There is everything from tools like ZoomIt which allow you to magnify yours screen to Autoruns which helps you identify which programs can run on your computer automatically. This is deffinately a set of tools that i could not live without. These tools are like the swiss army knife of IT Administration.

Microsoft Hyper-V Server

Microsoft Hyper-V Server is a stand-alone hyper-visor based virtualization product. It does not have a graphical user interface, or the ability to add other server roles. However, it does have the ability to host multiple server (and non-server) guest operating systems. It is available from Microsoft as a free download. I currently use this software in my networking environment and, it is a key aspect to daily operations.

Notepad++

There is no comparison between Notepad++ and the standard Microsoft notepad text editors. Notepad++ is a notepad replacement text editor and works wonders whether you are editing simple text documents or writing advanced scripts. It supports syntax highlighting for many scripting and programing languages. I can't say enough good about this program and it is one of the first pieces of software I always install on my workstations.
