If you are a computer technician or love troubleshooting computers, toolkit software is a must for you. Since you would be troubleshooting Windows operating system on different computers, it would be cumbersome if you had to install the toolkit on every computer before you could use it. Technicians Toolbox for troubleshooting computers is a portable software, which you can just carry on a USB stick, plug the stick into the computer that needs diagnosis and repair and use it directly without installing anything.
Computer Technicians Toolbox software
Technicians Toolbox can be used not just for troubleshooting. The toolkit software also contains tools to monitor different resources in use by the computer and network. You can monitor CPU, Internet bandwidth and the network devices using it.
There is a single interface that allows you to use all the tools. The portable toolkit is available as a ZIP file that you can extract to a pen drive or anything portable. Then you run “Technician_toolbox.exe” to open the interface.

4. Task Manager
5. System Restore
6. System Properties
7. Memory Diagnostic tools
8. SSL Client Network Utility
