  • Spiceworks

    Openfire/Spark-internal instant messaging

    AngryIP-great little IP scanning tool

    CCleaner-removing junk (even use it on servers)

    Firefox-w/Spicworks Toolbar (i use the search mostly to find the computer of the person calling by searching their username. By the time they tell me what is going on, I've already pulled up their computer.)

    OpenOffice.org

    Sysinternals

    Autoit3-just started using it, but seems like it should prove to be extremely useful.
