I feel deceived. Your app was once clean of any adware and was very efficient. So I installed your last version being confident, I unchecked the request for installing an add bar and went on with the express install since the advanced install appeared greyed out.

Without any request popup Opencandy installed Delta Search which hijacked IE, Firefox and Chrome and Browser Defender which installed a service at startup. Delta Search was a real pain to remove.

Looking at the forums I am not the only one feeling deceived. 

I hope you will ban OpenCandy or at least warn clearly the users before installing it, meanwile I will find an alternative to ImgBurn.

Since this is your first post and all... :bye3:

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming -- WOW-- What a ride


We do not discuss ripping here. If you need help with that, Google it...if you can't accept that, move on!

There is no 'express' option in imgburn's installation process. If that's what you saw then it was for an opencandy product offering.
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!
