Cool Thumb Drive Toolbox

I am not sure where to post this, so here i go...

I am noticing i am working on friends and familys pc's more and more. I am wanting to put together a thumbdrive toolbox. I was wondering what people thought i should put on it.

ext. Firefox thumbdrive version, cpu-z...

I would like a disk repair tool like checkdisk, and a light formating tool and stuff like that!

Ty

Hiren's BootCD From USB Flash Drive (Pen Drive) - www.hiren.info

Hiren's BootCD 9.9 - www.hiren.info

Hiren's BootCD 9.9: Download Hiren's BootCD 9.9

Outside of that, I would include an Anti-virus, Malwarebyte's Anti-Malware (and the rest of Osiris's Guide), O&O Defrag Free, PCDecrapifier, CCleaner, and such.

Yes, 2000 is the only free edition. It does a good job (better than Windows defrag) but is an on-demand defrag.

I am still working on my Toolbox... The Hiren CD Thumb drive rocks.
I have also added
Driver Robot: Guaranteed automatic driver updates

UPDATE:
Hiren's Bootdisk on thumb drive ROCKS! I has most things you need.
I have added a few of my own, and if you get a large jump drive for teh Hiren Boot, you can throw these on it too...
Unknown Device Identifier
CPU_Z
Driver Robot
MS Config Clean-up
Firefox Portable

I suggest using a 512mb - 1gig Thumb Drive

maybe some sort of memtest that can run off of a usb drive? (before boot of course), and I have a wifi password viewer on mine if I have a problem with a clients pc (at their house) so I can pull out my laptop and hop on the wifi without having to wait 30min for the owner to find the paperwork for his router to get the password

EDIT: well I Just noticed clown has it too, WirelessKeyView. Very valuable tool

now if only it would dump the wifi keys and the networks they belong to to a .txt

One that I noticed that isn't listed, is winRar. You can copy it from its default install folder and paste it on a flash drive to run. It thinks its the demo version, but the kind folks at rarlab made the demo unlimited anyways
