Windows PE / 10PE / LiveCD / Boot CD / USB for PC Repair and Hardware Testing
article #1013, updated 80 days ago

Many old friends, e.g. Hiren’s and UBCD4Win, are no longer in development, and for a while there was no clear replacement. alternativeTo is covering it now:

alternativeto.net/software/hiren39s-bootcd/

and two are very interesting to this writer, both with mini10:

gbatemp.net/threads/medicat-dvd-a-multiboot-linux-dvd.361577/

dlcboot.com/download.html

For hard drives alone, we have another:

paul.is-a-geek.org/aio-srt/

www.majorgeeks.com/files/details/all_in_one_–_system_rescue_toolkit.html

In the latter (its basis is 64-bit Ubuntu), open Disks, and find the hard drive test suite by clicking the round icon at the upper-right corner; it appears to have the same functionality as SeaTools, without the driver problems of the Seagate downloadables.

Mozilla Firefox 57 is marvellous
article #1128, updated 95 days ago

Very fast, resource-stingy, extremely reliable and compatible, feature-thorough, and not Googly. Highly recommended. Now JEB’s favorite browser. And it installs 64-bit or 32-bit according to platform, automatically if the install is new. If you’re running an older Firefox on a 64-bit operating system, remove it and install to get all of the upgrade, it’s worth it and then a lot.

Here are web sites for diagnosing DNS, Internet email, and other issues.

http://mxtoolbox.com

A very good place to test Internet email servers and servers in general exposed to the Internet at large.

http://dnsstuff.com

DNSstuff is excellent for diagnosing DNS issues of all kinds.  Most of its tools require a small subscription fee.

http://whatismyipaddress.com/

whatismyipaddress.com is very good for obtaining geographical and ISP information for an IP address.

https://www.testexchangeconnectivity.com/

is very good for testing Exchange WAN services, e.g., smartphone access, Outlook Anywhere.

Unlock Files Easily
article #236, updated 140 days ago

To unlock files easily, use the “Unlocker Assistant”:

http://www.emptyloop.com/unlocker/

There is a portable version and an installable too. This tool makes it very easy to identify which process is locking a given file, and it can attempt to kill the process, or just undo the lock.

There is also “EMCO Unlock IT” which does extremely well:
