PDF
Free PDF utilities are ubiquitous, but most are heavily ad supported or come with toolbars or require Java. For PDF viewing and form completion, it’s tough to beat PDF-XChange Editor from Tracker Software. To merge PDFs, the open source PDF Merge Tool is small and simple and doesn’t require Java like PDFSAM.

Disk partitioning
EASUS Home Edition Free partition manager supports Windows 2000/XP/Vista for HOME USER ONLY. You can free enjoy it like the commercial Partition Magic!

System cleaner
CCleaner is a freeware system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool. It removes unused files from your system – allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. Additionally it contains a fully featured registry cleaner. But the best part is that it’s fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware! 🙂

Disk defragmentation
Auslogics Disk fragmentation leads to system slowdowns, PC crashes, slow startups and shutdowns. Auslogics Disk Defrag is designed for fast optimization of modern hard disks. Use it together with Auslogics BoostSpeed to get the top performance out of your expensive hardware. Disk Defrag is absolutely free.

Window management and utilities
AltDrag lets you hold the alt key and click anywhere in a window to drag it. KatMouse makes the mouse or touch pad scroll function work on the window under the mouse without clicking first to set focus. Winsplit Revolution lets you use hot keys to automatically resize windows on the screen to fit predefined geometries.
