I build or rebuild a lot of computers for friends and family. I'm looking to create a list of default applications for the installation process. On a new Windows box, what are your default installs right after the OS?
So far I have (not in any order):
- Adobe Reader
- Adobe Flash Player
- Adobe Shockwave
- All the windows updates
- Micrsoft Security Essentials
- Open Office
I'm sure I'm missing a bunch of stuff that could be useful. I know there will be some differences based on computer usage (example skype for video conferencing, utorrent for downloads). If you install another browser, and various add-ons throw it on your list.
If you install it, I want to know about it.
