    Computer Service Tools

    Hi,
    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:
    Malwarebyes
    CCleaner
    AVG
    Superantispyware
    Process Explorer
    TreeSize
    Advanced System Care
    Driver Backup

    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.

    Regards

    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.

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