  • What are your first steps after buying a new computer?

    What are the first programs and software that you apply to your computer before anything else? Computer protection? Games? Performance? Or any other type of program? Preferably free but also any important paid for ones.

    Don't use McAfee it's junk.

    If you are using Windows 7 or 8 they do not need any performance or optimization programs
