Which one does not install ? And, by the way, are you using vista ? Are you really administrator ?

Top 46 Freeware Programs
The only one on the 46-best site won't install (saying I need "administrator privelidges" -- MY PC, MY ADMINISTRATION!!), and to actually see his top selections I need to subscribe to his newsletter.
So naturally I'm a little disappointed.
Can anyone give me a preview? some recommendations?

but so far nothing can replace these :
Paint Shop Pro 9 / Paint Shop Pro X ( 10 )
3DS Max 7.5
seriously , I've tried everything else ... yes they might be GOOD but not even close , and plz dont even start recommending that GIMP thing , It's very good indeed , but I would replace MS paint with it not my Paint Shop .
Same idea for MAX , there's dozens of freeware modelers out there , yet none of them is even 1/10000 close to max
CAD software .. the standard since I was born ,.. Autocad !
btw here's good cool video player alternative . it's minimalist in size ( 200kb ) I helped design the graphics and the website

I also love guiltware. it's not common, but the concept is pretty sweet: tell users that it's free to use as long as they want, but if they feel guilty about not paying for their programs, they can make a donation (any amount that they want) to a charity.
There was one non-Windows version of Notepad years and years ago that was guiltware. Naturally, I've upgraded to newer computers (and have had quite a few total system crashes) since then ... that was like eight years ago. I can't remember the name of it, but it was a really sweet, stable, easy to use Notepad type application. I wish I could remember what it was called so I could go look for it.

That, plus the fact that piracy is illegal; at least, from a civil standpoint. the fact of the matter is that piracy could not become anymore illegal than it is now. Still, one would have to look at their own conscience for what they believe to be correct, then go from there.
In any case, I couldn't pirate worth, well, *bleep*. I suppose it's a good thing, 'cause, chances are, if I knew HOW to pirate, I wouldn't be surprised if I WOULD pirate... then again I wouldn't be surprised if I didn't either - !
But - hey, whatever floats your boat...

Well, it's very good to know the both of you deal in Warez, a "civil wrong". While I don't approve, it is and can only be a "civil wrong", and nothing more.
In any case, I'm not a pirater and thoroughly enjoy when stuff is fed to me on a sliver spoon - !
Talking about silver spoons, the last thing taht I licked from the silver spoon was "Hummingbird Exceed PowerSuite 2006", if I lick it from the golden spoon it costs me 745 US-$, so I really do prefer the silver spoon.
I think ALL software should be free for private use. Some companies do so and give away their software for free for private use only, and still take money for professional/commercial use. Sun Solaris for example or Oracle Database software or Ragtime DTP program.
If NOONE on this planet would use pirate software on his desktop, the power of companies like Microsoft or Macromedia would be much smaller. Their power lives through the high number of illegal installations. That's why they don't really act against private MS Office installations for example. In other words, even if I install cracked software, the software companies still earn money through me.
