ere is a list of tools and programs that I personally use to maintain websites. These tools are freeware and can be downloaded at download.com.
Filezilla FTP program - This ftp program does all the basics. It is open source and comes in two formats. You can use the installation version or the exe version. This is handy if you are on a pc that does not allow write access. Please Check out the Downloads area to download this.
Editplus - Text editor, there are many similiar versions floating around. This is the most popular as universities in melbourne recommend this to their students. This is a lightweight editor that supports basic html tags. It has colours and line numbers. This tool is also useful as a log viewer.
Putty - if your on linux/unix based server then you will want to have this program to help you connect via ssh. SSH is particuliar useful to run scripts directly of the server and compress and move files between directories.

CPU Tester - This tool will test the raw speed of your processor.
