    What do you have to have on your computer when you reformat?

    Newsbin
    Bitlord
    Daemon Tools
    VLC Player
    Ashampoo Suite
    Slysoft Suite
    Office Suite
    Peer Guardian
    Quick Par
    AIM
    Antivirus
    Itunes
    Ruckus Player
    FairUse4MP (makes Ruckus files transferable)
    Counter Strike Source

    Those are my MUST HAVES. What do you guys have to put on immediately after a fresh install?
