Hi Sean,

This is a good list of programs.

In fact we recommend that users install and use most of these programs ourselves.

However, there are programs like Hijack This, WinsockXPFix, Registry Mechanic etc, which if used wrongly can destabilize the system.

I havent used TuneXP but the advanced tweaks may again not be a good feature to be used by the relatively laymen users.
