I am pretty sure Hiren's Boot CD isnt legal , let alone be freeware , it contains full versions of many commercial softwares

While this collection of tools can be very useful, potential users should note that many of the tools are commercial applications that have not been legally licensed for redistribution, and so download/use/sharing of Hiren's BootCD may be illegal (depending on your legal jursidiction).
