UBCD4WIN

These aren't bootable, but still very handy.
Malwarebytes
CCleaner

Hardware:
One of these will be really useful.

what hardware exactly does the "pci post diagnostics test card" test, is it just testing the mobo or does it test other comonents as well? the other tools seem intuitive and a must have.

thannks for the imformation

I've seen some people selling hardware diagnostic testing cards before. I honestly wouldn't drop any money on one of those. Almost completely unnecessary to have IMHO.
