its all crappy toolbar's and desktop widgets everywhere.

Download K-Lite Codec Pack - if you watch movies you'l find use for this when you get decoder errors.
VideoLAN - Official page for VLC media player, the Open Source video framework! - VLC media player free media player, light weight, no ads, plays all common file types.
Programmer's Notepad - programmers notepad is almost as lightweight as notepad and supports basic programmings functions for a wide variety of languages and is also free.
JCreator — Java IDE - Free java compiler, its funny because it's literally also one of the best and easiest to use, and its also the free one.
I also recommend Process Explorer for a Task Manager replacement, it's much more effective. You can download it by clicking here

Can you provide a link to it?
Hi, I'm here to help.
That's a super fast download disc0rd. I thought it was a dead link but then I realized I had downloaded it 5 times on the downloads bar on Chrome.
If your tired of all those junk files and registry entries left over from a programs standard uninstaller then try the Revo Uninstaller. After the programs built in uninstaller is finished it leaves lots of junk on your computer and Revo finds them and deletes the trash left behind. I have been using Revo for about 2 years now and am surprised at the stuff a standard uninstaller parks on a computer. There are 2 versions, Free and Pro. I’ve always used the free one.
The only thing you have to watch out for is only delete the registry keys that are in bold type that it shows you. It’s a great program and worth using. When you download it make sure you get the freeware version and not the 30 day free trial pro version. By all means, read the instructions before using. Download it at this link. Download Revo Uninstaller Freeware - Free and Full Download - Uninstall software, remove programs, solve uninstall problems
I like this one, Techyes! I can see it being very useful for a lot of the free applications available. Most free apps have a bunch of ad software bundled into their installs and this program takes care of it! Good find!
