I’ve just factory reset my old Packard bell laptop. It was just full of junk, pop up and virus. Any personal info I wanted or needed was backed up. I’m trying to restrict the number and types of programs I’ll put onto the computer

There are two programs though I feel I do need: a dvd/cd player and I see I can pick defaults from control panel - hardware and sound - auto player, can you recommend.

I use my PC mainly for Microsoft Office, watching the occasional video, mostly educational, otherwise I use my iPad, in reality I don’t use the PC that much. Now this might sound silly, but if memory serves me right, there was a program where music, video, downloads were stores, I forget it’s name. Any idea what I’m talking about?

As I’ve said I want to restrict, as much as possible, what goes onto the PC could you suggest to me what are the essential I should have. Since the reset I’ve installed nothing but Office and a program called Anki

I’ve asked a lot so a very big thank you for any advice help offered

Silly me iTunes was the software I was thinking of! Am I correct in thinking that’s almost an necessity?
Any other ‘necessary’ programs I should install, in particular is there any good free anti virus software out there?
Again thanks for your advice

It's not, unless you need to "manage" an iPod or similar Apple product.
