Whats a good Cocktail?

By John_4 ·
So where I work we use what we call the Cocktail when we reinstall an operating system, or just when we build a system, and we are trying to make it the best group of software we can get, I will list all of the things we use and why we use them, and if you have anything you think we should change or if there is something out there that you don't think I don't know about PLEASE post!! (all software in our cocktail is FREEWARE)

1. Mozilla Firefox - Internet Browsing
2. Adobe Reader/Player - Self Explanatory
3. OpenOffice - Free MS Word
4. VLC Media Player - the codec/good player
5. AVG - Anti Virus
6. ADAWARE - Anti Adaware
7. Spybot - Anti Spyware
8. Malwarebytes - antimalware/scan and remove viruses

Once again if you know of any other good things, please post!!

Not to be a stick in the mud but I don't believe that AVG and MalwareBytes are not free for commercial/corporate use. They are only free for home use.

AVG 9.0 is free...we offer it on our website, and it works just fine, and becuase im lazy and don't want to post to the other things, so is adaware and spybot, and the free versions work just fine

If they are used in a non-commercial or non-educational setting, then yes it is free for use.

If you are putting the programs on commercial or educational systems, than you are in violation of the licensing agreement.

Edited to add; From the AVG site;

1. Definitions.
a. Authorized Purposesmeans (i) personal, noncommercial purposes in the case of Software known as AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition and AVG LinkScanner, and (ii) your personal purposes or the internal business purposes of you and your Affiliates in the case of other Software.

Yes, yes

I agree with you. and we don't put them on any company computers, but we do put them on home computers so technically it is for non commercial, and we don't charge for the programs so :) loopholes i guess, lol
