Ever since I learned on Wikipedia about the Freemake Virus, I have become a lot more skeptical of installing software on my Dell Inspiron 7558 from software developers Windows SmartScreen fails to identify. I enjoyed having Freemake Video Downloader and Freemake Video Converter until I learned why a very strange program called "WinPCap" kept appearing in the programs and features menu after I kept uninstalling it, uninstalling it, uninstalling it: Freemake installs extra software on your computer even if you decline the offers in the installer! I deep cleaned my hard drive and made sure to re-install only programs that do not come with anything not described in even the fine print. Here today, January twenty-fourth, two thousand seventeen, I am considering re-installing ImgBurn 18.104.22.168, but only if I receive proof from either the software developer or an expert witness that the installer downloaded directly from www.imgburn.com does not come with anything other than ImgBurn if I decline all of the offers.
LIGHTNING UK!, you've been adamant about ImgBurn not containing any kind of unwanted software in the preceding two years. Please give me as much evidence as you can without compromising any kind of security or privacy of the ImgBurn installer from its official website not introducting anything to our computers except the capability of making copies of DVDs and saving them as ISO files to whatever storage medium we please. Much like in a courtroom, I expect the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Furthermore, some users have complained about security software installed on their computers raising alarms of viruses, specifically Trojans. If this is no better than a false alarm of a malicious program, you really should work on a minor update so the installer doesn't look suspicious to our security software programs. If you very much appreciate people using your free program, make it look like it by shaking things up a bit a priority between now and the end of this year, starting with making sure it IS innocent, and LOOKS innocent. I've made myself a promise: installers that APPEAR to contain unwanted code will be deleted and possibly reported to the authorities.
I've rambled on long enough. In a nutshell, all I need to get back to backing up my DVDs as ISO files is an explanation from someone who knows more than a thing or two about information security that ImgBurn is actually a free program, not a gimmick to generate revenue from advertising, or even worse, using or disseminating my identity! Don't forget, especially if you want to win some of the users you have lost because of these alarms of a suspicious program, update ImgBurn to put these alarms to bed!
I am marking my Outlook calendar to check this blog post every three days for the next thirty days. I certainly hope I get a convincing response by this time next month.
