    I check out al the good softwares, all the time !
    but although norton 360 has improved by leaps and bounds others have not !!
    Even my favorite Sophos is not as good as it was !

    On some scenarios Sumatra is better as its open source and supports many other formats like epub too.
    foxit is also nice.

    well, the thread gives out an impression that folks here format their boxes way too often?

    i try to avoid formatting as far as possible. had a really hard fight with the it guys over it 2 years ago. they wanted to format. :no:

    list of sw for me:
    7z
    foobar2000
    codec packs
    winscp
    oracle
    toad
    netbeans
    fiat eper

    i wouldnt want to have a prep disc. today's necessary software is mostly tomorrow's bloatware.

    it is an extensive wastage of time. plus, you lose data. esp app data.

    I also don't format.. !! it is actually a waste of time and effort of keeping your OS with your customizations...
    for experiments I use a hdd which is meant for that !! the main OS remains there for me to come back and then there is VM's :D

    Post fresh install and installing mobo drivers this is what i suggest :
    Change mouse settings. Pointer Speed to max, “wheel” to 15-10 or whatever screen size I work on.
    Disable UAC and Recycle Bin pop-up on delete message.
    Disable paging (only if you have more than 3GB RAM)
    Reduce wait time for windows to load to 0 seconds.
    Anti-virus : Avast mostly OR Avira.
    MS-office (Disable updates, pin word and excel/whatever to Start Menu)
    Java/flash player (IE/non-IE, Firefox and opera OR/AND Chrome)
    Adobe/winrar, Idm, Foobar/k-lite (It’s not a hog!) Skype/yahoo, ImgBurn/Teamviewer.
    Bitorrent. Tweak it (Make download folders in non-system drive.)
    Register anti-virus/change office theme to black, switch off MS office updates.
    Wallpaper/Firefox tweaking.
    Make useful shortcuts on desktop.
    Disable other “action center” notifications.
    Activate windows.
    Ccleaner/defraggler/revo-uninstaller/Tera copy
    Edit start-up items in Ccleaner, run it once & start defrag.

    Nice list there. Foxit is lighter than adobe but adobe is better, foxit fails to display images in PDF files sometimes (happened with me once)
