    • Matlab! It makes life so easy. (that or one of the other mathematical packages that are around the place, excel included).
    • Paint, though I could live without it I suppose, but most or my report graph ... enhancements are done on Paint ...
    • some kind of media player,
    • firefox,
    • Cool Edit pro (though I haven't used it in a while).
    • VLC player!


    There are more, I'm sure, but these are the ones that first come to mind.

    Wow. Norton is the worst anti-virus ever. Do yourself a favor and delete every single trace of that piece of crap off your computer, and install AVG Free.

    I agree. Norton 2004 was rubbish. I paid 80.00 for it and then it asked me to rebuy it for 50.00 when the licsence ran out. AGV is one of the best kits you can get your mitts on for nought. But at uni I have to use McAfee, any views on that product? I thinks its ok but still prefer AGV which I have installed on my PC at home - the one I am using now lol

    Everything norton sucks. I was trying to set up a simple network on my mother's laptop and every other second you get a message "your connection is insecure, would you like to activate blah blah blah, NO. Then a warning message comes out every other second.

    Another program to stay away from is ZoneAlarm. It will annoy the hell out of you!!! Anything that has to access the internet such as games or updates, will be blocked unless you accept the stupid message. It has a "Remember this option" checkbox if you accept or decline, but it doesn't remember your selection! *SHIVER* Forget that.....
