            i dont suggest dap unless you really need it, it messes up some of your settings

            try cablenut.com

            its a better tweak but it isnt a dl manager

            Macromedia Studio MX
            Adobe Photoshop 6/7
            msn aim icq yahoo
            a decent virus scanner
            winrar
            acrobat reader

                            I find virus scanners worse than many viruses.

                            If you create a machine that has all these programs you could make an image of the disk and if you need to reformat just restore the image, its all there again

                              That's exactly what I need to do. I keep meaning to do it though I just forget because I get wrapped up in other stuff.
