Hello, I just joined. I joined to ask a question, but in the meanwhile, I found a solution. But now that I have joined, I might as well ask the question I was going to ask.


I had a previously downloaded setup for, and when I scanned it, my AV showed that there was a virus (not-a-virus) in Fusion.dll. I then extracted the ImgBurn installer using 7zip and scanned the folder, and allowed my AV to remove Fusion.dll. When I clicked on the ImgBurn icon (in the folder), it immediately started the program, without any installation. Is it safe to run the program this way - by safe, I mean not whether there's a threat from the virus, but whether the program will work properly without being installed? This is the question I registered on the forum for.


As I said, in the meanwhile, I found a solution: I downloaded ImgBurn, same version, from the ImgBurn site again, and there's no virus in the installer now.To be sure, I linked the setup file to Virus Total, and three AVs flagged a virus:




The major AVs like Kaspersky and Bitdefender didn't flag it, so it's probably fine, but just though I'd ask.

It should be fine.*

*When upgrading from an earlier version, the installer does reset certain settings if they'll cause an issue with that release.

ImgBurn has only ever been a single exe, so there are no other files to worry about - if you ignore the previewer tool and the sound files.
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!
