I just did a fresh install of Windows XP Pro on my computer and installed SP3, Flash, Java, VLC media player, Open Office, Adobe Reader, and several anti virus/spyware/firewall programs. But I feel like I forgot something. Can any of you think of something that I might have missed?

Chrome/Firefox/Opera, unless you're happy with IE. I hear the latest version is significantly improved actually.
I'd recommend Dropbox as well actually - great utility for backing up and syncing files across PCs.

if i was running a streamlined PC I'd only need a Internet browser and another program to write documents. I'd also need some way of digesting media such as audio and video, but I'd probable use media player classic for that. i wouldn't really need any other programs but a anti virus software would be nice.
but my most used programs at the moment are Google chrome, itunes, media player classic and Microsoft word.
