I just bought a new computer. I'll use it for word processing (that is, taking home docs from work to edit), photo editing, DVD burning (for backups as well as making "movies" of short family videos) and web surfing.
What's the must-have software for me? (My old computer is clogged with crap, plus I'm out of the loop tech-wise, so I don't rely just on what I already use.)
Computer comes with: Microsoft® Windows® Vista Home Premium 64-bit, Microsoft Works 9.0, McAfee SecurityCenter 15-month subscription , Roxio Creator, Adobe Acrobat Reader
Internet Explorer or Firefox for surfing (currently use IE), comes with computer I think (part of Windows Vista?)
Nero 7 for DVD burning & movie-making (currently use), from http://www.softpedia.com/progDownload/N ... 28919.html
Microsoft Office for WP (currently use), comes with computer I think (part of Windows Vista?)
Microsoft Photo Editor (currently use), from http://www.megaiq.com/downloads. htm
One Care for viruses, backups etc. (currently use), from http://onecare.live.com/standard/en-us/ ... mputer.htm
Crap cleaner for, well, cleanup, from http://www.ccleaner.com/
Anything else? (Computer is Dell Studio XPS Core i7-920 2.66GHz 512MB ATI Radeon HD4670) Please do assume that I know next to nothing. So, any tips on setting up a new computer are very welcome.
