Software for fresh Windows computer

Before installing anything, I set the pagefile to have the same min and max. I don’t want a fragmented page file and now is my chance to grab a chunk of contiguous disk space. (The free defrag that comes with Windows can’t defrag the pagefile.)

Programs I install on a new Windows machine:

  1. Firefox with:
  2. 7-Zip
  3. TrueCrypt
  4. Multiple versions of IE (for testing)
  5. VIM
  6. Putty
  7. Windows Server 2003 Resource Kit Tools

Set-up steps I take:

  1. Create client data and personal data TrueCrypt files
  2. Move Firefox profile to personal TrueCrypt mount
