Ninite: The Fast Way To Install & Update Popular Software
Whether you’re on a brand new computer or had to reformat for one reason or another, a big pain with a clean computer is getting all those common programs downloaded and installed. Ninite is a handy tool that can save you a few minutes or a few hours. With many of the most popular programs, from web browsers to security to even audio codecs, you simply select the software you need and Ninite will package an installer just for you.
But that’s not even the best part. Modern installers tend to come packaged with “optional” add-ons, like toolbars or security software you don’t want. Savvy users know to look out and uncheck these as they go through the process – but sometimes they can be sneaky. Ninite by default makes sure you’re only installing the software you want, automatically saying no to these add-ons.
It also covers some other important details to save you time and headaches: Ninite installs the correct version for your OS, based on 32-bit or 64-bit versions. It automatically selects the language you have set for your PC, and it makes sure you’re getting the latest version of the program.
Ninite is a great site to keep in mind whenever you have a new computer to quickly get things up and running. You can check it out by clicking here.
