What is the first thing you install on a new windows system?
Before installation I have split the hard disk into at least 2 partitions although partition management is not the topic here. After a clean Windows installation I also tweak Windows for performance depending on the Windows version - using either Windows Control panel options or some VB scripts and registry tweaks. Then these are the programs I install Windows updates including Microsoft Security updates italic and Windows service packs italic using Windows update . italic Proprietary drivers Any existing drivers for devices. Driver updates I use a program like Advanced driver updater italic (trial Advanced Driver Updater ) or IOBit Driver Booster italic (trial Free Windows 1 Drivers Update PC Drivers ) which automatically download the latest versions of drivers for all system devices. While only the full versions automatically install drivers they can save a lot of time looking up drivers. (For example after a recent clean install of Windows 8 the drivers for 3 devices were not being automatically installed by Windows and the devices simply showed as Base System device in the Control Panel. The process to work out the correct drivers is tedious - it takes figuring out the Vendor and Hardware ID and then manually looking for the right drivers which takes a lot of time. IOBIT Driver Booster did this task in the click of a button. As some tech support experts may guess they were the drivers for an SD card reader.) Antivirus Microsoft Security Essentials italic has improved a lot and is enough nowadays. (free Free Virus Protection with Microsoft Security Essentials s ) Then there is some software which is probably just as essential namely Java (free) Directly from Sun website. ( Download Free Java Software s ) Adobe Flash player (free) Directly from Adobe website. ( Adobe Flash Player s ) Essential utilities WinRAR (free) Windows does supportpressed folders but this is better and supports many more formats. ( WinRAR archiver a powerful tool to process RAR and ZIP files ) IrfanView + plugins (free) The best freeware utility for viewing pictures. ( one of the most popular viewers worldwide ) CCleaner (free) A handy tool for cleanup and some system tweaks. ( CCleaner - Free Download - Piriform s ) Revo Uninstaller (free) An uninstallation manager which also monitors new installations. Not totally essential but useful. ( Revo Uninstaller ) Thenes the browser and office applications Mozilla Firefox (free) I don tend to use IE as Mozilla is better in my opinion. ( Browse Freely s ) Firefox add-ons Mostly privacy-protecting ones such as HTTP everywhere italic (free) at the bare minimum. Extra ones include AdBlock plus italic (free) BetterPrivacy italic (free) and Disconnect italic (free) . ( italic Add-ons for Firefox italic s ) italic Microsoft Office (trial) It usually an essential for most users. Adobe Acrobat Reader (free) Another office essential. ( Adobe Acrobat Reader DC s ) Finally for home use some people might optionally install multimedia applications such as Media players such as iTunes italic (free iTunes - Download iTunes Now s ) Winamp italic (free It really whips the llama's ass! ) JRiver Media Center italic (trial JRiver Media Center - Download s ) MediaMonkey italic (free MediaMonkey Download ) etc. based on personal choice. Video player + codec packs Media Player Classic italic is a great choice and contains both codecs and a video payer. (free Downloads ub7 MPC-HC s ) Nero For CD burning. (trial Nero 216 Platinum - Award-winning all-rounder s ) Skype For making phone calls. (free Download Skype for Desktop Computer | Skype s ) eBook reader IceCream reader italic (free Ebook Reader free MOBI and EPUB reader for Windows ) and Adobe Digital Editions italic (free Download | Adobe Digital Editions s ) are my top choices. What not to install Firewall Windows Defender has improved significantly in the latest Windows versions. I previously install ZoneAlarm italic but it not as essential any more. Defrag tools Windows has improved its disk management and it only slows down system performance. Registry cleaning tools Same as above not needed.
