    Techie tools

    Remote Server tools - Users, Computers, exchange etc.
    All Workstation installed software so you can test serif, adobe, office files etc.

    The more tools readily to hand you the better . Jus make sure you always lock your machine when you leave it unattended.

    Also WSUS and SCCM consoles
