    Hi

    What's going on at StartDisk.com??

    Every time I download a copy of the "Ultimate Boot Disk", my Norton
    Antivirus finds a WipeCMOS virus in the file.

    I'd like to try this thing out. Meyers recommends it in his All-In-One
    Certification book.

    Does anyone know a safe site?

    I've tried several other websites. They ALL have the virus...

    thx
    Andrew

    Hi,

    The Ultimate Boot Disk is safe, but Norton advice you, that WipeCMOS
    could be a dangerous file (it could be use by a hacker who want to reset
    your CMOS password).

    WipeCMOS is not a virus.

    You should desactivate your Norton when downloading this disk, and
    activate it after.

    Bye
