SnapFiles is a web site that offers what it considers the most popular freeware and shareware software programs. Naturally, I like free when possible, but there are many times where shareware makes sense. I've found that A/V freeware programs are usually not as easy to use and it's worth paying a few bucks. Shareware tends to be less expensive than the standard commercial applications. It's also more likely that you'll have a support line to call than you would with a freeware program. Take a look at both lists. You'll certainly be amazed at the diversity of applications and you may one day save a lot of money.
