Some more Tools:

Ultimate Boot CD for Windows (UBCD4WIN):
- Bootable (Live) CD. Heaps of tools in a windows environment (SORT of like booting in Safe Mode, but better! ). Takes a bit to make, though. There is also a way to burn a Dual-boot CD with UBCD included. Makes one powerful diagnostic tool!

Microsoft's Spyware tool (Beta 1 - expires July 31, 2006)

Drive Eraser

While I agree that GRC has some useful utilities, Steve has a habit of sensationalising everything.....so be sure to visit grcsucks.com ;-)

Eh, sorry, just posted this in another thread, but anyway:

WebTemp makes statistics like these:



Download at http://www.coolhardware.de

There's a free version and a very cheap enhanced one.

A little too obvious maybe, but I've found MS's Knowledge Base extremely useful at times. Particularly with certain Stop errors:

I used to be indecisive; not so sure anymore.

Ive had some recent troubles with spybot too. It picked up the virus but would not remove it. The virus was the Vundo virus and I had to install other software to remove it. There's also been a couple of other instances where it won't completely get rid of something.

Hmmm..

http://www.ccleaner.com/download

CCleaner is a freeware system optimization, privacy and cleaning tool. It removes unused files from your system - allowing Windows to run faster and freeing up valuable hard disk space. It also cleans traces of your online activities such as your Internet history. Additionally it contains a fully featured registry cleaner. But the best part is that it's fast (normally taking less than a second to run) and contains NO Spyware or Adware!

That's because it's a spyware tool, not an antivirus, duh.
