I just had to reformat my computer. It's running 64-bit vista (please, no flames).

I already have installed the following:
■ all necessary drivers
■ all necessary Windows updates
■ avg antivirus
■ firefox
■ flash
■ peazip archiver, quickpar
■ pdf reader (foxit)
■ skype
■ truecrypt
■ thunderbird
■ itunes
■ vmware
■ anydvd
■ some sort of video-to-ipod-touch converter
■ newsleecher
■ openoffice
■ steam, impulse
■ Nero, for burning CD's and DVD's

Anything I'm missing that should be considered essential software for a fresh install? I want to make an image so I don't have to go through all this hassle next time I want to reformat.
