You should take a look at www.knoppix-std.org ... it is a bootable CD that contains lots of tools and you can customize 
it with more if you are willing to remaster the CD yourself.  It does a lot of what you are looking for in a 'universal

        Subject: System Security Audits

          I have a question about doing system (Windows) security
          By system security audits I mean things like checking if computer
          is free of malware, trojans, viruses, if user has appropriate
          permissions (not too high or to say if user has restrictive
          permissions) etc.
          I have a couple of ideas which i could use, one is to create
          an universal CD with all the stuff needed. Everything is on the
          CD, nothing will be installed on the client's computer.
          The Audit Team just puts CD in, runs applications and that's it.
          The other is to bool from a CD on the client's computer
          which would bring us to some different environment (probably
          linux). As booted mount the filesystems and do all the
          audit stuff from such environment.
          Or, please, suggest any other methods that could be used.
