Editors' Review

This quick and easy utility helps expert users download and construct select boot disks. WinBuilder bootstraps itself on first execution. The app opens a manual and download center to allow users to choose which projects to install. The manual uses a novice-friendly interface, but this program expects experienced users. For the most part, boot disk applications are for experts only.

WinBuilder's Download Center interface simplifies procuring the boot disk applications. This app is designed from the ground up to allow users to choose from many options. Users first choose project servers. At testing, 10 servers offered 10 different boot disk applications. The Download Center then makes it easy to download only what is needed for each chosen application. Users merely pick from four pull-down items: Minimum, Recommended, Complete, or Beta. The app helpfully displays the number of files and their total size for each boot disk application. In addition, simple checkboxes easily remove specific scripts from the download process. After download, WinBuilder offers simple installation wizards for each of the downloaded applications.

WinBuilder is one of the most easy-to-use boot disk creation tools in the genre. Testers praised its small size, fair memory overhead, simple instructions, and robust application installation wizards. This freeware belongs in the toolbox of every expert user.

    "GREAT --- does what it's suppose to do and more!"

    February 03, 2011   |   By cooljmans25

    Version: WinBuilder 074

    Pros

    Helps you build live windows discs, customize the builds and then export your customized builds for posting on a site, or burn the complication to a CD. Free and community, donations, and ad-powered.

    Cons

    Requires the windows CD for the version your building and might set off your antivirus, causing errors. The interface might be tricky for beginners.

    Summary

    This software is definitely not for basic users. It lets you create bootable windows CDs (live CDs) which can aid you when your PC is malfunctioning or has a virus, or if you need to back it up and you can't access Windows or Safe Mode. Works ok, but uses some dead virus samples (won't infect your PC) to catch viruses (works the same way as Human Virus/Flu Vaccinations work) which might set off your antivirus.
