Hi, I'm new to the Bleeping Computer forums, but I have been using the site's resources for a long time now. I repair computers on a daily basis and frequently use tools like Malwarebytes, RKill, ADW, Combofix, Tweaking AIO, TDSKiller, etc. It gets a bit tedious to always ensure I have the latest versions of these softwares on my flash drive. I was wondering if there was a good toolkit out there that included many of these tools that could also keep them up to date. What do you guys recomend? What do you carry on your repair flash drive?

Sigmalnigma:

 

:welcome: to the Bleeping Computer Forums.  I am not aware of any tool that keeps all of the anti-malware scanners and tools updated.  I prefer to download the latest copies when I am working on computers, and many of them will check for updates on their own.

 

I would recommend against using ComboFix, except in a dire situation and then, only under expert guidance.  Please see this link for more information on the hazards of using ComboFix. quietman7 is one of the foremost computer security gurus here at Bleeping Computer.  Personally I think it is a GOOD thing that ComboFix is not compatible with Windows 8 and 10 computers.  It is a very powerful tool and it can render a computer unbootable.  Personally, I have never asked a user to run ComboFix, and I doubt that I ever will, unless there are NO OTHER OPTIONS, and I can't see that eventuality occurring.

 

Have a great day.

 

Regards,

I have seen a few tool kits over the years but would not recommend them. The creators of such tool kits seldom get permission or authorization from those who actually created those programs so there may be a question as to the legality.

D7 Toolkit all the way. I was a break/fix PC repair company before switching to MSSP. Their toolkit is great. A little tweaking at first but is just like what you are wanting.

d7 by FoolishTech, the creator of CryptoPrevent is a multi-tool designed for automation in diagnostic, Windows repair, and certain malware removal scenarios by professional PC technicians. d7 is similar to Tweaking.com - Windows Repair Tool (All In One).

d7II is a rewrite of d7 which was developed for experienced computer technicians, not end users. FoolishTech advises, "the tool can be very dangerous and destructive if you dont know how to use it properly, or are inexperienced in malware removal techniques."

They are all very useful tools, especially for fixing common Windows problems such as file permissions, issues with Internet Explorer, Windows Update, Windows Firewall, etc caused by malware after the infection has been removed. However, the OP in this topic was looking for a toolkit containing programs like Malwarebytes, RKill, AdwCleaner, Combofix, TDSKiller, etc which is why d7 was not mentioned.
