Brown sees a TV commercial about the "Fix It Stick" which promises to clean up your computer. Is it worth it? Leo says the idea isn't all that bad, because you can boot to an external drive and then scan and clean your computer of viruses. But it really comes down to what antivirus tool they use. But you can do all that for free. So make your own!
Ultimate Boot CD
Matt wants to create restore discs for his computer. Leo says that's always a good idea, so that he can restore back to the factory configuration before he starts diagnosing. Making one on a USB key is a great option. He can also buy recovery discs from the manufacturer if he'd rather not do it. Leo recommends the Ultimate Boot CD and HiRen (or HBCD). Both should be free. It has some great utilities.
