There are probably untold numbers of programs that are awesome, I never heard of, and can't live without.
Freebies and available on torrents please. Torrents preferred, no links to cracked downloads, the wrong people will get mad.

Git Bash
NuShell

I can't stand powershell and NuShell offers a Bash style script with some degree of GUI in the terminal so you get the best of both worlds.

VS Code and the Tab9 autocomplete extension certainly saves time.

Photoshop and Illustrator
Blender for the 3D side of things

FIgma and photpea.com

These are fairly generic but I couldn't live without them.

GTA 5 deserves an honourable mention
 
Fan Control by Remi Mercier.
While looking for a software solution to control all my various system fans, I just happened to find the greatest program ever. Yes, I know... there are other more well known applications that we have all heard of and many of us have used over the years, but this program blew me away with how easy it was to setup, understand and manipulate the pertaining fan speed controls of my (at the time) aging motherboard and video card.
I have trashed all the other "Big Box" fan control programs and this one, "Fan Control", has become an integral part of my PC/Tech Kit.
Here is JayzTwoCents review of Fan Control -->

No, DUDE YOU DID NOT DO IT RIGHT. The message nicely tells you that you have not turned off the Tamper Protection option. Since you partially turned it off, the page is unavailable to you, now turn on Defender via DefenderUI and do it properly.

Advanced IP Scanner - Good quick inventory of what is connected to your network.
MetaGeek inSSIDer Office for Windows - Nice free verision of a program available that scans and reports all wireless networks within range of your systems. Will give suggestions on proper wireless channesl on both frequencies in order to maximise performance
