    Greetings folks. First time poster, been lurking for a bit =)

    I remember reading in a magazine about an automated installer for various applications (skype, trillian, etc etc), tried it once and really liked it. Since school time is coming around again I was going to do wipe my hard drive and do a clean install. I cant remember what it was called though...

    Description may be a little vague.. To add on some details:
    The website allowed for a selection of checkboxes to choose what you want downloaded. An executable was generated to download that would run, downloading and installing all the programs automatically choosing default settings and declining any additional bloat such as Yahoo Toolbar or whatnot.

    Thanks for your time in advance!

    I was thinking of something different, but how is the experience with this?

    Thank you for your quick response as well!

    Edit 1: I think it was called Xibite... or something... I cannot remember it and its bugging the hell out of me
    Edit 2: Found it! It was called Ninite. Thank you again for the response though!
