Hiren s Boot CD is a vast collection of bootable and portable utilities for the management, diagnosis and repair of computer problems, recover lost or deleted files or cracking passwords. In addition, HBCD provides a means to take control of any computer and communicate with other computers, surf the internet, write documents or programs, without booting the installed operating system. There are literally hundreds of utilities and it is advised that you explore the contents before the need for it arises.
Hiren s Boot CD can be used in two ways:
1. As a boot CD to take control of the computer without starting the installed operating system so that we can do repairs or clone the main disk, recover files, test the memory and hardware, clean severe viral infections, et.c. To do any of these simply boot the computer from the CD and select a utility from the menu. Note that the options include a couple of Linux rescue environments which provide many powerful tools for solving and repairing Windows and Linux problems.
2. As a collection of portable repair and diagnostic utilities which can be run from within Windows without installation. To do this insert the CD when Windows is running and select a utility from the HBCD Program Launcher menu. If the CD does not autorun you may start the menu by running \HBCD\HBCDMenu.exe.
When the operating system not functional or unavailable the portable utilities may be still be used if we boot the Mini Windows XP environment included in the CD. (4th option of the main boot menu).
For example Norton Ghost can be started in three ways:
-- Boot the CD, select Dos Programs and then Norton Ghost .
(useful if we wish to clone or restore the main hard disk and there is not enough memory to boot Mini Windows XP).
-- Boot the CD, select Mini Windows XP and then select Ghost from the HBCD Program Launcher menu.
-- Boot to your windows operating system, insert the CD and select Ghost from the HBCD Program Launcher menu.
Same for Acronis.
-- Can be booted from HBCD Dos menu (older versions).
-- Can be Booted directly from main menu (2011 versions).
-- Run from Mini XP (Thanks Ha Son ).
-- Run from installed Windows XP/Vista/7.
This Restored DVD includes all the utilities found in the original Hiren s Boot CD 15.0 (October 2011). It is called Restored because it contains all the commercial utilities omitted from the official releases (since version 11.0.) It also includes other tools such by Acronis, Paragon, Active, and other useful software fully integrated within Hiren s menus.
Below are listed only the additional programmes and utilities found in this DVD. The numbers in square brackets  are referring to the URLs listed at the bottom of this file. For the complete list of utilities in the official Hiren s Boot CD, read the files HBCD.txt and changes.txt, or visit
