  • An antivirus. Avast?
  • Firefox and what I need to get it running
  • Chrome
  • Last.fm
  • Winamp
  • MP3Tag
  • Notepad++
  • Putty
  • TortoiseSVN
  • Git and associated stuff for efficient Git setup
  • Misc dev stuff: Python, NodeJS,
  • Filezilla
  • GOM Player
  • VLC
  • A PHP compiled help file
  • PowerISO
  • Microsoft Office if the wife needs it
  • Photoshop
  • SuperCopier
  • uTorrent & GreedyTorrent with launcher
  • Classic Start Menu from Classic Shell
  • Re-enable the Quick Launch toolbar

    For a free anti-virus, I'd suggest Microsoft's Security Essentials. I'd say it's better than Avast :)

    I recommend SuperAntispyware for keeping your computer running in tip top shape. It's free and works better than any paid piece of software I've used that is supposed to do the same thing.
