To use the computer online it is only really neccessary to have a AV program installed.
I do a LOT of installs.
[doing one now, XP]
My standard method is once XP is installed I install ALL drivers first.
Before I start I go to the manufacturers site & download all of the newest drivers.
I make a folder & name it so I can recognize what it's for.
I then make folders inside that & name them, Chipset, video,LAN,Sound,ETC.
I DL what I'll need & transfer the entire folder to a flash drive
As soon as Windows is up & running I transfer the folder to My Documents.
I then install the drivers.
[I have a pretty good collection of those folders going !]
Once all the drivers are installed I then go online to Google, do a search for AVG free , download it, & install it.
I then install the other programs , [Zip Central, Malwarebytes, Acrobat reader, eyc.
Once I have all installed I do a defrag & then do the Windows updates.
Everybody will have their prefered method but that's what works for me.
