Due to the nature of my system as an ever changing user support testbed, the actual programs I have running varies

Today the total stands at 143 installed programs

Unfortunately I can't get a Screenshot to show the complete list and I'm too lazy to type out a list .

But to give some idea I have 3 complete Office suites Office 2007 Office 2010 and openoffice 3.11 complete with a lot of addons, There are about 25 separate entries for Visual studio, and five or six browsers, oh and about ten image editors/managers

I developed a system during all the Beta/RC on Windows 7.

First thing is AV and FW followed by a browser. Then any drivers that need updating, (not as many with the later builds ). Then my Outlook, (gotta stay in touch )

I create a weekly backup of my start menu program list, (all programs are held in the all programs area not the User Roaming area), which I restore to any new OS install. This gives me a set of dead start menu links which works as a good reminder of what I need to install - As they are installed the links become live again, I tend to install as required rather than a specific install session.

  • Winamp
  • Firefox
  • Winrar
  • Drivers (Nvidia and sound driver)

I feel your pain.

Dir /o:n /b /s C:\Users\Antman\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\*.lnk >> E:\Desktop\ListApps.txt

I am going to save that - wouldn't want to have to type it again.
