#3  Utilities

I continually find more useful utilities with some general searches and word of mouth.  I have learned to install only one at a time though, as occasionally an app can slow down or misdirect the operating system.  It's sort of like when you begin feeding babies solid food--one at a time, so you can figure out if there are problems.
