Hi @CUPs
Whether you have a high end or low end computing machines, I am suggesting you these applications that you may be needing anytime sooner after you have wrapped up your device:

1. A browser - Before you roll up your sleeves and start slinging software around, make sure to snag your Web browser of choice. Using Windows’ default Internet Explorer or Edge browser when you’re accustomed to something else feels like wearing somebody else’s shoes. (Blech.) Firefox and IE 11 are both tremendous options in their own right, but my money’s on Chrome.

2. Ninite - Ninite makes loading up a new computer a breeze. Simply head to the Ninite website, select which free software you’d like to install on your PC—it offers dozens of options, including many of the programs named here—and click Get Installer to receive a single, custom .exe file containing the installers for those programs. Run the executable, and Ninite installs all of them in turn, and it automatically declines the offers for bundled bloatware so many free apps try to sneak in. No muss, no fuss, no hassle. It’s wonderful.

3. Antivirus - Assuming that you plan to connect your PC to the Net or slap a thumb drive into one of its USB ports, you’ll need to have antimalware software installed. Windows 8 ships with Windows Defender activated by default (if your PC’s manufacturer didn’t preinstall premium antivirus trialware), and that’s a lot better than nothing, but Windows Defender isn’t as effective at fighting off the barbarian hordes as third-party options are.

4. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Free - No single antivirus utility offers bulletproof protection, especially against the latest and most clever threats. MalwareBytes Anti-Malware Free was designed specifically to find and eliminate those cutting-edge “zero day” threats. You can’t schedule scans or even use it as a regular antivirus program, but it’s invaluable when you think that something nasty has slipped by your primary antivirus utility.
While you’re browsing the MalwareBytes anyway, be sure to grab the company’s free MalwareBytes Anti-Exploit as well. More and more malware’s being injected via browser exploits these days, but this tool can help you batten down the hatches by adding four additional security layers to your web browser. And while it’s not a standalone antivirus solution, MalwareBytes Anti-Exploit plays nice with the AV software on your PC.

5. PC Decrapifier - Now that you’ve installed security software to protect your PC from invasion, it’s time to clean all the preinstalled junk off your computer. Most boxed PCs come chock-full of bloatware intended to make dough for the PC makers, and you probably don’t need (or want) most of it clogging up your system resources.
That’s where PC Decrapifier comes in. This pint-size wonder program scans your PC, brings up a checklist of the bloatware installed on your machine, and helps you wipe ’em all away in one fell swoop. Yay! A secondary screen lists all of your programs if you want to nuke even more. Ignore it, or just be careful to avoid erasing something important.

6. Benchmarking and stress-testing software - If, on the other hand, you built your own PC bit by bit, you don’t have to worry about bloatware—but you do have to worry about the quality of all those shiny new components. For instance, is your precious new graphics card unstable? The right software can put your PC through the paces and make sure everything is running as it should be.

7. CCleaner - Piriform makes another must-have system tool: the legendary CCleaner. It does all the dirty work required to keep your PC running in tip-top shape, including ditching unwanted cookies, wiping your browser history, deleting unnecessary files, and keeping your Windows Registry sparkling clean.
It’s powerful, but even better, it’s free!

8. Secunia PSI - Programs that aren’t up-to-date are programs with gaping security holes and missing features. Secunia’s Personal Software Inspector hums along silently in the background, automatically keeping your software patched, or—if it’s unable to update an app for some reason—notifying you when updates are available. ’Nuff said. Secunia PSI takes the hassle out of keeping your PC current.

9. VLC Media Player - Windows 10 has a prickly problem: Unlike Windows 7, it’s incapable of playing DVDs out of the box. Your PC might have a DVD-playing program installed if you bought a boxed system, but if not, the simply wonderful VLC media player can play your flicks (and music, and podcats, and…) for free. It can even play (some) Blu-ray discs with a little fiddling.

10. - Now that the workhorses are out of the way, it’s time to dig into handy-dandy extras, starting with Don’t let’s freebie status fool you: This image editor may not have all the bells and whistles of Photoshop, but it packs everything that most people need (even layer-based editing) and costs hundreds of dollars less.
If you’re a graphics professional, and you can’t afford Photoshop but require more than offers, check out GIMP. It has a challenging learning curve, but its capabilities are impressive.

11. Sumatra PDF - Adobe Reader is the go-to PDF reader, but it’s clunky, constantly updating, and frequently targeted by malware peddlers. If you need only basic functionality, go with Sumatra PDF instead. Sumatra lacks the fancy extras found in many full-featured PDF readers, but when it comes to straight-up reading Portable Document Format files, Sumatra PDF is blazing-fast and completely accurate. Oh, and since it’s less ubiquitous than Adobe’s offering, hackers tend to stay away from Sumatra PDF.

12. iTunes or Spotify - Sometimes, blasting tunes is the only thing that makes slogging through a spreadsheet or a stuffed inbox even remotely tolerable. The exact music client you’ll want will depend on whether you’ve already bought into a service, naturally. For musical neophytes I recommend two programs: iTunes and Spotify.
The iTunes Windows client notoriously sucks, but it gets the job done—and that job includes giving you access to a vast universe of premium music downloads and keeping your iPhone’s music library synced with your PC. Spotify, meanwhile, is an all-you-can-eat streaming service with millions of top-tier tunes available, all for free if you don’t mind listening to a few ads.

13. A password manager - The high-profile hack attacks of the past few years have driven the point home: You need strong passwords, and you need a different password for each site you visit. Rather than juggling dozens of alphanumeric codes in your noggin, download a password manager. I recommend Dashlane, LastPass, or KeePass. Let them do the grunt work for you.

14. A productivity suite - PCs excel at helping you Get Things Done—but few of them ship with a productivity suite installed. Fix that, stat!
Legions of people swear by Microsoft’s legendary Office; I do, too. But you don’t have to drop big dollars on Office if you don’t need its myriad bells and whistles. Free—and good—alternatives abound, with OpenOffice (pictured) and LibreOffice being the flagship free-and-open-source options. The online-only Google Docs also rocks. Even if you don’t plan to use a productivity suite regularly, it’s smart to have basic editing capabilities available on your computer.

That's all mate. Cheers!

Bine485818 days ago

das ist individuell total verschieden - kommt drauf an, was Du machen willst !
Windows bringt vom Hause aus schon viele Dinge mit, wofür man keine extra Programme mehr braucht.
Willst Du ins Internet, ist ein Antivirenprogramm unerläßlich.
Als Profi bevorzugst Du natürlich spezielle Programme - z.B. zum Programmieren o.ä.
Irgendwann werden Aufräumprogramme ein Thema, weil sich massig temporäre Dateien usw. ansammeln und der PC/Laptop zu langsam wird.

I disagree with you about this that is antivirus most important program.

PC can work fine without AV program if user know where to go, and what to do on Internet.

AV I use only temporary sometime, to check PC.

- Antivirus+Firewall (Avira, Kaspersky, Avast are good) if you are connected to the Internet, I use Kaspersky Endpoint Security

- Browser (Opera, Firefox, Chrome), I use Opera because it is fast and has some cool features, but you can try Vivaldi

- E-mail client - if you are using emails on daily basis, then go ahead and download email client, I use Mozilla Thunderbird (free), but I recommend also trying Opera Mail (light&fast) or MS Outlook

- Total Commander (if you are working with lots of files, with archives, FTP and large files (Viewer)

- BandiZip (best software for opening&creating archives)

- GOM Player (for playing movies)

- Everything - if you need search your files quickly using regular expressions

- Notepad++ best text editor (you might want also try PSPad)

- Office apps (MS Office (paid), Libre Office (free), WPS Office (free)

- Encrypting files & disc - VeraCrypt

- Password manager - Sticky Password
