Favorite freeware programs

Since discovering Usenet a few years ago, I have tried several different Newsgroup programs, however there were very few free ones available. A few weeks ago I discovered a great freeware program called alt.binz.

One thing I really like about this program is the fact that it can be set up to automatically check, repair, and unrar your downloaded files. This is a real time saver.
