The Avenger
http://swandog46.geekstogo.com/avengernotes.htm
Ever have an annoying chunk of malware that won't let go, even in safe mode? Run The Avenger to schedule the deletion/renaming of files/registry keys after a reboot before the nasties even have a chance to load.

NirCmd
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/nircmd.html
Perform useful tasks silently, like changing system volume, closing/ejecting the CDROM drive, hide/show windows... some of the tasks it performs may seem silly/trivial, but you'll find it golden when combined with...

PsExec

Execute processes on remote systems. A billion cool uses. Combine with NirCmd and administrative credentials to drive your co-workers to the brink of insanity.

Analyzes media files to determine what codecs are required to play them, among other things.

AutoIT
http://www.autoitscript.com/autoit3/
Write scripts to automate the Windows GUI... move the mouse, read window titles, select buttons, hide/show windows... anything. A billion potential uses. Also, build your own GUI apps!

Wink
http://www.debugmode.com/wink/
Why provide only written instructions? Wink performs screen captures to build animated and interactive training materials. Exports to Flash!

FreeMind

"Mindmapping" software to assist with brainstorming/organization.

WikidPad

A Wiki-like Notepad replacement. Wiki notation, hierarchical trees, export to HTML... very cool tool for pouring your brain out into a useable form. Great for keeping personal how-to lists and knowledgebases.
