Edit: I discovered the issue must be with the mirror. I downloaded from imgburn.com (in the mirror list) and am now using this awesome simple tool successfully. My rant below was not for the fault of the ImgBurn developer as I originally thought, but the fault of a sneaky mirror host.

 

I have used ImgBurn for years and love it. Today I would recommend nobody try to install it because the installer I got from a link from ImgBurn.com mutilated my brand new PC. I specifically declined third party installs but that was not respected by the installer, and after I finally got rid of the malware using Malwarebytes Internet explorer was left in an unworking state (I can ping using cmd just fine). I cannot download anything to fix my PC and of course since it's brand new I haven't downloaded any other browsers.

Shame on you, developing fine software only to eventually use it to deliver malware. Unfortunately having once remembered ImgBurn as a go-to utility I will now remember it as a scar.

Which mirror did you download it from?

I got the history, and it looks like the mirror was "Digital Digest." I first was at the first address below, and that page took me to the second address for the download.

What you’ve done there is click on an advert and download something totally different.

I understand. May I suggest you stop linking this particular mirror? It's one thing to download something one doesn't want, it's entirely another thing to download a malware bomb.

I would like to reiterate that mirrors who host malware-containing advertisements are an obvious problem. I'll donate $100 in the next week if you remove the DD mirror (I know that's not much but it's what I can offer). Other than that I can only advise anyone who reads this to take care and view the screenshot above.
