Tell Me Some Insanely Great App (for Windows) That I Can't Possibly Live Without.

Xplorer 2
ExpressVPN--I had Surfshark for years, went downhill when Nord took over. I have home network Win10-Win7-Win11. SS constantly lost network connection. ExpressVPN never does, whether I log off on or.
AnyTXT Searcher. I use UltraSearch too but it's mostly file names. AnyTXT can find keywords within files, and display preview in pop up.
SnagIt screencapture-- lots of annotation features; does OCR on text image
DTSearch--the BEST searcher for folders you put into library. Full page previews
ABBYY Finereader--best results on convert PDF to Word
Calibre--- import Kindle DRM, removes DRM and can convert format to others. I hate epub; always convert to .docx.
Atomic Alarm Clock-- set reminders to pop up with sound files alarms
IDM forever!
Bigasoft Video converter-- some sites give .ts format which doesn't scrub easily. I convert to mp4
Mailstore Home Portable---monthly archiving of my emails, keep 'em for years for quick reminders and lost info
Treesize Pro--makes variety of charts showing what is filling up your drives. let me find hyberfil.sys and delete it saving 12 gigs!
Classic Shell-- F' the eye candy of Win 7, 10, 11 ! I like organizing my Start Menu MY WAY!
Keylaunch---when you have dozens if not a hundred programs, utilities, type a few letters and snap! pops up list to launch.
 
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.
What is a reputable torrent website to download programs from?
 
Revo is awesome
Winrar most definitely
CCleaner is a great cleaner
Nitro Pro for PDF
WinPE Strelec
AVAST Premium or Malwarebytes when it comes to Anti-Viruses.
Oh and Thumper you are amazing thanks for everything you do and all of your contributions much love to you
Nitro Pro is the best

1337x. It's been a little wonky lately, so have many cloudflare protected sites. You can trust the torrents posted there. 1337x also has partner sites listed.

I almost exclusively get my apps from TeamOS. It's a private torrent site but doesn't restrict new signups. Although, you do have to keep a ratio of at least 1:1. The site is geared towards operating systems but you'll find just about any app you can think of. I haven't had any issues with malware in the over two years I've been using the site but I choose not to download any files from newer users or files that are not on a torrent but instead stored on a file hosting site.

There are about 450 free open source programs at PortableApps.com which are best used with their platform and they can be run from a flashdrive.

I use teamos.xyz for almost all my software needs. It's a private torrent tracker but with unrestricted sign-ups. You have to keep your ratio up to 1:1 to prevent being shitlisted but being able to get the apps I want without fear of viruses makes all that seeding worth it.
