New Computer

Just a quick question, I just want to get an idea of people's differing views...

When you re-install windows or buy a new computer, what software do you install (ie. office suite, AV, firewall, systemworks, etc.)

ZoneAlarm, AVG or Avast (not both on one computer), Microsoft Defender, RegScrub, CCleaner.

Then (if needed) SpyBot,Spyware Blaster, a2 Squared, Ewido, AdAware, RootKitReveller.

eBay Toolbar,Tautology, PHTR Web Graphics, El Reg Alerts.

All have their uses, depending on your own personal thoughts and requirements.

I do things in a similar order to Fruit Bat /\0/\ and also install utility software with the firewall and AV.
