ILLEGAL XP Boot / Warez CD/DVD!! Please remove the post mentioning Hiren's above (and this one as well since it's just clutter).

It's listed on google and appears legitimate to most all search engines.
I can find NO copy right software on it.

Garry,

You had no spaces between the period before http and after HTM,
that's why the link didn't work. After Bob posted, that was corrected.
You don't have to use the 'Link' button as long as you use HTTP in
the URL and leave spaces before and after the entire address :)
