Just for the record, I use a flash drive based program called PortableApps, it contains a bunch of system tools I use when repairing PCs. I also use GeGeek ToolKit. These are good, useful tools that are not malware but some security programs, including MSE and ASC will flag them as hacktools.
This is because they give me access to files I would normally not have access to. Hence being seen as a tool for hacking. NOT necessarily a bad thing, in the right hands.
This said, I normally whitelist those "hacktools". I need them and know how to use them.
DISCLAIMER: This reply is for informational purposes only. I do not advocate the use of hacktools by those not skilled in using them.
