Hi
When I put hirens boot cd 15.1 to CD and scan the disc it says it has 2 trojans on it, one of them is a force restart trojan, do you know the reason for this?
Many thanks

What anti-virus are you using? Does it tell you which programs it doesn't like?

I think it was false positives. Just downloaded and burned Hiren's 15.1 then scanned it with Avast and it had no objections. Expect you have McAfee which doesn't seem to like anti-malware tools very much.

No it doesn't. Your anti-virus just thinks it does. Which one is it?
