The Tools List

This is my list of Windows tools and utilities. The tools identified on it are ones I’ve used in my work as a Geek Squad Advanced Repair Agent, and to maintain and repair my own Windows-based computers. It is not meant to endorse or recommend any specific tools or software. I’m only listing the tools I’ve used, not saying, “Go get these!”
