Once a computer user has obtained a copy of Hiren's BootCD by downloading and burning the program to a CD, the disk may be inserted into the CD drive and will autorun. The user should then follow the on-screen prompts for scanning and booting the computer.
As computers have become an indispensable part of people's lives, computer viruses have become an ever greater and more virulent plague. Viruses and malware can delete and corrupt data on any computer device, rendering the computer virtually useless. Hiren's BootCD contains diagnostic programs, including data recovery tools, BIOS tools, partitioning agents, and other troubleshooting and recovery tools. Inserting the CD into a functional CD drive on a computer, even with no operating system, boots the system and begins the repair process.
