Tools of my Trade

These are software and tools I use for my computer repair business and my YouTube videos. Some of these links below are affiliate links.

YouTube Channel

For my YouTube videos I use Open Broadcaster Software and ShareX. These two pieces of software are entirely free.

Domain Names

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.

Anti-Malware Software

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

Anti-Virus Software

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

Computer Optimization

CCleaner by Piriform Limited is my preferred computer optimization tool. I use it to clean up files and windows registry. Also, there is a portable version for administrators and advanced users.

Data Recovery

Recuva is one of my preferred applications for damaged or deleted file(s) recovery. PhotoRec and TestDisk are two other preferred Linux based file recovery utilities. For mounting Macintosh hard drives on Microsoft Windows I use HFS Explorer.
