If you just spent hundreds or thousands of dollars on a new pc but are not happy with the software that came with it, my guess is you do not want to spend more money on software that you are not sure about.

Look no further!  Our recommendations here today will save you hundreds of dollars, if you were to buy them from a leading vendor such as Microsoft. 3.1.1 is the equivalent of Microsoft Office 2003.  So save your hundreds and get a Free Office suite for your machine.

Avira Antivir Antivirus is a very thorough and computer resource light application.  It will keep your machine safe from virus and other malware.  Scan your system on a weekly basis.

VLC is an open source multimedia player that plays virtually anything, including DVDs.  If Windows Media player doesn’t play your media file, this will most likely play it.

Mozilla’s Thunderbird is the answer to the email application you have been waiting for.  Chances are, you are already using Mozilla Firefox for your web browser.  If you are not, you may want to try that.

This list is a good start to your software needs for your new or used pc.  If you would like help with your computer, you can contact us at Pixel Perfect Group, or just check the Contact page above.
