PC Medic Crash Protection McAfee 8.18M
This thing is dangerous - one of PC Medic's components, called Crash Monitor, keeps its log in the registry - when I figured that out and uninstalled it, registry shrunk from 3.7M to 2M!!
LinkBot HTML checking utility Tetranet Software Great prg! According to my sources (that is, to myself), half of the links on the webpage become outdated within 6 months. Linkbot will help you to find them. Sidenote - better close LinkBot when not using it, I suspect that it hogs CPU.
NetMedic ISP/modem performance monitor Vital Signs  
ZipMagic Warning: if computer hangs while ZipMagic is archiving, there is TROUBLE. Also, letting application use (espcially write!) data files stored inside ZipMagic archive is not totally safe. I'll say more, it's recipee for disaster! File contents may vanish or entire ZIP may get corrupted.
And I also found out that when 22 days are left in evaluation, ZM starts malicious nagging - nag screens appeared twice within 30 minutes.
Finally, if DOS program is set to 'suspend to background', then switching to another window while it's using ZipMagic may cause instant hang! Ok, now that I warned you, read about the features!

Displays ZIP files as folders. Also allows you to peek into ZIP files with Internet Explorer. Can even run programs without explicitly unzipping them - very convenient! One usage example: when browsing software collection CD, go all the way to README files without extracting them. Aside from mere timesaving, it can also help against junk files filing C:\TEMP directory.

What's even more amazing - even in DOS prompt, you can enter ZIP files like directories!!! This is supersonic!!! Creating dreictory like A.ZIP will create a zip file, copying stuff to it will compress the files!!!!

You can run program from ZIP directory - the files it creates will be inside the archive. Even directories it creates will be directories within ZIP file!!!

It even works with FTP server - ZIP files on my anomynous FTP server can now be viewed like directories!!!!!!!!
And ZipMagic supports web servers too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Word of caution - some programs are better off seeing ZIP files as they are - for example, command like FTP client.
