i am running wi98se and using aol 9.0 all these programs listed i would call essential for my needs but is there any others that i need??
Only you know what your needs are, thus, only you can decide what you need.
Unfortunately we can't read your mind.
Your question was a bit like "how long is a piece of string?.
You need to ask yourself why you need a program and how often, if at all, you will use it.
I'm sure that there are lots of different viewpoints out there.
For what it's worth I'm of the lean and mean school of thinking.
I have the most minimal number of programs which I know I'll use. If I identify a new need, then I'll install it - but only if I know that I'll find a use for it - not just for the sake of having it on my PC.
I firmly believe that the more programs I have, the more likely I'm going to encounter problems because of clashes between programs. So why invite trouble?
thanks guys but my spyware progs anti virus progs and mailwasher progs are ok its more things like shockwave and macromedia that sort of stuff and is there a program to view ram files but not real player??
