    Windows 7, Notepad++ has been an awesome notepad replacement as I program and it will treat .C, .H files appropriately and highlight, colorize the code, it remembers documents you had open when you run it and opens them again automatically, love that feature more than I realized I would. Firefox (tried Chrome, hated it) and Thunderbird for email. Codeblocks for my programming, Agent and I still use an OLD version of FTP95 (for Windows 95) that still runs beautifully on all versions of windows.

    I don't run any anti-virus on my PC, never get a virus. I will run one once a year or so and never find anything, I'm very careful, haven't had anything I don't think since my windows 95 days, even then... I find the virus checkers a bigger pain. ;)
