Hey All,

I recently lost my collection of downloads. I'm trying to restore most of em myself, I had an older backup but lost recent things. However trying to remember all the files I had is hard, this is where I hope you guys can help.

I'm looking for any suggestion for utilities or programs you use. Stuff to repair things (like WinSock fix) or to help optimize things.

Thanks,
Mike

I have a really good "Installs List" or programs used. Some might not be apropriate, as in you know. If you want the list, I'll send it too you.

I really think it depends on how you use things. As they say, different strokes for different folks.

One could make a case for Registry Cleaners, but there is a big debate if those are even worth using.

Some of the things I could suggest which don't seem to be listed are these:

Ccleaner
Diskeeper (or similar)
Norton Ghost (or similar)
Hijackthis

Set most things to auto-update, especially Windows. I recommend using Microsoft Update rather than Windows Update, this way you get Office and Windows updates downloaded/installed automatically.

Safe computing is always good as well ;)

For tweaks and such, probably visit that thread.

No use now, I've written the the drive. Besides I've gotten most of it back from an older copy I had on my external, I just had to update a few things.

I think I got most of it back. It's much more organized now.
