I do some trouble shooting and was wondering if any one knew how I could create a CD that would allow me to boot an XP machine that was getting a blue screen.

Ideally, after the boot, I would be able to try a system restore of the affected machine.

..... and if possible I would like to be able to have a virus/spy ware program and perhaps a registry program on it (registry mechanic) and or other programs that could help me do a tune up on the affected machine.

I am wondering if a CD with software already exits for purchase or someone can advise how it can be built.

I do have a new copy of XP pro to use for the system creation if necessary and to avoid any license problems.

Many thanks in advance

Have you tried using recovery console? Or how about using a live linux distro?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
