Recommended Software for new Installations
Posted by Jimmy Wilson on 25 May 2016 09:16 AM

The following software is recommended for all new computers being set up.


Available at Ninite:

  • 7-Zip
  • Adobe Shockwave Player
  • Microsoft Silverlight
  • Java
  • Google Chrome
  • Mozilla Firefox
  • ImgBurn

To install from Ninite, just select the programs you want from their list and click the "Get Your Ninite" button at the bottom of the page. This will download a small executable file. Open the file and grant administrative privileges. Ninite will then begin to download and install all of the programs you selected. Just let it run on it's own, it could take some time. Once it is done, you can close it out or click re-run if any programs had errors.

To update programs already on a machine (installed by Ninite or by hand) follow the same instructions as installing from Ninite.
