Useful Additions to a Newly Formatted HD
« on: August 31, 2009, 07:38:08 PM »
My computer finally died and had to reformat it.

I've begun the long, arduous process of restoring it. Thus far I've gotten AVG (anti-virus), Malwarebytes, Firefox (with AdBlock, Lazarus, Google Preview, Stumble Upon), WinRar.

Any ideas what I'm missing or should add, useful programs, Firefox add-ons, anti-virus things?

(If this is in the wrong board, my sincere apologies)

I have a thread in Elliquiy U, 'resources for a healthy computer'. I highly recommend Avira Antivir over AVG.

As for anything else, that entirely depends on what you want to do, really.

If you don't have registered software, Open Office is a good substitute for MS Office, and has the added benefit of being free.

Vekseid: Will definitely check that thread out, thanks. What do you see as the biggest advantage of Avira?

Oniya: I have a version of MS that came with my computer for free, but thanks. :)

Speed, mostly. Antivir and Nod32 have very little overhead compared with Avast/AVG/Norman, and even less compared to McAfee and Norton.
