The GEGeek Tech Toolkit is Donationware
Donate an amount that is "Reasonable" and I will send you a download link via email for
the toolkit, with free updates of course. I put a lot of time into this program making sure
it has all the latest tools and utilities and I do value my time. The program is updated
frequently with all the latest tools and utilities needed for Troubleshooting,Repairs, and
Maintenance. You will be notified via a GEGeek Toolkit Newsletter when new releases
are available. I'm sure you will find this toolkit not only very helpful and a big time saver,
but educational as well.

SyMenu is the new interface for the Toolkit and adds so much more power and customization
options to the toolkit. I created the foundation upon which you can add⁄delete⁄customize to
make it totally your own. Or if your time doesn't allow, you can simply leave it as and use my
personalized version of the program, which I typically update every month and in turn saves
you even more time. One of the best new features is being able to elevate a program to Run
as Admin, on the fly, which is sometimes required of the programs within the toolkit.

Help Section Below for some issues I've seen:
Typical Issues ⁄ Solutions ⁄ Concerns Reported with the Toolkit


Note:
Download links change frequently for various reasons. I try my best to stay on top
of these changes. If a ketarin link is broken you have two choices:
Wait for the next release or modify the Ketarin download link yourselves. All open
software is used. Also 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





Now, About the Program....



This Program is Rated 100% Safe.
  
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.




GEGeek Toolkit
Most Popular Windows Downloads and Posts of 2014


Sample Menu Listings Below:






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 or right click system tray icon to see the menu.
 


 
Run Ketarin Update
Once you've uncompressed the toolkit to the C:\GEGeek_Toolkit directory, the first thing you have to do is run the
Ketarin Update program to download all the programs used in the kit. 
 



 
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 and NirSoft Utility Suites Included
Also included in the kit are the WSCC and NirSoft Utility Suites. That gives you every possible program you could
ever need between my toolkit and their utlities.
With WSCC you have to run the update option from time to time.
 



The Tech Shop Docs
I've included these docs when you are without internet access and need a repair⁄reference procedure
with specific commands outlined.
  
 
Working Remote
When working in the field, as many a time we are called to do, it's nice to have access to your notes, or
favorite websites. I've included an Admin section for the field tech to remotely access critical info.
 
 
Tell me how I can make this tool better!!!
Comments⁄Suggestions are always welcomed.

0. For updates - Delete Entire Tookit from C: drive, install new ver and Sync to Flash Drive. It's what I do.
    Note:There is no update utility that just updates the changes since the last version.
  
 
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
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.
Might have to turn off your AV and whitelist the entire GEGeek Toolkit directory.
