The first thing to check is to make sure when you click a download link on any of the mirrors that you're actually clicking the download link.  Not one of the repackaged installers that generally include stuff you don't want.  Those links generally appear on the side of the pages.  Try this download directly: http://download.imgburn.com/SetupImgBurn_2.5.8.0.exe  That's the file directly from ImgBurn and I would think should be virus free.  Just downloaded it myself and ran a scan on it with AdAware AntiVirus, which returned nothing.


ImgBurn will never ask for your e-mail address as far as I know.  This forum might to confirm your account, but installing a real ImgBurn installation won't.


Also, there's a difference between a virus and a PUP, potentially unwanted program.  Some AV software flags the wraparound software offer as a PUP and will often say it's a virus when it's not.
