In that case you are fine.
But, eh.., otherwise, thats not right (technically speaking)
BTW, the same point is a strong contending issue wherever we see the wars of Licensed s/w and Piracy.
People claim, that maximum percentage of pirate owners do not use any s/w for commercial gains, and most probably wouldnt pay if they "had" to, to use the particular software, they would switch to some free one instead.!!
anyway, I guess, thats a different story.

Came across WinToFlash yesterday.
It basically lets you copy Windows XP (or vista?) installer cd onto your USB drive and makes the USB drive bootable, so you can install windows from the thumbdrive itself.
Very SIMPLE way to do it. 6mb file. No installation required.
Some softwares have a free "educational" version with a few small restrictions. Check those out.
Alternatively, these days there is a freeware alternative to almost every program out there.

My list is below
1) Irfanview - Best Image viewer in the world and its free!
2) Winrar - Light and fast file compression utility. Shareware.
3) VLC, WinAMP - Freewares
4) Symantec End point protection - Very good protection if you are always connected to Internet.
5) Notepad++ = Excellent editor, freeware.
6) CCleaner - Freeware.
7) Firefox and Google chrome - As always.

Quick question on Mozilla bookmarks. Is there a way to pull the bookmarks from one system to another?
Its possible to copy the favorites files on internet explorer and paste them on the new system. Please help.

^^Yes you can. just copy the folder where firefox saves its bookmarks and paste it in the new system. I have done that and it works just fine.

xobni: best outlook plugin used on Outlook 2007. I no longer use it on Outlook 2010. Not stable yet on 2010. Maybe a later version. Xobni - Outlook Plugin to Search People, Email, and Attachments Instantly

My favourite software that i install on all my computers :
1. Opera : My favourite browser ( fast, secure, lightweight and has all the features inbuilt without needing addons ) and since it has Opera Sync inbuilt, I can move all my favourites, speed dials, notes, history, etc to all my computers.
2. VLC media player : Light weight and plays all video formats.
3. Jet Audio : Light weight media player for listening to audio. Earlier, I used to use Winamp during Winamp 2 days but since the release of version 3 and then 5, it has become very heavy on resources. So i dont use it anymore.
4. Foxit PDF reader : Again, I dont use Adobe Reader since it is slow and bulky ( 80MB for just reading PDF files? ) . Foxit on the other hand is lightweight and doesn't use much resources.
5. Open Office : This is probably the only software I use that is a bit heavy on the resources, but it is free, so i recommend it to everyone who cannot afford to get a license for Microsoft Office. This has most of the features necessary for normal users.
6. WinRAR : For archiving requirements.

For Windows XP it will be:
C:\Documents and Settings\<USER>\Application Data\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles\XXXXXXXX.default
