There's nothing in the installer besides ImgBurn itself and the OpenCandy plugin ( http://www.opencandy.com/ ) that inserts 3rd party product offering 'pages' within the installation wizard. If you don't want what you're offered on those pages, simply opt out of installing them.

Hi

 

Use 7zip to extract ImgBurn to a separate folder to avoid the installer and OpenCandy.

If you like ImgBurn (which you will), please consider a donation to offset not installing OpenCandy.

 

I hope this doesn't violate any rule you may have Lightning UK, I'm a longtime malware fighter (since 96) and users should have the right to decide what gets installed on their machines.

Your software is fantastic and I'd hate to see people get turned off from using it because of something like this.

Cheers!

 

Dave

How about NOT having OpenCandy at all, because NO ONE WANTS THAT CRAP.

 

You're letting yourself and ImgBurn down so much. Shame on you.
