  1. Few things I think every PC should have.

    Document creation. Open Office, free. MS Office, not free

    Media playback. VLC Media Player, free, can play DVDs. If will use a BluRay player, you will want to use the software that comes with it as VLC cannot play BluRay disks.

    For music, Media Player or iTunes is good.

    Movie Organizing, I like My Movies Database.

    Photo, Image organizing, editing. My favorite is Google Picassa, maybe also Infranvew for editing.

    Anti-Virus, Avira Antivir, Avast, AVG Free, all good.

    Spyware (non-resident, meaning you run it when needed), Malwarebytes.
