    Someone should take over and update the wiki on this - damn good idea, this thread.

    For cloning software this was recommended recently:

    "OpenSource clone system (OCS) solution called Clonezilla with unicasting and multicasting!"

    are you volunteering? :)
    go for it if you want. i don't have time to do it.

    that post has not been updated since 2004 so yes, it really is so last decade. :)


    again, a wiki entry would be much better and easier to maintain than this thread.

    If you wish to help out another OCAU user by getting into their computer.

    www.teamviewer.com

    Get them to download TEAMVIEWERQS.exe, and you download the full download (doesn't need to be installed).

    They give you their ID and password, and you can log straight into their PC without a firewall and they can see what you are doing.

    It does time out but only after like an hour.

    VERY handy tool!

    I'm suprised no-one has added Hirens Boot CD
    http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/
    Link is about 2/3 of the way down. Great CD, I prefer it to UBCD.

    EDIT: NVM I see Tristan has done it up just up there ^^.
    I completely agree with Acronis, great program quite frankly. Also possibly worth adding GetDataBack (for NTFS or FAT). I recovered 5.22TB off a 320gb IDE drive, including the last 3 formats of it.

    Rkill (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic308364.html) is also handy. It kills any active spyware/malware processes so that you can run your other Antivirus programs

    Great thread, but I couldn't find a good remailer program, doesn't need to be anonymus, just so I get my mail from my previous ISP to the current.

    Recently used MHDD/ to unlock ATA password locked drives from a decommissioned raid array, relevant commands from a boot floppy are unlock and dispwd, google for a list of ata master passwords.

    It's a bit of an obscure issue, but others may have use for a HD unlocking utility.

    • GMER is truely worth it's weight in gold. It's the only guaranteed way I currently have of removing rootkits lately, though it's not that user friendly :(

      link

    • AUTORUNS - I have no idea why MS don't just include this with Windows. It's a very easy to use tool for disabling annoying Malware that hide from the usual scanners (Malwarebytes, etc)

      link

    • HitmanPro - first 30 days are free which is good enough if you're in a bind. It's the last tool that I run on any malware cleanup job.
