If you are the tech savvy user in your family and community you usually get lots of calls from desperate users who need computer help. The help that is needed can vary widely depending on the situation, from computer boot problems, hardware that is not working anymore, computer viruses or "how do I" questions. Most users who get those calls regularly have their own computer repair utility kit on a USB device or DVD that contains all the great tools that they use to analyze and repair computers.
The Computer Repair Utility Kit is a collection of 50 or so tools that cover a wide range of scenarios. It is great if you do not have your own tool collection at hand or like to use a complete tool collection without having to evaluate and compile the tools yourself.
The collection is completely portable and comes with a launcher application that can be used. All tools are divided into different categories like file management, information, network tools, repair tools or virus and malware removal tools. The collection includes high acclaimed programs like CCleaner, Rootkit Revealer, Hijack This, Recuva, Process Explorer, the Firefox web browser and Putty among other tools. It is basically the who is who of repair tools bundled into one compilation.
The tool kit has been compiled by the guys at Technibble and can be downloaded right from their website. It has a size of about 90 Megabytes. It does come with the option to add new applications to the launcher in case any of your favorite tools is missing from the compilation.
