Ad-Aware 9.6 (free) & Hiren’s BootCD 15.1

Recommended Posts

I am not sure if this is the correct place to post this issue.

I downloaded Hiren's BootCd zip file from [url="http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/"]http://www.hirensbootcd.org/download/[/url] 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 [b]"HBCDMenu.exe, HBCDCustomizer.exe, R-Kill.com, konboot.gz".[/b] Please note, they [b]do NOT contain a virus.[/b] If you are getting a virus warning, that is a [url="http://www.hirensbootcd.org/faq/#"]false positive[/url]. 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.
