I am starting a small computer repair business out of my home and am looking for a good diagnostic utility with reporting.

I would like to run the utility and be able to provide a report to the customer of the findings. Are there any free or reasonably priced utilities out there that I could use for this?

Thanks Again!

The problem with diagnostic software is that they could report false positive's, and you the technician must be able to determine what is and isnt a false positive.

How much experience do you have in the computer troubleshooting arena?

Just over 3 years now, been working in the arena since I graduated from college.

I've used diagnostic software, just looking for one that provides a nice, printable report.

Dell uses PC-Doctor for their diagnostic software. You may want to give it a try.
