computer technician's tool kit

I'm looking for a computer technicians software "tool kit" that is bootable from a cd or flash drive, containing utilities for virus/malware detection/correction, PC hardware diagnostics, etc. Everything a mobile tech would need to diagnose/repair elements of windows 7 and perhaps XP.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
