View Full Version : Computer Repair Apps

Disclaimer: I use a lot of free software, I also use a lot of not-free software. For the sake of brevity there's a high probability I'm going to link to a few sites that might not be kosher with a lot of people. TBH, I couldn't really care less. Once you install it what you do with it after that is up to you. All that matters to me is that there's something out there that does the job quicker, easier and most efficiently than the rest.

In the interest of making this not as long as it could be (I TREE'd my flash drive and could dedicate a wiki to it...hmm...) I'm just going to go over a few packs of apps that are pretty amazing, and some even more amazing individual apps that I find necessary when working on computers.

Post if there's anything you feel is lacking or should be added to the list. I'll probably redo this based on tasks and start giving some descriptions.

Not really much a tool but I prefer it over the regular task manager

This is the current practice I have for the best result in "Computer Repair". Malwarebyte, avira, sysinternal:autorun and others were the good old days.
The application I would like to add is "Ghost.exe". Don't use clonezilla, it takes 30-40 minutes.
Also, VMWare's "ThinApp".

- Can be done in just 3 mins.
- Don't waste time on scans, anti-virus, firewall, updates and reinstall
- Forget about CD boot. It's slow and annoying. Thumbdrive boot is way faster. (It's like a harddisk)

Setup :
- Format computer, Install OS, drivers, overclock. This ensure your computer is perfectly clean.
- Save this clean configuration into an image using Ghost in 3 mins or less. (see [2])
when creating the image, only backup the partition. (e.g. C:\). Not the whole harddisk.
With just OS and drivers, each ghost image won't be >10 GB. It takes less than 3 mins to restore.
Create another partition (e.g. Z:\). Save from C:\ to Z:\.
- Use ThinApp to make programs portable, save in another partition to use them. (e.g. portable filezilla in D:\)
- When having problem, Restore ghost image in 3 mins or less.
- Create many images / Update them- e.g. Load WoW.ghost , update WoW, Save WoW.ghost (overwite).

When you waste 10 mins to scan for virus / problems on your computer, I have already restored my computer to a "clean" state twice.

1. Make a bootable thumbdrive
- format thumbdrive with hpflash2.zip (HP format tool)
- copy Win98 DOS files into thumbdrive
2. add Ghost.exe from HirenCD
3. For addational tools : Copy rest of HirenCD contents into thumbdrive. (partition / HDD regenerator /clone/ file manager, mini Windows)
4. Update BIOS, change to "Boot from USB device". Write Ghost command line in autoexec.bat.
5. Plug in thumbdrive, it will auto Load the Ghost Image. Enjoy a "clean" computer experience everyday.

I did this for my own computer, 200+ computers in my company, and I hide the partition with Ghost Images. This method defeats a team of IT support guys to reinstall, scan, check, update.

I hope you image'd 1 computer and deployed the rest over the network all at the same time.

But ya, anyone can format a comp. Real people want to preserve their tax documents, music and pictures. Things like that may work in a sea of cubicles but you'll never get any business because of the negative word of mouth outside. For me, formatting is the absolute last resort. And that's usually when their system files are totally corrupt and their recovery partition is infected also.

Repeat business is always worth a little bit more time. Also, added a couple more things.

I use this, it's great

ubuntu should be put under boot cd's

08-09-2011, 10:31 PM
Ubuntu by itself isn't that useful, it's also covered under HawkPE and if you want a real linux live cd you use Knoppix.

08-10-2011, 06:53 AM
not saying for liveCD im saying for a OS
knoppix is much better as a liveCD

I don't think the point of repairing is to install stuff that might not solve the issue you're experiencing along with potential data loss caused by such installation. But if that's how you interpret repairing, then good luck in your future endeavors. Let winds of fate swiftly bring you to the dump you deserve.

IMHO replacing windows/mac with any form of linux is always a good thing

I'm sure he installs that stuff on a USB and uses it from there.

rar password recovery, linux (for ppl that pwn) and windows (for people who do not pwn).

08-23-2011, 11:48 PM
Excuse me, dear sir, but wtfutalkinabout?

08-24-2011, 07:39 AM
You can't recover RAR passwords, you can brute them but that's entirely different.

07-06-2014, 12:37 PM
Hello, people who still read this forum. I've been running a little computer repair shop since fall 2012, among other things. Instead of charging an hourly rate like most shops, I do flat rate pricing for common jobs like malware & PUP (potentially unwated program) removal, so I try to spend as little time on them as possible. Thankfully there's a lot of free software that helps with that, some of which is already listed above.

I'm not going to list literally every piece of software I use, but here are the tools I use on a daily basis for the common cleanup & optimization jobs.

Boot disks:
Hiren's Boot CD (http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/) - 'MiniXP' PE (preinstall environment aka live OS) environment with a LOT of freeware tools. Also has Parted Magic (Linux environment), a Windows password reset tool, memtest, and some seriously useful DOS tools like HDD Revitalizer, which I've used to repair drives with bad sectors enough to retrieve data where other tools like HDD Regenerator failed. You can find modded versions on torrent sites, such as Restored Edition that has Windows 7 PE and lots of pirated toys like Paragon.

Gandalf50's Windows 8.1 PE (http://windowsmatters.com/) - I have this as a UEFI bootable USB drive. It has a bunch of freeware tools but no Autoruns for some reason, which is one of my main reasons for using a PE, so I keep a copy on the USB drive.

Kon-Boot 1.1 - Bypasses Windows login without having to reset the password. Useful for when someone brings in a family member's computer and didn't think to get the password, and resetting it would only confuse them. Look for the torrent.

Hardware checks:
CrystalDiskInfo Portable (http://crystalmark.info/download/index-e.html) - Displays SMART data including power on count & time, temperature, etc. Tells you plainly if the drive is "Good" or "Caution" you need to do a backup before you go chkdsk'n and virus scannin'. Even something seemingly trivial like 1 reallocated sector count could mean clicks are in your near future.

HD Tune Pro Portable - Displays SMART data much like CDI, but allows you to scan the drive for errors, and other tools like secure erase. I typically only do the error scan when I've got a used hard drive that shows good SMART data but I want to make sure it's good before I put it in a customer's machine. Portable pro version available on a torrent site near you.

HWMonitor (zip) (http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html) - Temperature, fan speed, voltage.

Cleanup tools, listed in the order in which I run them:
Autoruns (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb963902.aspx) - Check and remove items from Windows startup. Boot to a WinPE of your choice, run Autoruns and use the offline system tool to remove programs from startup before you boot into the installed Windows OS. This is the best way to get rid of rootkits and other malware that keeps the user from doing anything even in safe mode, like the FBI Virus and its variants, and fake antiviruses that keep you from running anything. Take it out of startup, then boot up normally and run your removal tools.

KillEmAll (http://www.fooli****.com/vb6-projects/killemall/) - Attempts to close all running, non-essential processes.

Rkill (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/rkill/) - Attempts to close known malware processes, resets some filetype associations, gets rid of Conduit's bull**** proxy thing and does some other checks. The other tools make this kind of redundant anymore but it doesn't take long so I run it anyway.

Junkware Removal Tool (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/junkware-removal-tool/) - Removes some malware and junk programs and repairs the damage they leave behind. It isn't updated very regularly but it does occasionally grab/fix things that the other tools miss. It doesn't require a reboot so when it's done you can go right to the next one.

AdwCleaner (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/adwcleaner/) - Adware/PUP removal tool. Updated pretty regularly. This has fixed some weird problems with IE that I wasn't able to fix with other easy methods. Requires a reboot. It leaves a folder in the root directory so don't forget to delete that when you're done.

CCleaner Portable (https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/builds) - Clean out temp files and caches, and reset window size/location and such. Give Malwarebytes and other scanners less **** to sift through. I normally leave cookies alone because old people don't even know they have a password for AOL/Yahoo, let alone know what the password is.

Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (http://www.malwarebytes.org/downloads/) - Magical malware/PUP remover. The free version works very well as an on-demand scanner. The paid version is a real-time scanner and seems to work better than a lot of products actually billed as anti-viruses. A keygen can be found to give yourself a lifetime license.

PC Decrapifier (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/pc-decrapifier/) - Hasn't been updated in a long time, but it's supposed to be used for removing common unnecessary startup items, and junk programs & icons that tend to come pre-loaded on OEM computers. What it's way more useful for is uninstalling a bunch of stuff at once.

Revo Uninstaller Portable (http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_uninstaller_free_download.html) - Uninstall programs when the uninstaller doesn't work. One that immediately comes to mind is some versions of the Yahoo toolbar. It'll run the normal uninstaller, followed by scan and removal of files and registry entries left behind by the target program.

Avast (http://www.avast.com/en-us/index) - the best free AV.

For paid AVs, there are several good ones. I usually recommend Kaspersky but feel free to check AV Comparatives (http://www.av-comparatives.org/) before making a decision. Just stay the hell away from Mcafee.

Or you can just do what I do and don't download viruses, dummy.

Other tools:
Adblock Plus (https://adblockplus.org) - Block ads in your browser. You'll find your browsing experience generally much more pleasant. I'm pretty sure most of my customers bringing in infected machines got them infected by way of malicious advertisements. Which is why I usually don't install Adblock on their machines. Thank you come again

Anti-Virus removal tools - because sometimes malware will 'break' the installed anti-virus and the uninstaller won't work. Or just because. There are tools to remove pretty much every anti-virus, most of which can be found on bleepingcomputer (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/).

BlueScreenView (http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/blue_screen_view.html) - Shows detailed information for BSODs that have occurred. There are lots and lots of other useful NirSoft utilities. Probably best to just grab the launcher that includes all of them, which Gamepin linked in the OP. Anti-viruses will likely detect it as a hacktool due to the password retrieval utilities included.

ComboFix (http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/download/combofix/) - Scans for specific infections and then runs scripts to auto-fix those infections. Seems to have a bad rep for being a scary program that can break things. I personally have never had any problems with it. It's just not quite as useful to me anymore with the other tools available, but people still swear by it.

Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit (http://www.malwarebytes.org/antirootkit/) - Scans for rootkits (and other things), removes them and repairs the damage they are known to cause. I don't think I've ever seen it find anything that MBAM couldn't get rid of, but I like it anyway because it's portable. What's also nice about it is that it will tell you if there is an AppInit_Dlls value (and remove it), which is typically a sign of a rootkit, but if you ran Autoruns then you'd have already dealt with it.

Ninite (http://www.ninite.com) - Automatically download & install/update lots of software, automatically opting out of the bull**** adware they often come packaged with. Just select the ones you want to grab, hit download, and it'll create a custom installer with the selected apps.

Windows Repair All-In-One Portable (http://www.tweaking.com/) - Auto-fixes a lot of common Windows issues and actually works really damn well. It has replaced a lot of my scripts and reg fixes.

07-06-2014, 10:59 PM
Two of my essentials (Anti-Malware/Spyware) :

HijackThis 2.0.4 (http://filehippo.com/download_hijackthis) - shows which processes run on startup, IE startup pages, browser plugins, name server changes, etc... pretty much check boxes and click "fix" to make the bad things go away
Spybot Search & Destroy 2.4 (http://filehippo.com/download_spybot_search_destroy/) - finds, removes, and blocks malware

(+1 big vote for NirSoft apps, can do all kinds of things from recovering browser/wifi passwords, view open ports and network traffic, etc)

Can anyone spot weird **** here?
