If you want to get into ftp, SmartFTP is my ftp client of choice (www.smartftp.com) though I know many others prefer Flash FXP and the like. For ftp servers, I like GuildFTPd (www.guildftpd.com).

Other useful free stuff I use ... well, there's TweakUI and other powertools for Windows XP from the microsoft website

As far as unzipping goes, I'm not a winzip fan, but rather like Stuff-It (www.aladdinsys.com).

Also, you gotta be in contact with your internet peeps ;) www.aol.com for AIM, www.yahoo.com for Yahoo! Messenger and www.icq.com for ICQ. Plus, Windows/MSN Messenger comes with Windows ;) Or, for those all-in-1ers out there, there's Trillian (http://www.ceruleanstudios.com/trillian/index.html).

Hope some of this helps ya!

How is Dead AIM free if they are asking $4.99 to DL it?

To the best of my knowledge it used to always be free? I never used it myself, though. Version 4 of DeadAIM was recently released, maybe they changed their policy with this new version?
