I think it will be informative if we could have a forum to discuss/recommend some excellent freeware programs. This will especially benefit new/inexperienced users.

So, I'll start it off with some real gems (along with links where one can download each program):

1. Onyx - a venerable, proven program for doing some disk cleaning, and Repairing Permissions. Link:

Note there is a specific version for each Mac OS.

2. VLC - The absolute, best video player out there. Like Onyx, it has been around for quite some time. Link:

3. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware - A very good program for detecting and removing some "ad-related" garbage. Link:

4. AppCleaner - Another gem. It makes COMPLETELY removing an application easy. Link:

5. EasyFind - A very good search program. I like it better than Spotlight, especially since it uses much less resources. Link:

6. GrandPerspective - An excellent program for seeing graphically how much disk space various files/folders are taking up. Link:
