I've chosen the software listed below which I know is stable and reliable but cannot say that some system configurations may not be as well suited as others to run them. Some I have used or are currently using on one of my systems.

Some offer trial versions and I would advise taking advantage of the trial to ensure you're system will operate properly and to assess you feel comfortable with its use.

As a good practice always back up your data and set a system restore point before installing new software to ensure a recovery process if needed.
