I would remove Firefox from that list, it (on my machine) is an extreme memory hog. :(

I uses Error Repair Professional often as a general maintenance utility. Spybot Search & Destroy is my spyware program of choice and AVG Free is my anti virus utility.

Daemon Tools is a good iso mounter. Photobucket allows you to edit images on their server now, too.

I haven't yet found a reliable video converter for many filetypes. Thoughts?

Handbrake and XMedia Recode are good video converters, they take time, but they do pretty good jobs. I used to use Handbrake to convert DVD, now I use XMedia to convert MKV to M4V to stream through iTunes airplay.
