Hi Everyone,

I have a new Dell XPS laptop with windows 10 and was wondering what you would do to set up your new laptop?

I was just thinking of downloading windows updates, installing an antivirus software and ccleaner to remove bloatware.

What free antivirus would you suggest? Firewall? Are you a fan of ccleaner?

Anything else you can think of that would be useful?

Thanks for the help!

Thinking of the bloatware problem - both dell's and windows' ... I just came across this today ... it might be worth a try (some reviewer thinks highly of it):

"The PC Decrapifier (free)
Screenshot: The PC Decrapifier
When you buy a new laptop and it’s loaded with bloatware—or you’re concerned about the amount of seemingly unnecessary programs on the Windows system you’ve been using for some time—install The PC Decrapifier. This incredibly useful utility will give you recommendations, based on other users’ experiences, about which items you should keep and which items you should trash. You’ll sleep easier knowing you didn’t accidentally delete a device-critical application."
