Bootzilla - Free Computer Repair Boot CD

BootZilla is a set of utilities to aid in removing and cleaning up virus and spyware infections. It is geared to be very portable, and offers a boot function for hardware diagnostics, while providing a set of useful utilities to help I.T. professionals in doing their jobs. The disk has the ability to test memory and hard drives through the use of a BootCD function called CGT. CGT is based on the official bootCD functionality, reducing it to the very essential list of necessary tools. The end result is a small, under 10MB, BootCD, with all the functionality needed on a daily basis.

The toolkit provides common windows troubleshooting utilities into an easy to use package with bootable functionality and can come in handy while your computer is screwed up because of some malware, virus or hardware issue.
