Hello again, :)
Y'now, I'm a fan of gadgets, macros and programs that help me do tasks quicker, and in this tip i'd like to share with you my favorite programs I install from day one of getting a new pc. So in no particular order, here they are...
CCleaner is a pc junk cleanup program made by Piriform. You may have read about it in an advert or an article, its a program I always install and recommend and its really easy to use. Its my favorite junk cleaner, with its ability to monitor and clean the junk from every part of my pc, and its ability to easily disable start-up programs, and clean drives. Id use no other. https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download
Speccy is a really useful program again from Piriform which allows you to find out information about your pc instantly. This information is compiled really well layed out so you can find what version your BIOS is, or what the name of your CPU is, where is your RAM slotted and all your hardware. The best way I can describe it is Speccy is all technical info but to an amateur like me, it all still makes perfect sense and its great if you have someone on the phone wanting to know something about your pc, oh i'll just bring up Speccy and there it is.

Driver Booster 2.4
Finding updating drivers a pain? No problem, I kid you not, this is the best driver updating software i've ever seen, thanks to a friend who recommended it to me. Don't trust other driver updater's which claim to be free for a time its normally a con, i've decided to put this in my top7 list just for giving 10 legit free driver updates and ease of use! First once you ask it to, will search your drivers for new updates, then will likely find some for you, and can choose which ones you want to update and does it automatically. Its incredible and fast too. Download Driver Booster 2 4 0 19 Free
Teamviewer is a program which is one of the most trusted and well known remote access programs. This program allows the user to connect with other people who can then see your screen on theirs, or vice versa. Its a big thumbs up from me as I do get problems with my pc and have to get help from friends in the know. It costs nothing for personal use. If your lazy like me you could even use it when your tired of waiting for stuff to install or download, there's nothing better than lying in bed with teamviewer app on your mobile and viewing/interacting with your pc downstairs on your mobile. I have tried other remote access programs I wont name, but this is the most secure. TeamViewer Download for Windows
Google Chrome and Adblock Plugin
A browser that in my opinion beats them all. With Internet Explorer going down the drain, its important to know who the big guns are. Chrome is fast and elegant browser with easy to use bookmarks, shortcuts, complete a clean interface in general. Fed up of pop up adverts for PPI or something, or waiting 10 seconds to skip a youtube advert? It features extensions which are plugins such as adblock and adblock for youtube you can add to make this browser even more formidable when surfing the web. Whats more, its free! https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95346?hl=en-GB
Avast Antivirus Free
Picking an antivirus is never an easy task, there's so many now which want to do so many things for you to save you from possible threats. I picked Avast Antivirus Free over the likes of AVG Free and Norton because they simply hassle you into buying their premium packs! With Avast however there is minimal adverts and you wouldn't know its on your pc some days, but in fact it works just as hard to protect you against threats and nasty viruses, Whichever you choose, the top line is you don't need to pay for the premium things such as internet security, unless you really have to.

Auslogics Disk Defrag
I came across this treasure not long ago when a friend said it was better than your standard Disk Defragmenter and those other ones such as Defraggler. The results are visible when it starts to analyse and defrag your hard drive so that your pc runs faster as all fragments of files will be in the right places. Over time, it gets pretty messy and takes your pc longer to access files and process them. Then along came Auslogics and throughout defragmenting you gets to see exactly what its doing, and at the end you should end up with close to 0% fragmented drives, which is incredible to some ive used which take hours and still leave your drive fragmented.
