One of my brothers got his Windows eaten by viruses (again). I got it (computer) into roughly working shape for starters and convinced him (brother) that Internet connection is really good and useful thing to have. At least for antivirus updates, if not anything else.
So I am preparing for second trip there tomorrow and going over list of software I must get on that computer so it he they don’t bug me too much.
I think I will go with Avast Home Edition. I hear decent feedback about that one and free ensures it won’t go dead because of neglected payment.
CCLeaner, shortcut with automated cleanup, or maybe scheduled.
MyDefrag as screensaver.
Probably gmail – skips need for proper mail software. Heard new registrations require mobile phone activation now, might have to go with local co-branded version instead.
Over my dead cold body.
None. As useful as Comodo Firewall is for me, installing it for home user is trouble unless I am willing to spend next week(s) educating. Am not.
Local factor decides, so ICQ with one of fitting clients.
Patches, patches, patches. Not all but every single security-related one.
Ouch, this is going to be some boring Friday. Think I missed something? What are your picks for installing on [remote] family PC?
