Install lots of programs at once
Nothing ruins the fun of unboxing a new PC like the hours you'll spend downloading new software.
Ninite, an easy, free program, can do the heavy lifting for you. It downloads and configures tons of the most-used apps. Just go to the Ninite website and check the boxes next to each program you want to install. Next, click the Get Installer button to download a custom Ninite installer configured just for you. When you run Ninite, it will quietly install and download every program on your list without input from you, avoiding toolbars and other unwanted junk.
