You have all forgotten one of the most important FREE bits of software any student can get.

http://www.openoffice.org/
The office suite, for free. Works very similarly to Microsoft Office, is 100% free, and can be saved in the same file formats as any office product. I personally use this myself.

I thought I'd share some free software that I rate.

Macrium Reflect FREE
Allows full imaging of your HDD. Prefect for backing up your computer. You can select each partition you want to image. Thus it is able to backup your HDD back to it's original bootable state, including hidden partitions so all recovery and repair options still work after recovery.
I would recommend imaging any computer you get as soon as you get it set up. Thus when you want to do a factory install, you can just load the image, which is much faster. (20 min as opposed to hours for me)

Daemon Tools Lite
A complete disc imaging program. It allows creation of images of discs (including in .ISO format). It also supports multiple virtual drives for mounting of images. Integrates with Astroburn Lite for burning of images to disc.

Astroburn Lite
Burn images to disc. Integrates with Daemon Tools Lite.

Recuva
Free file recovery software. Allows recovery of permanently deleted files. Obviously cannot recover files which have been fully or partially overwritten, which is why you should always attempt recovery before doing anything else with computer. If not already installed at time of need, install a portable version onto external media using another computer and run from that. No limit on file size to be recovered like other 'free' software.

Microsoft Security Essentials
Effective and light antivirus. Free on any legit copy of windows. Don't be put off by what you might have heard about any free antivirus software having poor performance, the current state of free antivirus is that they ALL perform well. This includes AVG, Avast!, MSE and Avira. They are all suitable for your use.
