    Hello everyone,
    I got windows 7 professional 32-bit running on my machine (64-bit didn't Wouldn't work)
    I use my pc for some lite gaming and panoramic photoshop work.
    So far I have:
    MSE
    Steam
    Mass effect 2
    The orange box
    Microsoft office student and teacher 2003
    Firefox (I use quite a few addons)
    Photoshop CS3

    Is there anything that should be on my list?

    I was actually using that before I got photoshop. I find the photomerge tool in photoshop does a better job and allows me more options quality wise. Thanks for your input though.

    I'd forgotten about the photomerge in Ps... i know i found it once, then upgraded to CS4 and never could find it again. not that i looked very hard :p

    I'm assuming you have all your anti malware sorted? (is conspicuously absent from your list)

    An antivirus like Avast and a firewall like ZoneAlarm.

    I use Microsoft Security Essentials for antivirus on all my computers. It's fast and doesn't clutter up my PC.

    thirded. Most annoying firewall ever. Actually i find most firewalls annoying.

    MSE is good. I use either that or Avast. I've just noticed PC Tools have released a free antivirus... i remember being quite impressed with spyware doctor a few years ago, so i might give their AV a try...
