WinDirStat

If you are running out of space and need to work out what is clogging up your HDD this gives a great representation of your filesystem.

My list is exactly the same minus VLC and Firefox.

Instead of VLC, I download a media player codec so that Windows media player can run the same type of files that you would download VLC for. The performance is practically the same as VLC.

As for Firefox, I simply use Chrome. I'm signed on to my gmail account so that my bookmarks sync whenever I access a new computer, tablet, or phone.

In my case since I use GNU/Linux I install GNU/Linux Mint. Steam. Build-essentials. Code::Blocks LMMS and Lamp

For the sake of performance, security, and functionality, I don't recommend a specific program, but rather an operating system that isn't Windows. I would suggest Linux. If you're new to Linux, Mint is a great distro to start in. I currently use Manjaro, myself, but that's because of personal preferences.

Yeah, I actually tried mint before but I have some music hardware that always encounters compatibility issues. With windows, all my stuff just works. Definitely get your point though and would like to be able go back to trying Linux at some stage.

Foobar2000 is a great music player, but it may be too much for the average user. Clementine and MusicBee are worth a try if you're looking for something simple.

It's been referred to as the "linux of music players"- its amazing but most people can't be assed to set it up properly, or want something simpler.

First, a plug for Ninite. Easy way to install a lot of good programs.

My essentials are:

  • Firefox
  • Spotify
  • MediaMonkey
  • GIMP
