The ultimate apps thread - lol too many stickies!

Having sourced a cheeky 30 gig usb hard disk from work, I am wondering the best collection of programs/ utils/ drivers/ essentials that you all seem to need and have on your usb pens. I have to fix pc's every now and them for mates who have broke or lost their piccies, any useful things I should have? Pref free versions if possible.

I have the following so far,

winzip
nero
AVG antivirus
bulletproof ftp server
daemon tools
direct x 9.0c
gmail FS
mirc
nero
quickpar
screen print
smart ftp
adaware
tweakui
ultra iso
videolan
voptxp defrag tool
winamp
itunes
zone alarm home
MS anti spyware
vnc

Anything else I should have? What would be a good free tool for getting data back from deletions or memory card corruption? Also what do you think I should keep on there just in case? I think maybe some drivers for chipsets and gfx cards will go on soon, along with some mp3's

Just in case. Although most of my mates are on broadband there are the odd 1 or 2 which still use modems. Also if I have to reinstall a pc from disk and cant get onto net through BB I may have to go back to a dial up to find some NIC drivers. I would rather have one there just in case. Cheers Ray

Spybot
Adaware
CW Shredder
Hijack This
Stinger Antivirus (doesn't need installing: http://vil.nai.com/vil/stinger/)
And for dial-up I would suggest Ecosse, you don't have to sign up, just use the username and password listed on the website.

Also, possibly winrar or similar if you are taking winzip, just in case
