So I'm the token PC guy who fixes my friend and family's PC/laptops. One of the most common thing they ask me to do is to reformat it and put in a new Windows XP. Then I'm told to just install what I think is essential. Now, the first time I did this, I just put in Open Office and then some Avast Antivirus. Now I realise that it would be nice to have a USB pen drive with all of the programs already on it so I don't have to keep faffing about with downloading and then deleting it afterwards. I have a 4gb pen... GIMME SUGGESTIONS.
