Computer Repair Tools That I Can’t Live Without (Part 4: Ninite)

Hello everyone,

In part 1 of this series I talked about my favorite Junk File Cleaners, and in part 2 I told you about the incredible USB Drive Adapter. Then in part 3 I told you about my favorite way to backup and restore data. Today I would like to tell you about a great website that I use to install applications. You just won’t believe it!

Every time that I install or reinstall an Operating System, I have to then download and install dozens of the most common software applications. I used to do this by going to my favorite free software site (, to download and install each application one by one. This method was effective but quite time consuming. Then I found Ninite (, and things will never be the same!

Ninite installs everything for you. Just go to the above mentioned and check the apps that you want to install. Download the Ninite installer and it will automatically mass install all of the apps that you have selected with a speed that will amaze you!

How Ninite Works:

Ninite tries to behave exactly like a technical friend you’ve asked to install a few apps for you. This means that the Ninite installer always installs the latest version of the app, regardless of when or where it was created. Ninite:

  • Says “No” to toolbars or other junk
  • Always installs the latest version of an app
  • Installs the right 32-bit or 64-bit version for a PC
  • Installs apps in the PC’s language
  • Skips apps that are already up-to-date
  • Upgrades an app if it’s out of date

Now how can you top that? I can’t repair computers without Ninite.

Professor Randy says: Don’t continue to manually install your applications! Just walk away and let Ninite install all of your apps while you attend to other matters. This great program is going to save you a lot of time – once you try it you will never go back to installing your apps one by one.
