Name a useful and free application or utility that you use.
Must be free and with "no nags" - i.e. No spyware, ads, etc.
We all know and like AVG, MS Antispyware, Ad-Aware & Spybot.
EDIT: Please don't just link to a general download website - be specific, try to name an actual application that you use, find useful and would like to recommend.
Here's one of mine to start:
DeskPins allows you to keep a window "on top".
i.e. You're pasting and copying something into notepad and you want to keep a small notepad window visible while you edit another document; or you're watching the BBC news and don't want to lose the video while you get on with some 'work'.

But get a load of firefox extensions for your browser, seriously, I have found quite a few decent extensions which I now use all the time.
Examples from my setup: -
Gmail Notifier - Pretty self explanatory
Download Manager Tweak - Puts your downloads into another tab instead of a separate window
Tab X - Puts a close button on each tab (instead of at the right)
Stop-or-Reload button - Deletes your stop button and changes your "refresh" button to "stop" when a site is loading, then changes back to "refresh" when the site it fully loaded. Saves space.
Google Suggest - Adds google suggest technology to your search bar in the top right

The majority of my sites are hosted with Freeola, they have their own online domain management system, but this has been unavailable for quite a while: [URL]http://ukchatforums.reserve.co.uk/display_messages.php?threadid=128293&forumid=414[/URL]
They also send out emails but often 3 months in advance which isn't ideal.
I'm looking for a stand alone application. This has been discussed here before, the only decent free one I can find doesn't cater for co.uk TLD's so isn't right for me.
GoDaddy send you emails when it's within a month then week.
"Occasionally you need to check the spelling of words in an application that does not include a spelling checker and you don't want to launch your word processor just for that. This is when tinySpell becomes handy. It is a small utility that allows you to easily and quickly check the spelling of words in any Windows application. tinySpell monitors your typing on the fly and alerts you whenever it detects a misspelled word. It also checks the spelling of every word you copy to the clipboard."

Can anyone recommend a good Domain Name 'manager' that shows expiration dates etc. ???
"Notepad++ is a free source code editor which supports several programming languages running under the MS Windows environment."
Incidentally, I had to use this because the Gimp can't draw circles. $5000 bounty for it on gnome.org, I think. I hate the UI on the Gimp anyway, so I was quite glad not to have to struggle with it.
Looking for one that returns if a domain is available...anyone?
