    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.
