    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.

    7zip - http://www.7-zip.org
    V - http://www.fileviewer.com

    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
    BZip2 formats.

    A U3 (portable) version is available - which lets you take a copy of V
    wherever you go.

    conset.exe http://www.geocities.com/fp.westlake/nt/
    reads registry to current cmd.exe environment.

    cmdopen.dll opens cmd.exe in the current window, but can be fixed to open cmx.exe, which in turn loads eg 4nt.exe or cmd.xex (as it is patched).

    context.exe (maddog), brings up context menu from command line


    fcw.exe = powerful NC like file shell, supports Descript.ion &c.

    ntsubst.exe = replacement for subst that support currently used drives,

    regina.exe (rexx)

    secon32.exe (cenvi for Win32)

    shelexec (msft), opens objects with no fuss

    tfc.exe (jfc.exe for Windows and OS/2)

    wassociate.exe (not really command line, but fixes associations in a flash)

    isocomp.exe (compares recently burnt cd with sorce .iso file)
