ninite - Application Installer / silent updater - Installs a package of programs you choose and silently updated them saying no to all the additional bollocks often prompted to install. In it's infancy but expanding

driver-booster - Complete driver installer / updater - Absolutely, completely and utterly invaluable. Sorts out your entire set of drivers for the whole of windows - Greg, this is your magic bullet for keeping you machine alive (can't help random cats from getting dragged into the fans though.) EDIT - Also gives option to download and install Microsoft/AMD patch for the Meltdown / Spectre CPU issue

backblaze - Unlimited BACKUP cloud storage - Upload a complete PC backup ISO image for example for free
