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 use BartPE

www.nu2.nu/pebuilder/

Take a look at the plugins there, you can create a custom live booting CD of xp, with many admin tools. It's my main "toolkit on a disk"
