Active@ Boot Disk (LiveCD) This is a great suite of tools for the advanced users.  If you don't fit into that category you should be using a repair shop anyway.  Many of the individual tools are also available separately and most even have a free version available.  Always check the difference between the free and the paid versions to see which will best fit your needs.  I've used both and found the tools to always do what I wanted done at the time although I do recommend spending a few dollars and getting the full versions.
