always nice to have a USB with a linux destro at hand.

another tool i use is Core Damage.
Great software to test stability on a overclocked CPU.
It does 1 thing. that's what's good about it. Just open the app and lean back.
It will crank up the stress to 100% on all cores.

I quite often find myself using process explorer. Very good for when task manager isn't listing those pesky programs that are trying to update but failing for some reason.

Other than that I don't think I use anything out of the ordinary. (AV, C Cleaner, Defrag, etc)
