MS Windows XP / 2003 / VISTA CD setup file (ISO file)
This is a special CD designed to allow you to prepare your
system for an installation of any of the above operating systems.
The disk also contains all the tools you might need to repair or access
an existing OS.

 

Note 1:
A lot of people appear to be unaware of the fact that you do NOT need the 4, 5 or 6 setup disks in order to install Windows 2000 and XP. A common Win98 boot disk such as the Boot Disk Essentials diskette below can be used to install these OS's. This is what the Win XP System Setup Disk above does.  Here's how to do it:

  1. Start the computer with your chosen boot disk.

  2. Change to the cdrom drive.

  3. Go into the \i386 directory on the cdrom.

  4. Run WINNT.EXE to begin the install process.

Kaspersky Rescue Disk (2010)

107mg
Kaspersky Rescue Disk is designed to scan and disinfect x86-compatible computers, (windows95-Windows7, both 32bit and 64bit), that have been infected. The application should be used when the infection is at such level that it is impossible to disinfect the computer using anti-virus applications or malware removal utilities (such as Kaspersky AVPTool) running under the operating system. In this case, a higher degree of efficiency of the disinfection is achieved since malware programs do not gain control when the operating system is being loaded.

In system rescue mode only virus scan tasks and database update tasks are available as well as update rollback and viewing of statistics.

FalconFour's Ultimate Boot CD v1.5

423mg

In this boot CD are the most popular and useful tools anyone would ever need. The best of all software and it all fits on one CD-R that's readable by any computer worth booting on. Not everything can read a DVD, and USB booting is hit and miss at best. Many techs use ERD Commander, which (after the Microsoft acquisition) is now known as Microsoft DaRT - the Diagnostic and Recovery Toolkit. It's a considerably smaller (than Hiren/UBCD4Win) set of extremely useful and specialized tools that do an amazing job at whipping a broken Windows installation into shape. It is repackaged into a lightning fast-booting compressed RAM disk image, which looks, acts, and runs exactly the same as the original disc. It's also on this disc.
