Professional Windows Diagnostics


I'm looking to develop my PC and network support business and invest in equipment and software to improve the speed and accuracy of software and hardware fault diagnoses to make me as efficient as possible.

I would be grateful if anyone can recommend (from personal experience) the best tools out there to meet my needs with a brief explanation of why they feel what they are recommending is reliable.

I would stress that the recommendation need to be for *professional* field-based use!

Many thanks

having used all the tools i have listed i find them to be very good the one thing on pc check that needs work is the ram test i think memtest is a lot better http://www.memtest86.com/ but all the other tests with pc check are spot on

ERD commander.  It's basically an operating system on a cd.  You can use it on NT class machines that won't boot.  You can edit the registry, transfer data, reset passwords, access restore points, etc.
