Seems a lot of us use Ccleaner.
First things for me on a fresh install are: Google Chrome, LastPass, and Xmarks and MSE. Not including the obvious like Flash, Air, Java and GPU drivers.
Everyday essentials include the above, plus, Gimp, Filezilla FTP, Skype, aMSN, Virtualbox, Office 2007, Steam, VLC, and Xchat. That's whether I'm in Windows or Linux.
The Leek's first install.:wave:
...thank you!..try the veal and so forth..
I have been using the same set of tools / software (but newer versions off course ) for last many years, which are:
1. Productivity: MS Office (well the freebies are okay for a normal user, but are rather rubbish for an advance user when one compares them with it)
2. Browsers: FireFox + IE
3. Email: MS Outlook + Mozilla Thunderbird
4. Media: Media Player Classic Home Cinema x64, WMP
5. Security: MSE / Commodo x64 / MWB
6. Utils: Foxit Reader, Image Burn, 7zip, CPUID, Fraps, GPUZ
7. Entertainment: Steam
I have been using Ubuntu along with Windows for a long, but now I am completely moved on to Win 7 Ultimate x64.After Installing windows, I go for these:
Among these I use chrome most.Mozilla less often due to high memory uses.Other essentials are:
ESET Smart Security 5
Media Player Classic
blah blah blah....lolz xD
I hate when that happens.
Chrome or Firefox, MS Office 2010, uTorrent, Skype, TeamViewer, VLC Media Player, InfraRecorder, Flash Player, Java, etc.
Let's see....Malwarebytes, Encrypt on click, unlocker, Ccleaner, Media player classic, VirtualBox, Video inspector, VirtualDub, Open Office...and Flash player, Java.
I actually have multiple mains powered smoke detectors, all complete with continually recharged battery back-ups, and a carbon monoxide detector in the kitchen wired the same way.
So when one goes off, they all do... Splendid, until they become faulty and scare the living jesus out of you overnight when they go off!!! :haha:
Easeus Partition Manager
Installing order in ALL the machines I have, sell, or do up for friends or family:
1. Windows + Drivers

Chrome is usually the first thing that gets on there. Also
