I'm reinstalling Windows and associated software for my computer.

I have Windows 7 Pro. I want to install:

7Zip
Chrome
MSE
Macrium Reflect
Speccy
Spybot S&D (which version?)

any others that I may have missed?

Spybot is old and effects the host file so wouldn't use that malware bytes is a better option. What about vlc video player

You might want to take a look at Ninite. You can choose the programs you want, no junkware with them! To update all the apps you installed with Ninite, just run the installer again, everything you installed will be updated to latest version.

I have VLC player, I was looking for system utilities like malware removal/system backup tools.

For malware removal tools I use Malwarebytes and at times I use Eset Free online scanning tool.

Backup and or clone is done with Macrium Reflect.

You can get all of these from their own sits. Don't need a special program to get them.

Malwarebytes | Free Anti-Malware & Malware Removal

Free Virus Scan | Online Virus Scan from ESET ESET

Both have Premium versions if you choose to buy them.

I installed Malwarebytes but all I get is the Premium trial edition. I clicked the link from Layback Bear.

I have ADWCleaner, CCleaner, Macrium Reflect and MSE.
