    Top 5 Windows software in your school

    What are your top 5 Windows software/applications that you use in your school? I am asking so whichever software comes up the most I can either look into learning it or if I have knowledge on it I can improve. Also for this I would like to know the top 5 that the children/students use and not the teachers.

    Ahh do you mean top 5 'problem' software or just what software is installed the most, or what's used the most? Three very different things! (Well here it is :-) )

    SIMS should get a mention too, I guess.

    EDIT: No it shouldn't, the students don't use it.
