Hi trevor :)

What do you mean exactly by "troubleshooting DVD/CD"? You mean, live CD that you can use to boot from in order to fix issues when a system can't boot or?

HitmanPro.KickStart is a good one, I use it against Ransomware most of the time as it does the job pretty well. Kaspersky Rescue CD is another one. I suggest you to have a bootable CD/DVD of every Windows (Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8/8.1) if you're in a situation where you need to access the Recovery PE and can't do it the normal way, you'll be able to by booting from these installations.

I'm curious as to what a "troubleshooting tool" is in your world.

 

Most users are incapable of adequately dealing with malware...so that is not a Windows "troubleshooting" scenario but a unique situation calling for unique solutions in some cases.

 

In any case, this forum covers Windows 7 situations, not malware, not hardware.  Each of those has unique tools which are used based on the expertise and familiarity/comfort of the user.

 

There is no magical formula for "troubleshooting", IMO.

I also suggest you to take a look at d7 II, really useful program that can come very handy in certain situations. However, it's to be used by actual technical supports that know exactly what they're doing, so be cautious with it.
