Windows 7: Fresh x64 RC Install Top 10

13 May 2009   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64 OEM
Fresh x64 RC Install Top 10

Hi guys - I have been running the 64bit beta since it came out and generally speaking, I love W7. There have been some snags here and there - like with the right version of iTunes and such, but nothing major for me.

Now it's time to load the RC on a clean clear VelociRaptor.

Aside from updated drivers, what are your top 10 applications to load up after a 64 bit install?

Mine start with:

Kaspersky AV (came with the MoBo)

What are YOUR first installed applications?
