What is the essential program package for after Windows format?

After formatting a computer, you need to install a bunch of applications that must be integrated into our computer. There is a lot of debate on this. Anyway, let's consider the following one of the most relevant applications after formatting Windows.

Office or other office software

It is convenient to have an office automation program on your computer, as it will be very useful at some point. Undoubtedly, the most recommended option is to install Microsoft Office on Windows, but if you can't afford this program, we recommend the Open Office alternative.



Regardless of which option you choose, remember to install some of these programs just in case format your computer, as they are absolutely essential for doing both academic and professional work.

Install a file compressor / decompressor after Windows format

Many files are distributed directly in compression formats such as Zip or Rar. These compressed files require the use of programs designed to handle them. Likewise, you will need to have a program of these features, for various equipment functions.

In this case there are several options, in any case we recommend the WinRar or 7Zip program because we consider them the best options you can find.

Video player

Today it is more and more common to consume multimedia content through movies or series. Although most of the solutions are seen via Streaming such as Netflix or other similar platforms, it doesn't hurt have a good video player for certain circumstances.

We can think of two prospects, one of them that although it no longer receives updates, is still one of the best players and we refer to Media Player Classic. On the other hand, we recommend you the free lifetime VLC player which you can download from the videolan website. This tool has excellent performance and multiple functions.



Browser

Windows default browser is not the most popular among users. That is why it is important to know which browser is best to use on our PC. In this regard, it is better install an alternative that may be more optimal in terms of performance.

In relation to internet browsers, there are three great alternatives to the default option of Windows, we are referring to Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox and Opera, each of them was a great alternative to install in case you are going to format a computer.

PDF reader

PDF files are very common, they are one of the main ways to distribute manuals and various types of content. Likewise, many companies are known to use this type of format, so the most convenient thing is to have a reader PDF.

In relation to this there are many options, in any case the most recommended are the Adobe PDF reader, also known as Adobe Acrobat Reader and on the other hand we also have the alternative, Foxit Reader. Both programs will do the job effectively.


Antivirus software is essential after formatting Windows

The latter, even if it seems crazy to say it, is optional, why do we say it? Indeed, since Windows 10 already has a very good antivirus program, we refer to Windows Defender, an application that in most cases will protect us from any malicious software that may appear. You can even remove viruses manually without the need for a conventional antivirus.


In any case, if you wish to use another antivirus program, we recommend alternatives such as Avast (which has a free option), Norton Antivirus or Kaspersky, options which are also very functional to protect our computer.
