Since I work on sick computers as a hobby, for spare cash and for family members, I thought "why not make a portable toolkit to make my work easier?" So, I did that. I took a sandisk 4gb thumb drive and along with a post at my favorite blog, remove-malware, I gleamed ideas of what to include in my arsenal.
What's inside it. First I grouped antiviruses, then browsers, then clean up tools, removal tools, then plugins and software that commonly needs to be updated. Also, I have 7zip 32bit and 64bit portable, I have packaged it into a self extracting 7zip exe for cleanliness.
The free antiviruses I have are Avast, Avg 32bit and 64bit, Avira, Comodo Security Premium, Microsoft security essentials 32bit and 64bit (yes, people do use MSE.) I hope I have all the alternative installers that have 32bit and 64bit separately.
I have Firefox and Chrome offline installers, I might add Opera, though I haven't met anyone who actually uses Opera, should I include it also?
Under cleanup, I have Ccleaner and Auslogic disk defragger, I use Ccleaner to clean up temp files from malware and to clean up the computer. Then I run a disk defrag to optimize the computer. I once found 25GB in temp files on someone's computer.
Then, under removal tools I have AdwCleaner to clean up adware. aswMBR to scan fro rootkits and bootkits, Comodo cleaning essentials 32bit and 64bit, Combofix, Gmer for more rootkit slaughter, Hitmanpro 32 and 64bit for a quick cleanup and second opinion. Mbam-Chameleon to quickly deploy mbam, and then Rkill to kill any rouge programs inhibiting the starting of any security tools. Then finally I have Tdsskiller, to search and destroy those pesky rootkits.
Then, finally, since most computers are horribly out of date when it comes to Flash, Shockwave, Adobe Air, Adobe Reader, Java, and Silverlight.
This is what I currently have on my USB toolkit and I am always open for suggestions and additions, if this is the wrong forum then I'm sorry but this seemed like the best place to post this.
