    Default Essential software list

    Hokay...so I know I format a lot which means that I have to install the same apps over and over again. I've also had a lot of people ask me what programs they should install on their computer to make it run better etc. So what I'm going to do is try to compile a list of usefull apps. If you have any suggestions I'll put them on here. i'm a little brain dead today so I'm sure I'll forget plenty of stuff

    Default U missed something guys !!!!!

    Hi,

    There are some tools that are in the top of their category. I'm afraid that u missed them out. Some are:

    Bit Defender- No.1 rated anti-virus
    7-Zip -- Best compression utility
    and with image files, Daemon tools offer the best features.

    U can include these in your list of softwares.
