Best Programs for New Windows Computers

What are some of the necessary apps and things to get for a Windows Computer?
A secure internet browser. One of the first things I download is always the Brave Browser.
A Chromium based browser with advanced security features.
Download from Brave.com
Antivirus Program After installing your updates, Windows will recommend a firewall in addition to the built in Windows Defender Program.
A popular one is McAffee Antivirus, but it is not free.
TotalAV is a good free alternative.
Computer MaintenanceCCleaner is a useful little tool I've always enjoyed.
Helps you with cleaning 'crap' and leftovers from programs you no longer use.

Office Tools A windows computer comes with Microsoft Office but it requires you to be online to access your documents, unless you upgrade it.
A free alternative is OpenOffice (also known as NeoOffice).

With all the buzz about cryptocurrencies and the latest altcoins you might be one of us who don't have money to invest in these things but still want to check it out. Building a mining rig is not the easiest thing, and can sometimes barely even be profitable and keep up with the power bill.
The good news is there are other ways to get some coins for free. There are many startups and dApps (decentralized apps) that give away coins for checking them out. Plus some freelancing sites where you can work for crypto, although this has yet to get much traction.

Probably the easiest way are 'Airdrop' events.
