do you have Microsoft Office/Open Office type packages?

Some security? Printer drivers?

You'll probably need Adobe reader etc too but usually I just gt on with what I am doing and then realise I need something and download it then.

What you need is it lets you plick and install multiple applications in one go.

Here is a premade set

Remove Norton or McAfee and replace them with Defender or Avast.

After that it depends on what you are going to do with the laptop

I use BT security as I get it free with my Infinity contract, check in case your supplier does the same if it isn't BT.

Its got Windows 8 on it, as far as I can see the Microsoft office thing you can get a free trail for a month, did download Adobe flash player, I use laptop for chatting to people through forums, music, fb and emails, I connected my printer, as I scan in documents to send via email as well
