Just brought myself a 32GB usb memory stick to start building a collection of software that i might find usefull in my first job as an IT Technician in a local school.
Can anyone recommend any software that will make my life easier?
Thanks in advance.
I am still finishing up the edugod mode app. When done it will work on xp, Vista and 7..and will be very handy to have.
Here are some i use
- Angry IP Scanner
- Tight VNC
- HP Bootable USB Disk Creator
- Windows Installer CleanUp Utility (really handy to remove software that wont remove)
- Bulk File Name Utility
- WinDART / ERD
I also use Robocopy allot, although that built into Windows Vista & 7. If your still on XP you will need to download it.
Just to add a few programs to the list:
Double Driver Portable
A version of Malware Bytes Anti Virus - Try to update periodically
I would also consider keeping a copy of all drivers on your Flash Drive (Double Driver is very good for that)
Some brill apps there. Thanks
Have downloaded some poprtable apps-
They seem to be good software if you dont want to install programs on individual computers. Have yet to check licenses to see if they are only free for personal use though.
Burned ISOs of XP, Vista and 7 are useful to have. A DVD with all Service Packs (x86 and x64) is also useful.
This is all the tools I've ever needed
For Windows machines
Hiren's BootCD 14.0 - All in one Bootable CD » www.hiren.info (I really should update from my v10 to the latest)
GParted -- About
For Linux machines
http://rip.7bf.de/current/ although really you only need your favourite distros install media
USB powered dvd drive
These are all great suggestions. However, I would hope that the school would provide you with the tools necessary to do the job. You should not have buy any equipment yourself.
too slow :-p
Get yourself one of these. Lifesaver.

And it always raises a laugh on a job when I say to the ladies, "hang on whilst I get my tool out......" for some reason......
