Hi, possible switcher here. The first time you boot up a Windows PC (such as a Dell or HP) it is preloaded with tons of programs that I end up deleting immediately. Then, I create a restore point. Then, I cautiously install my programs and carefully monitor the computers performance for a while until I feel I have finally got things in order. What I mean is, with a new Windows machine there is a whole list of things that should be done when you first get the computer. I may be getting a mac pro within the year and wonder if anyone can give me any tips about stuff I should do when I first boot up? Thanks!
