Let my laziness glow in the dark. After installing Windows and drivers, and Windows updates if applicable, I install the security apps. Apply my massive reg file. Then, I do not install anything until I need to use it.

  • Avast!
  • PHP 5
  • My SQL
  • No-IP
  • Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.5
+ games when I feel like playing them
