irfanview has been posted on the board in the past, there are many older versions here on this thread (http://www.oldversion.com/talk/index.php?act=ST&f=3&t=884)
XnView (http://www.xnview.com/), freeware, support of more than 400 graphics formats, which is alot more compared to irfanview's 80+ supported formats.
winamp, old versions are hosted on the main site. (http://www.oldversion.com/program.php?n=winamp)
Quintessential (http://www.quinnware.com/index.php) MusicPlayer, FREE, much like MusicMatch

I rem posting the 7zip on your forum, I find it to be better than winzip, as it compresses zips even better than winzip does. Plus doesn't require loading an app to unzip, you can right click on a file and extract the contents quickly. and being free is always good, as winzip is not free.

I've heard you should update to Winamp 5 because of a security problem in the older verisons? anyone heard about this?

WinAmp has found a security hole that could allow an exploit through the use of a skin. It affects all versions from 3.x to 5.04. WinAmp recommends that you upgrade to the latest version 5.05.
