very useful when I still have to debug my PC and half the things on my PC don't work and need diagnosing (MEMTEST, etc)
Hiren's has saved my bacon endless number of times. I used to do a lot of software testing on my PC (moved on to testing in virtual machines) and would get into a lot of problems undoing the damages. Although discontinued, it is highly recommended for any mess up you might encounter on Windows, even if you are not into too much messing around with your PC. Viruses, adware, bad turn offs, all can cause your PC to go down when you least expect it.
Always manage to aid me during recovery of my PC and made it quicker and easier.
DLCboot.com is the best alternative to Hirens boot in my opinion.
