I found this extremely nifty bootcd that people who screw around or fix computers should have. “Hiren” apparently made this wonderful bootcd which includes a huge collection of utilities. In broad categories, it has partition tools, backup tools, recovery tools, benchmarking/harddrive/ram test tools, MBR editing, Bios saving/cracking, password changers, network tools and disk optimizers.
Amazingly…its 186 mb!
My suggestion would be to simply download it, and burn it to a cd. Then…just wait until you need any of those tools to fix or tweak your system. I would say that Hiren’s BootCD is a nifty tool 🙂
