Let there be respect for the earth,
Peace for its people,
Love in our lives,
Delight in the good,
Forgiveness for past wrongs,
And from now on a new start.

Process Explorer.

It's Task Manager+++

It shows what's running which program; especially useful when you're trying to track down a Windows service that's taxing your CPU.

Knoppix and the aforementioned memtest are my most used tools when building systems.


Knoppixhas saved my data twice now when NTFS got corrupted and windows wouldn't touch it. It also comes in a convenient travel size (called Feather Linux, fits on mini-CD)

Some versions of Knoppix have Gparted (a GNU partition editor) on them, but here's an indepentent distro as well:
