I listen to the Computer America show and this tool was mentioned. It allows you to pick from a list of common applications and generates an installer that will install everything you selected in one click. No ads, no toolbars, etc.
Ninite Easy PC Setup - Silent Unattended Install Multiple Programs At Once
Handy for those primary school techs who have no AD/Software deployment system I suspect. There's also a 'Pro' paid for version.
It's a great tool - I've been using it for a while for friend's computers and standalone staff laptops. Saves a lot of time.
have to agree its great for when you build a PC, saves so much time.
