Personally, the first few things i download when making a new install are always,

WinRAR, FireFox, Chrome, Pidgeon, GIMP, TerraCopy, Foxit Reader, Tirminal, LogMeIn Free, Hamachi, and Shredder,/Thunderbird

Im sure you've heard of most of them, but Terminal [http://www.tirminal.com/] is a great file sharing program, not p2p really... more of a i want to share this file with a friend, but its too big to e-mail. you have tirminal installed, but they just click your link, gets through firewalls instantly, and is safe, and can be further protected to your liking. logmein free is great if you leave your computer on. Hamachi isnt for everyone... some people dont have a use for it.... but worth looking into...
