    So lets hear it, which shareware applications have you found to be well worth purchasing?

    Mine:

    AI Roboform - easily one of my most valuable internet tools, in fact I just purchased a 2nd, portable license.
    Ad Muncher - one of the best ad blockers.
    Spywareblaster - I consider this more of a donation to a worthy cause ;)

    mIRC (by accident!)
    Donated to Rainmeter (fixed bug for me!)
    Considering GiantAntiSpy (but not yet)
    Quite open to buying more - but seems a lot of the programs are the ad supported or free side and do not get around to it (Examples are Foobar and a couple of DVD/CD utlities I use once in a while if I have burn problems).

    Total Commander (when it was Windows Commander in 1998) and I still get free updates! Best file manager EVER!

    Hmm... shareware, I remember that :p

    Getright is borderline, FlashFXP which is more of a demo these days with its nag screens, but I guess if a product is fully functional it has to count.

    Then of course Doom !!!

    I have never really purchased anything cause i know my mom wouldnt want to. Also most of the programs that are free for so many days are programs i use once in awhile sometimes only once so it wouldnt be a waste.
