5 Essential Software! A Windows User Must Have Installed

Essential Softwares
Written by Wamiq Ali

Now-a-days many computer users make their systems a complete piece of junk just because they don’t know that essential things can be done just by using some software rather than trying a whole bunch of software to pile up computer with messy data. I am going to share some good and reliable piece of software which can be used by a technical as well as non-technical person to achieve required goals depending upon his needs.

KM Player – Minimal and Fast Media Player So Far:

KM PlayerI basically use KM player to fulfill my daily media need. It is really a smart and very good media player with capability to play almost any type of media file. Almost all the plugins are pre-given with the installer package of KM player. It has a equalizer section at the left bottom pane of the player where settings icon appear, to control the outcome of music or any movie being played. You can even control the color output of the video through the normal video settings. Full screen mod can be set to stretched one vertically or else can be set to fit to screen also. All the features of this player are damn cool.

Also, you can search for some cool online content or TV channels through the KM Player home. Link

CCleaner – A good program to Clean Junk Files and Recover System Speed:

Ccleaner Main InterfaceCcleaner a worthy software when it comes to it’s speed, it’s fast results, it’s perfect outcome and a perfect smoother experience of computer than before. It is actually the freeware software using which you can easily remove up the junked data space either taken by Registry, Software or Internet temporary files.

If you have to accidently hand your laptop to any third-party source then instead of opening every program and cleaning the history you can make use of this software to clean your entire computer’s history.

This software can show you all those programs which have to start at every start-up and any unnecessary program can be truncated by you from the start-up list. Link

Ready Boost – Built In Windows Seven Software to Increase You System Speed:

readyboost windows sevenReady boost a most important feature to be offered in Windows Vista or next released Windows versions. I know that it isn’t a third party software but it is a damn essential feature to be enabled when you are using Windows at the high performance, in the case if you have those traditional spinning hard-disks then this feature will surely help you to get maximum juice out of your computer. However, using SSD’s can help you also but all people out there don’t have SSD’s installed in their systems.

To use this simply plugin your flash drive which may be 2.0 of speed. Then Right click the flash drive from my computer and go to Ready boost tab. Thus, here you can dedicate your flash drive space to be used as cache drive which has faster writing and reading capabilities.

Try this feature and then comeback to tip your hat 😛

7-zip – Must have extraction and compression utility:

7-zip utilityI don’t use this software so much but last time i used it and then found it to be equally useful as Winrar is for me. We being the internet users have to download a large number of files which are most of the times compressed in some archive format. To get the required files you need to decompress them once downloaded. Surely, this smart utility software named 7-zip is going to be great tool for you, as it is capable of extracting almost all the formats like:

  • Packing / unpacking: 7z, XZ, BZIP2, GZIP, TAR, ZIP and WIM
  • Unpacking only: ARJ, CAB, CHM, CPIO, CramFS, DEB, DMG, FAT, HFS, ISO, LZH, LZMA, MBR, MSI, NSIS, NTFS, RAR, RPM, SquashFS, UDF, VHD, WIM, XAR and Z.

Move Forward and Give it a try. Link

Antivirus Software – Most Important Step to take:

Secure ComputerAntivirus software installation is the most essential step to be taken these days since spammers and attackers are more active then ever. You surely need a good peace of antivirus to make yourself secure from such bad attempts of people to breach your privacy by exploiting your system. Their are majority of antivirus software out their but my personal good experience is with Eset Smart Security. You can also try Microsoft Security Essentials. Whatever you go for, first read some reviews of users regarding the product. After making an idea about the reputation of antivirus and depending upon the sensitivity of your work done at system you should go for the best choice. Whatever you go for, you should keep in mind that only you are responsible for whatever you do at computer or whatever happens to your computer, so it will be best that you may choose such an antivirus which may suit your needs from every aspect depending upon seriousness of your work done at computer.
