Essential software for Windows 7

By in Software Reviews on October 8, 2010

Just bought a new computer or need to reinstall software due to hard disk format? Actually Windows 7 already provided some programs after clean install but somehow there are still some softwares that are not included. Here are some essential software that I always make sure to keep it inside my computer.

Imaging program

  • ImgBurn (I use this to convert files to ISO format)
  • Magic Disc (I use this to mount ISO format)

Compressor or archive

  • WinRar (can open most type of compressed file)

Video Player

  • KMP player is my choice as it has good supports for subtitle
  • VLC is the way to go if you want to do some video streaming

Word Processor

  • Microsoft Office obviously

Internet Browser

  • Opera and Mozilla (Opera good for research while Mozilla is my choice for blog posting)


  • Yahoo Messenger

PDF Reader

  • Foxit Reader as it is small in size but fast in speed

Download program

  • IDM (Internet Download Manager) for direct download
  • U-Torrent for torrent

Except than IDM and Microsoft Office, other softwares are absolutely free.
