I use 7zip and "V - The Fileviewer" as my must-haves. I have the same
high praise for V as I do for 4NT/TCC.

V is an all-purpose File Manager for Windows (XP/2000/2003/Vista).
Although V might look like another Windows Explorer replacement, its main
strength is its file viewing capabilities. It excels at viewing files
quickly - whether the files are 100 bytes or 100 gigabytes. Support for
EBCDIC files (including common RECFM formats) makes it ideal for those who
work in a mainframe environment.
V is an invaluable utility for anyone who spends much time navigating
directories and viewing files.
For those who prefer to work in DOS Boxes, V is fast and convenient - just
type V Filename and the file is right in front of you. There is no need to
switch to Explorer and certainly no need to bring up a File Open Dialog
Box! An extensive list of keyboard shortcuts means that you don't have to
use the mouse if you don't want to.
A Dual Pane interface (optional) makes it very easy to copy/move files
from one directory to another, and Favorites allow you to quickly view
commonly used files and directories. A Thumbnails Mode makes browsing
image directories a breeze.
Includes search/GREP functionality, hex viewing, Unicode support, greenbar
mode, 2UP printing and support for 4DOS descriptions and Alternate Data
Streams (ADS). The file unzipper supports ZIP, CAB, TAR, RAR, GZip and
A U3 (portable) version is available - which lets you take a copy of V
wherever you go.
