Ninite is the first program I use after a Windows install.

Install and Update All Your Programs at Once. No toolbars. No clicking next. Just pick your apps and go.

Ninite will

  • start working as soon as you run it

  • not bother you with any choices or options

  • install apps in their default location

  • say no to toolbars or extra junk

  • install 64-bit apps on 64-bit machines

  • install apps in your PC’s language or one you choose

  • do all its work in the background

  • install the latest stable version of an app

  • skip up-to-date apps

  • skip any reboot requests from installers

  • verify digital signatures or hashes before running anything

  • work best if you turn off any web filters or firewalls

  • save you a lot of time!
