what to load on a new Windows 7

Last Modified: 2016-11-23
Searched through the site and did not find this exact answer, so I thought I would pose it.

A friend just bought a new Dell i5 computer with windows 7 and I am setting it up for her.  I have loaded the usual:  Mozilla, adobe reader, flash, shockwave.  Curious what you might suggest as must haves on a new windows 7 computer that does not come with it.
