It would have been one patch, but the people who discovered each bug published an exploit immediately.

I'll suggest Nero for the software list.  Solid audio, data, and ISO burning for less than $15 USD (OEM).

As if they haven't been pimped enough already ...

NetCaptor
McAfee SpamKiller

Others ...

o  StyleXP if you're into the whole Luna GUI for XP.
o  Alcohol CD/DVD burning software -- also has a very nicely working virtual CDROM drive you can mount Images to.  A lot better than that piece of shit that gets put on by Roxio.
o  Spybot S&D, which is a fine replacement for Ad-Aware, as it catches a lot of things AdA no longer looks for.
o  And not quite installable software, but useful nonetheless.  I don't do enough file transfers of infected files, trojans, etc. to warrant a big, resource hogging anti-virus, but every week or so I do a virus scan at [url=http://housecall.trendmicro.com/]TrendMicro's Housecall website.  Its also incredibly helpful if you have AV software, but a particular virus has gotten through and actually disabled its functionality (Klez, for example).

Is the UT2003 executable so small because all of the important shit is in DLLs, or something?

And .U files.  If you add up the EXE, the DLLs and the U files you'll get the total of the games code size.  Although that's not entire accurate either because .U files contain sounds and textures for some things, as well as the UnrealScript code.

CramTex!

Mark Randel - "We have our own combinatorial algorithm called "CramTex" that optimizes textures so that every pixel in the map is used and visible on characters and objects. Since CramTex uses AI algorithms, it is much better than any human can do on their own. It is important to use true color textures and higher resolution textures to get more detail. Nocturne used 2 256x256 BGRA textures for characters, Blair Witch uses 512x512 BGRA textures for characters. With CramTex, we get much better textel usage than other engines. Which is critical for making your game look great on older systems or game consoles."

Eh some, but ThemeXP seems to be their sponsored site -- so is going to have the most number of themes available.  As stated, Deskmod has some.  I thought Deviant Art did, but it appears they don't.  Otherwise, there's Customize.org, GetSkinned.org, and XPTheme.info.  That's just what I've found thus far.  I really don't look much since most of the themes I use are found at ThemeXP anyhow.

If you are wanting to free up hard drive space, it's very handy to use because you can quickly see what files or directories are taking up the most room.

Which, BTW ... I found to be incredibly useful.  I had it installed on all of my servers at work, so that I could take a quick glance at where storage space was at.  Also, the reports it generated were superb when asking for a cluster storage array in the budget.

Style XP is basically unnecessary, since replacing one .dll is all you need to be able to put your own themes, and you can change the "loginui.exe" field in the registry for the login part. And, of course, you can customise your login.exe (or any other executable)'s resources with the huggable and free Resource Hacker

Regarding other software (that hasn't been mentioned yet here, of course Total Commander is the love of all loves and things like Crazy Browser or Nero are close), I would like to once again pimp my favorite media player - the (free) Media Player Classic shares only a name and nostalgic resemblance with the MS antecedent. It has all the strong points of BSPlayer, none of the weird quirks. Take a look at the filters list and tell me why all software can't be this effective and simple to use.

One program that simply has NO alternative is the G-spot, which will tell you more about codecs for a particular stream than you could wish to know. And if you simply do not wish to know anything, install FFDShow, and chances are you won't have to. Plays it all, enables you to add all sorts of weird effects and grain and shit and takes less processor for the same thing than either XviD or Divx codecs. Just grab the latest alpha.

Then there is OE Quotefix, which makes Outlook Express useable and bearable.

And the proof that you don't have to pay for PGP - WinPT. Uses and includes GnuPG - very lovely interface. For OE-GPG integration, there is a plugin on the same site.

Lastly, there is Tight VNC, which you probably actually don't need, but it's well written and free and I love it.

Oh, and play Raven Shield.
