My System Specs

Default

I'll have to find a way to automate creating links to all the stuff I use on a very regular basis, but in the meantime, I would advise anyone who uses popular free software to check out http://www.ninite.com.

I recently did a Win re-install and I went to the above site. It lists about 100 popular apps - you check off which ones you want - it creates an installer - you download and run that.

It installs every app you've checked with NO help. It doesn't install toolbars, it clicks "I agree"...etc. Beautiful. AND whenever you run the installer later, it will scan through all of those apps and download/install any that have been updated.

http://www.filehippo.com has way more apps, but isn't as automated.

A few freebies I love: TreeSize. Dropbox, Speccy, MozBackup, Filerfrog, Logmein....

Mike
