Computer Service Tools
With all the virus' doing the rounds at the moment, and with computers needing a regular service. Which tools do you all use for this ?
On my portable HDD I have:
Advanced System Care
Any others that people would recommend? I found one called ReImage the other day that claims to detect corrupt windows files and downloads a replacement from the internet.

I have a 16GB PortableApps key which is contains various installation files for various school/common drivers and programs (MalwareBytes, Adobe stuff, etc etc) and a shed load of Portable Apps (CCleaner and AutoPatcher get used a lot along with various Driver things); also have an 8GB SARDU multiboot USB with stuff like UBCD4WIN (use that one A LOT) various A/V progs and installation disks.

I have most of what you have listed on a USB Bootable drive and UBCD

Personally I would use the official method: "sfc /scannow".
