Whether you have just bought yourself a new computer system, or have completed a clean install of a new operating system, there is an online application that can make installing free software easy. Called Ninite you just select the software you want and it will be installed for you. On their site the people at Ninite describe their program as:

Ninite runs on Windows XP/Vista/7 and works in the background 100% hands-free. We install apps with default settings and say “no” to browser toolbars and other junk. All we do is install the latest versions of the apps you choose. Not even Ninite is installed.

There is browser software like Firefox, Chrome, Opera, plus anti-virus software such as Avast, AVG, MS Essentials, plus more software for burning, messaging, media, imaging, documents, runtimes, file sharing and utilities. All in one convenient location.

Give it a try and see what you think.

Comments welcome.
