Microsoft Product Support Reporting Tool 6
Collect essential troubleshooting information on every aspect of a computer

Microsoft Premier Support Reporting Tool is a powerful diagnostic utility that will quickly assemble detailed reports on just about every aspect of a PC.

If a far-away friend asks you for help with a computer problem, for instance, then you'll need to know all about their system - and that's where the Microsoft Premier Support Reporting Tool comes in. Email them the file, and all they have to do is run it: there's no installation involved, and the program will immediately begin creating a report on their computer's configuration.

Once the process has finished (which may not be for 5 or 10 minutes on some systems), an Explorer window will open, pointing at the report file (if not, it's in the \Windows\MPSReports\PFE\cab folder by default). Your friend should then email that to you. It's a CAB file, so you should then be able to expand it somewhere to view the contents. And that's when you'll see just how thorough this tool has been.

You get all the event logs from the target PC, for instance.

An NFO file holds detailed system information on the system.

And a host of configuration files tell you about the PC's startup programs, its installed services and drivers, its power configuration, scheduled tasks, installed printers, Internet Explorer configuration, and network setup. There's detailed information on Microsoft Office (if it's installed), recent crashes (including crash dumps), installed Windows updates and the list goes on - you really do get just about everything you'll need to know about the target computer.

What you don't get, though, is any help in figuring out what this means - so it's not for beginners. But if you're already skilled in Windows troubleshooting then this will be a very useful tool, and should make it quicker and easier to diagnose PC problems.

Verdict:

This extremely thorough diagnostics tool should be an essential part of every geek's troubleshooting toolkit

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
