    it would be nice, if somebody can develop universal installer ie one installer which install all the free and open source software like

    all 5 browsers ie chrome, IE, FF, Safari, Opera
    adobe flash
    adobe acrobat reader
    VLC
    Open office
    skype
    avg anitvirus
    winrar
    printer/scaner drivers
    wordweb free dictionary
    etc

    A number of problems with this:
    1. Who chooses which applications? Most members of this forum would have a different list.
    2. There are a number of difficult technical problems. Creating an installer for multiple applications is problematic at best.
    3. I am sure that most of the producers of these applications would object and consider it illegal.

    Not going to happen.

    For reinstalling windows and keeping software there is Repair Install and this:

    Windows 7 Installation - Transfer to a New Computer

    System Preparation Tool - Use to Customize Windows

    Otherwise, what derekimo suggested is a great option as well if you have a fresh installation (and don't want to do the above) with the programs you want to install all in a simple manner.
