Tools of my Trade

Software and tools I use for my computer repair business and my YouTube videos. Some of those links below are affiliate links. For my YouTube videos I use Open Broadcaster Software and ShareX.

These two pieces of software are entirely free. My domain name is registered with Also, I host multiple websites with Namecheap normally responds pretty quickly via chat, whenever I do have issues, which is not that often.

My preferred anti-malware of choice is MalwareBytes. Also, SuperAntiSpyware sometimes removes objects that MalwareBytes won't detect. Finally, I keep ComboFix in my toolkit for those ultra infected computers.

I load either Avast, AntiVirusGuard, or Microsoft Security Essentials anti-virus on used computers I sell or repair. I recommend Avast or AVG to my customers.
