Oh yeah I forgot one, and this a a real program not a PC utility. West Point Bridge Design. Its a free program that lets you get really creative in creating and designing bridges. Every year WestPoint hold a best brigde contest and the winner gets scholorships. That being said the program is intended for students who what to go into the architectural/engineering feilds but it is really cool and quite advanced, IMO.

-AOL Instant Messenger
-Yahoo (games, instant messenging, e-mail)
-Desktop Weather (interactive weather service on your desktop from The Weather Channel)

Steve mentioned most of the other stuff that is worth downloading. If you can't find what you're looking for, you can always search cnet.com for free programs.
And then of course there is a basic that everyone needs. Adobe Reader. If you are into Bible study E-Sword is great. A number of Bibles, commentaries, dictionaries, even maps and pictures, all for free.
