  • Essential Software For New Computer

    Its been so long since i have had to setup a computer for a client doing the OS, drives and software.
    With Windows 7 drivers are done automatically and so are most of the essential software such as dvd viewers, burning software etc.

    I'm just wondering what IS needed post OS install these days?
    The only thing i can think of is a virus scanner and browser.
    Is there anything else that is kinda mandatory before shipping it off to the client?

    Suggestions would be great.

    Also if anyone is after some very cheap windows 7 keys PM me.

                          chromium, filezilla, amarok, frozenbubble (damn addictive). Rest of the defaults are do the job.
