    When it comes to your computer, you need to have a couple of software or applications that will help your computer to run in its optimum performance.

    Can you share what are yours? We could learn something new from each other.:D

    As for me, here are the ones that I can't use my computer without:

    Anti-Virus - Anything available - currently using Avira Free Anti-Vir
    CCleaner - temporary files, cache and registry cleaner
    Auslogics Disk Defrag - Defragmentation software to optimize computer speed
    Nero - all-in-one media software capable of burning and viewing videos
    Codecs especially DivX and CCCP - for playing all kind of media formats
    Winamp - for music
    VortecIRC and Yahoo Messenger - chat clients
    Mozilla Firefox - Primary Browser
    uTorrent - for my weekly video downloads
    GIMP - graphic editing software
    ACDsee - picture viewer
    Free Download Manager

    I think that's all I need to install first if ever I will use a new PC.
