Photomatix Pro Photomatix Pro

The best hdr post-processing software 4 stars
Although it is pricey, but it is a great investment. Unlike other tone mapping software it has tonnes of options and the added advantage is that it is nifty as compared to other bloated software. My only desire is that the developers change the GUI to charcoal colour. Highly recommended for photographers. Price: Free Trial ($99.00)

Good but not great 4 stars
It lacks a magnifier and a floating bar. Other than these two key features, it has all the features I could think of. Perfect for a USB flash. Price: Free

EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard EaseUS Data Recovery Wizard

Not that effective 3 stars
It's recovery was just at par with that of the freeware Recuva. I wasn't impressed as it managed to recover 89 files from my Bin, while another shareware found 138 files, and completely recovered them. Price: Free

The best geocoder 5 stars
It's the best geocoder. At first look it feels a bit overwhelming, but as you settle down you realise that it's loaded with rich functions that make other tagging tools simpleton. The author has done a great job! Price: Free

YoWindow YoWindow

The best screensaver 5 stars
It's the only weather forecasting software that allows one to use one's own image as the background animation. I've recommended it to my mates. My favourite weather application! Price: Free Trial ($19.99)

MjM Photo Recovery MjM Photo Recovery

It saved the day 5 stars
My friend accidentally formated the MicroSD card while fooling around with his Nokia mobile. He brought forth his predicament to me, as he considers me tech savvy (which I can assure you that I am not). The first software that I used to recover the photos was my all-time favourite, Recuva, and to my utter disappointment it failed to find even a single file, even with its deep-scan option enabled. Then read the review by 'dpqbdp' and used this REMARKABLE freeware, and presto: 268 JPG images recovered, and out of which only 16 images were corrupt. And now my friend has promised me a pack of Cohibas. Price: Free

PNotes PNotes

Almost perfect 5 stars
Finally a virtual sticky that bettered my all time favourite post-it notes software, Stickies (by Tom Revell), by being really low on resources when idle. Price: Free

Almost on a par with Winamp 5 stars
Those who are hooked on Winamp, would love this wonderful Russian audio-player too. It utilizes very low resources, yet houses some rich features that even an audiophile would appreciate. Give it a go. Price: Free

RarmaRadio RarmaRadio

The only radio player you'll ever need 4 stars
I have been using it since it was a freeware. The only drawback I feel is that of the interface. A face-lift is needed, other than that, it is the best in the business. Price: Free

MediaMonkey MediaMonkey

A very effective music manager 4 stars
It's a very effective music manager. At first instance it seems a bit intimidating but once you get a hang of it, it's far better than .... Give it a try if you have a large collection of music files. Price: Free

It passed all the PC Flank tests. The training is a bit cumbersome, as it is with all the other firewalls. Coupled with my Eset NOD32, it's a great internet security tool. Price: Free

Orbit Downloader Orbit Downloader

Not what it used to be 4 stars
After using it as my default download manager for 3 years, I'm forced to say that it is not what it used to be. So find something else if you intend to download files greater than 400 MB. Price: Free

VisualRoute VisualRoute

Excellent shareware 4 stars
Though it's on the expensive side for such a utility, nevertheless, the mapping feature just provides hours of entertainment. The interface needs some face-lifting in order to be at par with the current software. If money can be spared then this software should be on the list of a power-user. Price: Free Trial ($49.95)

Xion Audio Player Xion Audio Player

Good but not great. 5 stars
It's a very nice audio player for an average listener, but definitely falls short of catering to a serious listener. The skins are interesting, but not all components of the player get skinned. The plus point is that it uses very light resources. Price: Free

NoteZilla NoteZilla

ACDSee Pro ACDSee Pro

Extremely powerful photo-manager. 5 stars
It is far better than Adobe's Lightroom, but if you don't have the latest and greatest PC then you'll have to live with somewhat sluggish performance. Nevertheless it is still my default image-viewer. Price: Free Trial ($199.99)

It beats the rest by miles. 5 stars
I have been using it since version 3.1 appeared on the scene. And ever since then, it's my default compression tool. At times it (version 3.81 build 1550) does fail to open password-protected RAR files. I hope this minor glitch is fixed in the next build. It's a must-have, so don't wait, download it now! Price: Free

ZipGenius ZipGenius

Compression tools champion. 5 stars
Although I'm a staunch supporter of IZArc, I'm still compelled to say that ZipGenius is a must-have for every power-user. You will not need any other compression suite. The Italians are the FIFA World Cup champions, F1 champions, UEFA Champions Leaugue champions and now the Compression Tools champions! Price: Free

jetAudio Basic jetAudio Basic

Very impressive indeed. 5 stars
I gave it a test, and it fulfilled all of my needs without any hassles. Over all it's a great media-player. And to be honest it's very difficult for me to decide which one is the better, WinAmp or JetAudio. JetAudio has all the plug-ins bundled in, whereas, WinAmp relies on 3rd-party plug-ins. Price: Free

Lock My PC Lock My PC

Excellent. 5 stars
It locks the system without any leaks. Moreover, it can even lock the CD/DVD trays. Personally I like the feature of displaying a VIDEO while the system is locked. Although "1st Security Agent" has more features, this software is much more simpler. Give it a try. Price: Free Trial ($19.95)

BlazeDVD Professional BlazeDVD Professional

Very good indeed. 5 stars
The plus point of the player is that it is very light on the resources as compared to the giants like PowerDVD and WinDVD. I didn't experience any choppy results. Give it a try, it might become your default DVD playing software. Very efficient work by the Chinese coders. Price: Free Trial ($49.95)

BitMeter 2 BitMeter 2

A superb bandwidth monitoring utility. 5 stars
It has all the features that a bandwidth monitoring utility must have, including a "click through" feature that enables a user to click through the graph. The only drawback in my view is that it takes a lot of memory (from 17MB to 35MB on my PC). Price: Free

CaptureWizPro CaptureWizPro

The best of the rest. 5 stars
I have tested a number of screen-capturing utilities but this is the one to which I revert again and again. It can also capture screen action to video file (AVI). I wish it had a freehand capturing tool too. This is the niftiest of them all. Go for it, you would not regret. Price: Free Trial ($39.95)
