On my XP machine, shareware or freeware used every day:

VLC to display all kinds of media

Irfan View to display all kinds of images

Spider for music and podcasts, instead of Winamp

Total Commander for file management and MTP devices like cameras and mp3 players. Runs rings around Windoze Explorer

Macro Express for keyboard macros

Truecrypt for file encryption

Opera for my browser (has a slick RSS/XML/Atom aggregator for blogs and podcasts), Thunderbird for my e-mail

H-Menu to launch programs from the edge of the screen. Keeps the desktop clean.

And all the Google apps: IGoogle, Google Docs, Google Calendar, Google Reader, G-mail are all great away from home and the office
