I might just be missing this particular thread but would it be possible to make a thread or just a post about the essential PC(Mac& Linux too I guess) Diagnostic toolbox. For example software that makes your life easier when fixing a friend's PC. These are just some of the things I can think of off the top of my head.

7Zip (people debate me on 7Zip Vs. WinRAR all the time, I just happen to like 7Zip more)
CCleaner
Rufus (saves you so much time when trying to make a new install on a flashdrive or burn an ISO to a flashdrive)
Ninite. (I keep an up-to-date version of a ninite installer on my flash drive. Contains Chrome, FireFox, 7Zip, VLC, Java, .net, Shockwave, WinDirStat, and Picasa)
WinDirStat (makes seeing large chunks of data that is taking up space on a drive very easy)
Speccy (for me, it is a must have. It installs really quick and gives you a very detailed list of all hardware that it can see)
AS-SSD (good for benchmarking how a drive is performing)
SiSoft Sandra Lite (helpful all around bench mark/stress test but it can be cumbersome at times)
CPU-Z & GPU-Z(like speccy but lighter, quicker and relatively limited.)
Core Temp (helpful for monitoring temps on GPU and CPU cores)
MRI BDE( Geek squad tool. It is hard to find but it exists in "places")

Volvo. For Life. | Saab. Born from jets.2010 Saab 9-3 SS, 54K Miles, 6 Speed Manual.

I have a usb filled with programs like this (most of those in the list and a few others) that constantly comes in handy when building pcs or fixing/helping. Everyone should have one in their backpack, along with their first aid box and zombie survival kit.

What would be sweet is a program that kept the usb up to date with latest version of all the softwares.... and it probably exists.... might do a google search.

Ah yeh ninite, i have seen that before ( i think in another "useful programs" thread on this forum ).
So with this, there's no worries about keeping the usb up to date.... just have any version of useful programs, and use ninite to install them all and update them to newest versions, nice smile.gif

But with ninite, the programs have to be installed for it to get the latest versions by the looks of it? Having the drive up-to-date could be useful for offline installs. Anyway, i'm being picky now, i'll look around to see what else there is, or maybe try to make something that'll sort it.

No, you're totally right about the offline installs. Also, Ninite's software library is not very comprehensive. It's just what sprung to mind.

I like Throtttlestop software. It gives control of multiplier (overclocks unlocked CPUs only), and volts. It's really good when confronted with a locked BIOS. I got my Dell E520 to 4Ghz with a QX6800 using this.
Throttlestop 6.00 ( controls volts on LGA775 only)
https://www.techpowerup.com/downloads/2288/throttlestop-6-00/

There is a Throttlestop 8.00 beta which has support for newer CPUs including 6-8 core. It has some support for volts on Core i #, but I don't know if it raises, or can only lower from BIOS setting. I don't have a newer computer to test this myself. I've seen betas up to v.6

Youtube here- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRUfmPvaOzI

It has many useful features even if you don't O/C with it. Monitors core%, temperatures, voltage. Has a benchmark to test stability, and cooling. Can turn off Speedstep for validation runs.
