Tools of my Trade

These are software and tools I use for my computer 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. I use a Behringer Xenix 802 mixer board and Behringer B-1 condenser microphone to record audio in my videos and podcasts

Domain Names

My domain name is registered with a different provider. However, I affiliate with my preferred previous NameCheap domain name provider. I have NOT had any domain name issues since using these two providers.

Anti-Malware Software

This is my preferred Superantispyware anti-malware of choice spyware software. This software most times removes objects that the garbage ware known as MalwareBytes will NOT detect. Also, I use Emsisoft emergency kit, which will find objects that sometimes even Superantispyware will not.

Finally, I keep ComboFix in my toolkit for those ultra infected computers.

Anti-Virus Software

I install Avira anti-virus, or Microsoft Security Essentials anti-virus on used computers I sell or repair. I mention the professional version of Avira to my customers. If Windows Defender is available I use that anti-virus software to scan for computer virus.

Computer Optimization

This Ccleaner software program is my preferred computer optimization tool for both Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh users. I use this software to clean up files and windows registry entries. Also, there is a portable version for administrators and advanced users.

Data Recovery

This Recuvva computer program is one of my preferred applications for damaged or deleted file 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.
