What tools are you exactly looking for? Try the control center or something.. add new software from cd's.. or just download what you want from the internet and install.

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

And no, a new title and a slight re-arrangement doesn't make it a new thing.
