I know this post will get locked and unanswered but i thought i would give you a chance to explain to me and others that have this issue why we have to deal with malware? I accidently mis-clicked on a next tab which resulted in the Delta Search Bar being installed and now im in the process of removing it and re-adding all my chrome extensions because of this. I also need to do a full malware scan with malwarebytes now because of this which i dont think is fair to your users do you?

So why do you have software that installs malware?
Where did i download from? Oh YOUR site!

 

Mirror 7 - Provided by ImgBurn (Currently hosting v2.5.8.0)

All i want is an explenation on why you let such horrible software be installed on users computers, i also got something called tuneup utilities all from a mis-click.

For others that get this "crap" here is the removal instructions Thanks LighteningUK for the malware!

After reading some other posts i can see my post will defiantly be locked followed by basically a response of you dont care that you install malware on peoples machines. I guess i should always scan applications before running them even if i did "once" trust there application.

Its sad to see a good program being used for bad things but i guess there is nothing you cna do when the dev dont care, oh well...

If you've read the other related threads then you'll know that what you get offered by the opencandy platform as part of imgburn's installation process can vary. If you accept the offers then that's out of my hands. I don't know what's offered to a specific user and play no part in the installation of accepted offers. If the uninstallation process of a given app is really that bad then I'll mention it to opencandy as that goes against their policies.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!

Sorry to say but you chose opencandy and its offers so the buck lands with you not them, even your installer is marked as malware because of opencandy so you are the one responsible for not fully investingating the company you chose. Anyway i un-installed the malware and your application i just wanted to see what your response was and it was "its not me! its them!" you may close thise im using alternative software and will stay away from imgburn in future.

OK so that makes about 10-12 users who -maybe- quit using the program because they blame the author for problems that they helped to cause by just clicking away.  Wonder how the rest of the millions of users got around the opencandy 'instantly infecting everyone on the house with some kinda crap' syndrome :whatever: .... oh maybe they didn't  whine because they read and followed along while installing the program. :readbook:

 

I don't know, just wondering out loud. :frustrated:

I would ask if you know the difference between a mis-click and clicking away but your american and are always trigger happy so that will not work, but in laymen's terms for your small mind i read every page and then accidentally clicked on one not seeing what it said this is a mis-click.

As for the millions of downloads you have mentioned in two threads now, the majority of them were before the malware installs, im betting the download rate has actually slowed down since the malware has appeared but this is something that the admin is not bothered about as long as he gets some money from opencandy the company that he claims is the cultprit of the malware but says is not his fault even though he approved them (he's obviously not too smart).

Now i'll leave these forums because its pointless arguing with an admin that does not care about anything other than money from a malware installing company and an idiotic american who still dresses up in his mothers underwear, yes i found the pictures on the net they were not hidden well try again.  :whatever:  :whatever:  :whatever:

Well, the millions of downloads that I mentioned are for the current version there were no additions to the loader after it was released.  In your utopian world people may not need to make a buck or two on their program.  But in the world that most of us exist in, being paid for something isn't a bad thing.  

 

The line about my mothers underwear was funny.

 

Oh well, I guess being an American is reason to be attacked by a maladjusted dipshit instead of his just admitting that he screwed the pooch with a fast click one time.  

And as for your not coming back.... it really won't be that big a deal  :horse:  asshole.
