GEGeek Tech Toolkit
A complete collection of over 400 Portable Freeware Tech Related programs, all accessible
from one Menu Launcher Utility. There's even a program to update all the essential programs
automatically, all contained on a USB⁄Flash drive for travel. Read below for more details.
       
NEWS!!!
After much thought and consideration I have decided to implement a one time donation
based fee for the GEGeek Tech Toolkit.  Donate an amount that is "Reasonable" and I
will send you a download link via email for the toolkit, with free updates of course.
Sorry if this inconveniences some, but I feel this is fair and would go a long way in helping
me to better manage the toolkit and lighten the load on the server. Hoping to target only
those who see value in a program such as this and just don't have the time to compile one
themselves. I do put a lot of time into this program making sure it has all the latest tools
and utilities needed to help me on my job day to day. Hope it helps you too.  Thanks

This is the preferred method of install to avoid any issues.   Note: I Use  7zip  - (32⁄64bit)

2. Manually launch "GeGeek Toolkit.exe" from within the "C:\GEGeek_Toolkit\"  directory on C: drive.
3. An icon labeled Sy will then appear on your desktop and system tray. Both access the same program!
4. Either Left click desktop icon or Right click system tray icon for Menu.
5. Hover over the "GEGeek Ver 9.x" menu item near the bottom and click "Run Ketarin Update".
6. Now from Within the Ketarin program click "Update All". Go get coffee.  20-25 min  @ 40Mbps on my PC.  
7. When finished - Close Ketarin and the GEGeek Toolkit. Then Relaunch Toolkit and Test. Precautionary.
8. Optional - Close Toolkit and Copy the entire GEGeek_Toolkit  Directory to Root of your Flash Drive.
9. Run the Ketarin Update Once Per Week, as some programs will always update.
0. For updates - Delete Entire Tookit from C: drive, install new ver and Sync to Flash Drive. It's what I do.

Is the Process "gegeek toolkit.exe" Safe or Threat ?

False Positives from Antivirus
First off don't be alarmed when certain programs contained within the GEGeek Toolkit  give you a virus warning.
These are false positives, as these "tools" they are targeting are just that, tools. Tools that some bad
guys use to compromise systems. That is not the case here. There are tools included here that crack
passwords and reveal product keys, etc,  tools like that are causing the false positives, thinking that some
site has planted them on your drive. I encourage you to thoroughly test these programs, as I have, and
you will be convinced that they are not threats⁄viruses, but only tools.

Take Note Please:
-Download links change frequently for various reasons. I try my best to stay on top of these changes.
You have two choices: wait for the next release or modify the Ketarin download link yourselves.
All open software is used.
-I have no control over the speed of the down loads from various sites. Throttling, I am sure, is in place to prevent
hackers ⁄ abusers from overwhelming ⁄ trashing sites. Please do not abuse these sites by repeatedly downloading
updates. It's getting increasingly difficult to download software via Ketarin due to this escalating issue.

About the Program....
  
To launch the GEGeek Tech Toolkit
Simply point to the GEGeek Toolkit.exe program in the GEGeek_Toolkit Directory once extracted to the root
of C Drive. You must extract it to the root of the drive for ketarin updates to work. ex: C:\GEGeek_ToolKit
 




Once launched you will see a icon on your desktop and system tray:
Left click desktop icon to see the menu or right click system tray icon.
 


 
Some Sample Menu Listings when you left click on desktop icon.
 
 






Under the menu item GEGeek ver. 9.x" near the bottom of the Main Menu are some items to be observed:
Run Ketarin Update, WSCC Portable, System Stats, Reboot into Safe Mode (Self Explanatory)
I will discuss below what each menu item does.
 





Run Ketarin Update
The "Run Ketarin Update" is a program that will check for and download the latest version of the listed programs
from the progam's site, if available. It will automatically decompress the file if needed and configure⁄add itself
to the menu. Not all programs are available using this method, those that are not are updated manually by me.
 
When the Ketarin program is first displayed just select the "Update All" button at the bottom and go get some coffee.

When Some Ketarin Updates Fail
Should some updates fail, I would first manually check to see if the link is still valid. Could just be a temporary situation.
Sometimes the site is down for maintenance, the url has changed, major version change, etc, etc.
Sometimes you can just right Click on the failed update and force a download. Shown below...
Either way, I usually spot this, if the error persists, and repair it by the next release.
                 
How to force a download.
               

                        
                         
                         
Some programs keep updating every time I run Ketarin?
Please note that some programs, are by design, going to update every time you run Ketarin.
The download filename⁄size didn't change, yet the program version # did. To ensure I always have the latest
version of these programs I simply download them again. Just to be sure. There may have been other factors
as well that I have run across for doing this, so don't think this is an issue. This was by design. Which is why I
recommend updating only once per week. No need to update more frequently than that anyway.
                    
                 
                   
"WSCC Portable"
"Windows System Control Center" program.
This WSCC entry is a very similar program to this one and contains all the programs from Sysinternals, NirSoft and MS.
Just in case I missed a program in my menu system, this program will surely have it. You need to run and update
it from time to time as well since they have frequent updates to their programs. Just select the "Updates" button located
in the upper right of the program when you first launch it.



 
"System Stats"
If you'll notice, there's an entry for System Stats.
System Stats is based on the BgInfo program from Sysinternals and customized for use here.
 


The first thing I always do when I sit in front of a PC is find out what I am dealing with. I want no surprises later on!
When you run this program you will be shown a summary of all the important parameters of the system.
 
Below is a snapshot of my system's "System Stats"

 
Note:
The Tech Shop Docs I've included are for when you are without internet access and need a repair⁄reference
procedure with specific commands outlined. I've also included a pdf reader just for this situation.
  
Tell me how I can make this tool better!!!
Comments⁄Suggestions are always welcomed.

Typical Issues I've Seen Reported with the Toolkit
     

This is the preferred method of install to avoid any issues.   Note: I Use  7zip  - (32⁄64bit)  
1. After downloading the {filename}.7z file, you first need to unzip the file to the Root of C: drive.
2. Manually launch "GeGeek Toolkit.exe" from within the C:\GEGeek_Toolkit\ directory on C: drive.
3. An icon labeled Sy will then appear on your desktop and system tray. Both access the same program!
4. Either Left click desktop icon or Right click system tray icon for Menu.
5. Hover over the "GEGeek Ver 9.#" menu item near the bottom and click "Run Ketarin Update".
6. Now from Within the Ketarin program click "Update All". Go get coffee.  20-25 min  @ 40Mbps on my PC.  
7. When finished - Close Ketarin and the GEGeek Toolkit. Then Relaunch Toolkit and Test. Just precautionary.
8. Optional - Close Toolkit and Copy the GEGeek_Toolkit  Directory to Root of your Flash Drive.
9. Run the Ketarin Update Once Per Week, as some programs will always update.
0. For updates - Delete Entire Tookit from C: drive, install new ver and Sync to Flash Drive. It's what I do.
  
1> Corrupted or missing files when uncompressed:
Using the wrong ver of 7z  (32 or 64 bit)  or a corrupted download.
    
2> Trouble receiving newsletter updates:
First please check your spam folder. If not there then click the link below for other possible issues.
My subscribers aren't receiving my campaigns - What to check for.
    
3> Some programs update every time I run Ketarin -
This by design for problem programs to ensure I always get the latest version.
Therefore only update once per week. No need to update more frequently than that anyway.
   
4> When Some Ketarin Updates Fail:
Should some updates fail, I would first manually check to see if the link is still valid.
Could just be a temporary situation.Sometimes the site is down for maintenance, the url has
changed, major version change, etc, etc. Sometimes you can just right Click on the failed
update and force a download. Either way, I will eventually spot this and fix it with the next release.
 
5>  Some downloads fail with the error "Forbidden", as follows:
ex: Disk Speed Test    The remote server returned an error: (403) Forbidden.
This is usually due to Firewall⁄Security issues - mostly I've seen this on domains at work.
 
6> False Positives from Antivirus
First off don't be alarmed when certain programs contained within the GEGeek Toolkit  give you a virus warning.
These are false positives, as these "tools" they are targeting are just that, tools. Tools that some bad
guys use to compromise systems. That is not the case here. There are tools included here that crack

you will be convinced that they are not threats⁄viruses, but only tools.
Might have to turn off your AV and whitelist the entire GEGeek Toolkit directory.
