    It can be CD or DVD medium. Please specify and include a brief explanation why. Paid or free makes no difference.

    For me, it's without question my ShadowProtect Recovery CD, followed closely by Partition Wizard. The two combined are a match made in computer maintenance heaven :D

    Operating system...without it, I'd have no OS to maintain in the first place. Every time I use it it's 100% effective.

    For the 3rd party/other category, I've use UBCD a few times. Yeah, a couple of those times it helped, other times..nada. So it's hardly 100% effective.

    Hard drive partitioning I do from Windows based apps...like Acronis or Paragon...right from within Windows, does the work on a reboot. So no CD there.

    I've tried burning CDs of malware removal tools, they seem to really amount to nothing..a waste of time. Best method of cleaning/repairing is to slave the infected hard drive to a machine quite a few updated removal tools.
