Hi everyone, this is my first thread with you guys and just wanted to start out saying hi to whoever readds this.
Now down to the point.
What I am interested to know is, What are the first 10 programs you install when you do a fresh install?
Here is my list
1. Anti-Virus/Security Suite - Usually PCTools Spyware Doctor with Anti-Virus or PCTools ISS
2. Microsoft Office
3. VistaCodec multimedia Codec Packages
4. Daemon Tools
5. WinRAR
6. TeamSpeak & Ventrillo (I am addicted to World Of Warcraft)
7. Auslogics BoostSpeed
8. HD Tune
9. CPU Z
10. uTorrent

Antivirus is always #1. For the rest it depends what you do. I have none of yours except Office 2007. But I have a lot of others - about 25 - 35.

Yeah drivers are a given. I always install all relevant drivers & updates before I install software.
