Hi everyone, I just want to find out. I just made a purchase from the following website and it's basically a multitask utilities disk that you can create in order to boot into windows if you are having problems. The chap on the website mentiones that some antivirus products recognise what's known as false positives, he's words on the website. I have created the disk already and I checked it out by booting up from my cd rom drive and the utilities on the disk appeared as mentioned. However, my Norton 360 did start to pick up labels like Trojan horse and an other virus. He says not to worry about this.

What I want to know is, does anyone know anything about this website and has anyone being using the utilities on this website? I would be grateful for any info. My intention is to use this disk in order to help my friends boot up their systems when they won't boot into windows. Any advice and info much appreciated. Thanks. Andrew

Hi do not know it either but do not spend money on things you can get freely Ultimate Boot CD - Overview and work very well

Hi, thanks for that information. I've had a look at the Ultimate Boot CD link and it seems fine although it also mentions the false positives in relation to antivirus programs when using the cd. Thanks for your help. Andrew

If he's using freely available software (open source) I doubt that it's legit to charge for them. And if it's not open source then I doubt he'll have the author/vendor's permission to use it. Either way, as has already been said, there are plenty of freely available apps that will do all the things mentioned.

I don't know anything about that disc either, but agree with the others. Some of the false positives on discs like these come from legit utilities that can be dangerous to use, or from ones that pull up passwords and serial #s. You'd have to scan the apps to be sure.

Hi and thanks for your information. I may have been taken for a ride it seems!
