What programs do you always install?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
Just curious to know what security and troubleshooting programs others out there install on their rig when they build a PC or laptop. What do you do and why (links would be great)?

I usually install:
Spybot
Microsoft Esentials
Kaspersky
OverKill

Firefox
Thunderbird
uTorrent
Foobar2K

There's other stuff I need to work on websites and whatnot but it's not required, so these are probably the base 4 I'd stick with.

EDIT - Oops, forgot about;

Avast
K-Lite Codec Pack

All of my overclocking/monitoring tools are self-executables and saved on my thumb drive for mobility purposes.

Microsoft Esentials, honestly i hate the program, eats alot of resources and barely does your PC any justice.

anyways, I Install Safari and Chrome (But preferably Safari).
Avast Free
Drivers
Steam
Winamp
Skype
Adobe Flash Player
Sony Vegas 9.0
