Just making you aware of the policy, nothing more
As I understand it...Hiren's is a compilation of various tools from various sources that someone put together. It's, therefore, impossible to mention using a tool on that .iso...without implicitly or definitively mentioning Hiren's.
My take is...since Hiren's seems to be nothing other than a compilation of various tools developed by others...and who possibly are not given credit for their efforts...I would follow the website policy and not get embroiled in determining whether there are other copyright/use infractions involved...other than the one we associate with Microsoft.
I'm willing to bet...that a Google search of each tool listed as part of the Hiren's compilation...would result in better, more recently developed tools that also reflect proper credit to developers. Just a guess, based on what I found when poking around.
<<How am I to know if a program uses MS technology?>>
Google still works, right? I think the pronouncement I linked to...is pretty explicit about what is MS technology, as far as this website is concerned.
