With Ninite, you can install numerous free applications at once. It's free, elegantly presented, and easy to use.
Once you're done checking all of the boxes for the applications you'd like to install, click the big Get Installer button at the bottom of the page. Your computer will then download a tiny installer, customized according to your software choices. Run it, click "Yes" when Windows asks for Administrative permissions, and go have a cup of coffee (or lunch, depending on your Internet connection and software picks).
When you come back, all of your software will be installed. It's that simple: Ninite asks no questions while running, and doesn't force you to click Next-Next-Next, agree to any EULAs, or to do anything really.
