Ad-Aware 9.6 (free) & Hirenís BootCD 15.1Ad-Aware Hirens
Posted 29 April 2012 - 07:55 PM
I downloaded Hiren's BootCd zip file from http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/ and unzipped it, as always I ran AVG and Ad-Aware against the files. AVG came up clean, Ad-Aware reported a file as a virus. The FAQ on Hirens web site says "The files downloaded from our website are NOT edited, they are the original files. The most common files we are getting reports are "HBCDMenu.exe, HBCDCustomizer.exe, R-Kill.com, konboot.gz". Please note, they do NOT contain a virus. If you are getting a virus warning, that is a false positive. Please report the file as a false positive via your antivirus software. During that time you should disable your antivirus or add the related file to your antivirus software's exceptions list for a problem free use."
Hopefully someone from Lavasoft will see this and respond.
