As recommended and tested by Level 6 Networks and Software Development students at Mallow College, you won’t find easier and better than the fastest way to get a new computer or a friend’s computer up to grade with essential legal software for free. Simply select the programs you want. Download the automatic installer and let it run. It will automatically install your complete selection while ensuring that there are no toolbars or other extra junk software installed. will “start working as soon as you run it; not bother you with any choices or options; install apps in their default location; say no to toolbars or extra junk; install 64-bit apps on 64-bit machines; install apps in your PC’s language or one you choose; do all its work in the background; install the latest stable version of an app; skip up-to-date apps; skip any reboot requests from installers; use your proxy settings from Internet Explorer; download apps from each publisher’s official site; verify digital signatures or hashes before running anything; work best if you turn off any web filters or firewalls; save you a lot of time!”.
