So... Fresh Install... Lets change it a bit

Usually when i format my hard drive i have a, sort of, "list" that i follow for installing programs that i feel are beneficial to the full Windows 7 experience. They include (but not limited to)

  1. Mozilla Firefox
  2. Utorrent
  3. Power Iso

Just wanted to kinda mix things up and give it a new feel. Curious to everyones answer... And I am bored

Also, don't forget about Ninite Easy PC Setup - Silent Unattended Install Multiple Programs At Once - a great way to install multiple programs like Firefox, iTunes, Acrobat, and more in one click.

Upper onces are must have I think, (I'm not saying FF, avast, but like browser, AV...)Oh, and I forgot, after installing above mentioned, IMAGE, the best way to refresh the system from viruses, experimenting or trying programs that will be installed in certain point of time...Long live imaging, if it's clean that is, hehe

If they pay for it, sure, but in other case, hmmm...I would prefer like chilling with beer or something, or hanging around, it can be boring you now, especially when you are at someones home, someone that you almost don't now, standing just to you and asking how it is possible my PC to have viruses, friend of mine scan this PC like 6-7 months ago and it was ok, and what are you doing now, and now, and now... and you can't say no to the kids, when they are asking you, would you please install this game, and this, and this....and after like 3 and more hours, you are like having nervous breakdown...oh, now I'll smoke one cigarete, just remembering that,huh...
