    This site has lots of good utilities, freeware. The founders, two
    Phd's in comp science started this on and Winternals.
    Wonder if anyone here has had experience with winternals.
    I am thinking about buying the administators pak, 1500 bucks as
    one set of software to start my own home based computer repair
    shop. Anyone know of this software and/or others like it?
    Administrators pak has about ten software packs to do a lot of jobs
    in comp repair like registry cleanup, getting files off a dead HD, etc.
    Thanks. Don.

    A lot of the utilities are on their own site for free, the pro stuff
    is naturally a lot more universal and powerful, they don't include
    all the goodies of the pro stuff for free but at least the freebies
    teach you about stuff like getting files off bad HD's and such.
    There is a file called Testdisk9 (not from sysinternals, forget who
    right now) that does much of that. Like you say 1500 bucks is
    a lot of mulah, but its all integrated into one powerful suite.
    Testdisk fixes a lot of the problems with bad HD, like the MBR
    and file structure, sometimes thats all it takes to get one going again.
    Sometimes not but I like to know about that stuff even if its just to
    keep my own stuff going.
