P.S : Windows Media Player 11 will be more easier for Mp3 Playups...

4. System Tuner

A system cleaning software which removes the temporary files and keeps system healthy by performing Defragmentation, Registry defrag, Registry Maintenance etc... is necessary

I recommend Tune Up utilities but it's not free

So Use CCleaner

Use Defraggler to Defrag hard disks

Use Recuva for recovering deleted files :

5. Web Browser

A Web browser is necessary to surf on internet.

Internet Explorer will be installed as default browser in Windows. 
Other Good Web browsers are

6. Flash Player

A Flash player is necessary to view videos in internet.

7. PDF reader

A PDF reader is necessary to read PDF documents.

Try Foxit reader which is a Free Ware

Another way is there... Use Google Chrome to View PDF files. Simple...

8. Virtual Device Manager

A Virtual CD or DVD creator is necessary to open ISO Files..

I Suggest Power ISO as it performs many tasks ranging from Mounting an ISO image to Creating a bootable Pendrive

Try Daemon tools It's also working Fine

9. Internet Download Manager

Internet download Manager (IDM) is a software which will be very useful. It can download any videos or audio which is streaming in internet

It increases download speed upto 5 times..
It's Free for 30 days. Try it

A Torrent Downloader is necessary to download Torrent Files
Try uTorrent. It's working good. You can control the download and upload speeds etc...

10. Uninstaller

Usually default windows uninstaller leaves some files when you uninstall a program. That is some components of the program will be left out. This may slow down the system in future. So avoid this. 

Use REVO uninstaller to uninstall Programs

10. Compression and Decompression

A Compression software is necessary to extract files which are in compressed formats such as rar, 7z, zip etc.

7zip works well and has the highest compression ratio
Winrar is easy to work and gives better compression at a faster rate and it extracts almost any format

I Prefer both as both of these are working fine.
