Post subject:  the Master Geek List for computer maintenance

Greetings fellow computer geeks.

I will begin switching out my hard drive today. I have simply run out of room since my kids discovered video editing.

I am collecting the programs I want to install right away, such as firewall, antivirus, etc. etc., and I thought it would be handy to have a master list of all recommended programs like this in one place.

I'm running Windows XP SP2, and all these are FREE. So far I have:

    (all program names are links to the download page)
  1. NetVeda SafetyNet firewall - I like the interface on this one better than PC Tools Firewall but that's a good one too.
  2. PC Tools Antivirus
  3. PC Tools Threatfire (added layer of virus and malware protection)
  4. CCLeaner - delete useless files and maintain the registry
  5. Windows Defender - spyware protection
  6. Spybot Search & Destroy - more spyware protection

    And for Firefox users:
  1. Foxmarks - saves and restores all your bookmarks, and you can sync between different computers
  2. MozBackup - backup and restore tool for Firefox and Thunderbird

What additional and/or better programs would you recommend?

By the way, you can find just about anything you're looking for over at MajorGeeks.com. I'm thinking about trying out this all-in-one utility program: Advanced WindowsCare.

A good free photo editor is Photoscape. It doesn't have everything but it is decent. Also yet another antivirus product is Malwarebytes.

Good to see you Phil. We have missed you.
