Living in Korea and working with a lot of different people from different backgrounds and cultures gives me access to a lot of different things. However, in all these differences, one of the biggest commonalities I’ve found is that most people run Windows XP on their computers and end up with the same set of problems and issues. Therefore, I present my list of the most essential and helpful tools for Windows XP.
**Note: This list is only the MOST essential tools I need (including Internet browsers, virus scanners, ad/spyware scanners, video codecs, and Windows updates). For a more complete list of ALL the software I like to use for Windows, click this link. Alternately, this site provides a solid list of other open-source Windows apps.
