Are there any repair tools worth spending money on and if so, which ones does anyone recommend or what should you do instead?

These are too numerous to mention and all claiming to be "the best" - if you protect your computer in the first place and continue to do so you will have no need for so called "repair tools".

You need a good Firewall, Anti Virus, and Anti Malware.

Are you talking about screwdrivers etc to get the casing off and take HDD's out? If so then just get one that fits the screws.

lotvic - you might be on the right track - only time will tell - in the meantime I will keep "guessing"

Not screwdrivers!! Software. Sorry I did not make question clearer. It seems to be a case of "when I nods my head, hit it" !!

Good guess.

Assuming this is not an Iranian Stuxnet virus repair to get the centrifuges back online, try Hiren's Boot CD for a collection of lots of utilities.

lotvic - "Now all we need to do is guess the Operating System :)" Or is it a Dragon 32 or Commodore 64
