Technibble’s (portable and FREE) Computer Repair Utility Kit

I currently maintain on my flash drive numerous software utilities that literally have taken me years to accumulate (after careful testing and review). I use these utilities when I am assisting others on their PC’s. Recently Technibble, a web site resource for computer technicians who are looking to start their own computer business or improve their existing one, came up with a combination of  “portable” computer repair tools in one easy to use pack. As I mentioned, I have been collecting utilities for years and the list of “portable” repair utilities that they came up with is phenomenal, to say the least.  It even comes with an easy to use “right click” menu to launch each utility.

You can download the entire package at their web site.

    And to think.. I built my portable toolkit manually. One app at a time.. Doh! (slaps forehead)

  3. techpaul says:

    Until the link(s) is(are) replaced.. I would like to remind your readers that they can create a portable “toolkit” themselves.. using the list of programs as a guide, maybe.

    Here’s my illustrated How-To for installing programs to run from a flash drive.. for reference.

    The link has been dropped by Technibble since 21 feb. Goes to a redirect page.

      MikB,

      Thanks for visiting the blog. I’m sorry the link has been dropped. My understanding is that Technibble had to drop the link due to negative responses back from some of the software authors; however, they reportedly are working on another utility package for distribution… I opted to keep the article up so that visitors could, at least, see what the utility package consisted of. The utilities listed can be easily searched for and downloaded using google. Many went crazy over this utility package; which, like myself I already had mine put together. None of what they reflected is anything new! Tons of stuff out there to run off flash drives…

    Hi
    This is one of the best software list I have found
    Thank you for that.

    I’d like to add this ones too:

    1. Advanced SystemCare
    2. Revo Uninstaller.
    This software is much better the the built-in windows uninstaller
    that can clean your registry files when you uninstall a software from your computer.

    Grate tools
    Free too!!

    Enjoy ;-)

    • whatsonmypc says:

      Amit,

      Advanced System Care and the Revo Uninstaller are excellent utilites… You should also try Glary Utilties as well. All of these are posted in the software sections of the blog.

      Thank you for the supporting recommendations.

      Rick

    Don’t forget to update me :-)

    Cheers
    Amit

    i know this is abit late but here are a couple of mirrors courtesy of sharebee http://sharebee.com/e6d3f7e3

    the rapidshare link is dead, but the others are all thriving

    • Adam says:

      Thanks! I’ll have to spread that around a bit. I think it’s sad that they had to take it down just because some companies don’t like anyone else spreading around their FREE software. This is a great tool, especially for people just starting to build their collection of portable software. And it’s all freeware, so who cares if you get it directly from the developers, or from someone else who packaged it up all nicely for you? Anyway, thanks for that link.

    Hi,
    I just visited your blog at “http://whatsonmypc.wordpress.com/2009/02/17/technibble/” and found an interesting one for content link exchange with my website. As your blog is relevant with mine so it would beneficial for both of us and in this way we can also increase our back links. If you also find it suitable then please let me know at- mark.jn09@gmail.com

    Thanks

    Readers,

    The original link for the Computer Repair Utility Kit was taken down… I believe they were getting hammered. I did however, locate the links on The Technibble main site. At the time of writing this comment, the links above that I have reflected in the article should now be working links (at least for the moment). Get it while you can!
