It has been hijacked and distributed warez sites.. but as far as I was aware Hirens is not warez... I almost live on the tools on that cd..esp HDD regen.. If its warez I have been living a lie..

    Thanks for clarifying that undertaker, I have made/used UBCD and it is very very useful, only problem is as you said it is not as straightforward as burn and play... I think it took me about an hour the first time I made one but it was worth it. I would post my image of it somewhere only I believe that would be classed as warez since it contains part f the windows OS and possibly my PID.
