If you are someone that works as a computer tech, an I.T. Manager; or, you are someone at home who helps family members and friends when computer problems arise, then you need to have the necessary tools to get the job done. Putting together these tools (and keeping them up-to-date) is time-consuming; and, if you are like me, as I continue to age, I often forget or don’t keep up on what is current.
This is where the “Windows Repair Toolbox” comes into play. This portable application is probably the best application put together that I have found that provides an interface that serves as a launcher and updater of just about every important portable diagnostic software and portable anti-malware software that you can find. Not only that, the “Windows Repair Toolbox” will help you keep these software applications up-to-date. If there is a portable software tool that you see that is not included, you can custom add it to the toolbox.
For you folks at home, who possess that technical expertise in helping family and friends, do this:
- Download, unzip the program to a flash drive with at least 8GB of space. Make that flash drive your tech toolbox.
- After downloading, open the toolbox and click on the buttons on the “Windows Repair Toolbox” of the apps you think you will most likely use (when assisting others). Be patient as each of these apps download and install to your flash drive.
- After completing these tasks, I keep the drive plugged in. By doing this I occasionally will perform the updates so that I am ready to go; PLUS, it makes me become more knowledgeable of each of the current applications, making it sort of an educational experience, as well. Also, I periodically run some of the applications to scan my PC for malware and/or Windows problems.
