Keyboard & Mouse Hijacked because of download

I was referred to this site from another forum.  Here is how I got a "virus" from your download:


Starting at: http://www.imgburn.com/

ImgBurn v2.5.8.0 Released!  "Click here to dowload"

ImgBurn v2.5.8.0 (3,389 KB) "Mirror 7 - Provided by ImgBurn"

SetupImgBurn_2.5.8.0.exe Security Warning, do you want to continue? Yes

Welcome to the setup, Next>

EULA, check the box "I accept the terms of the License Agreement" Next>

Choose Components ("Main program files" is grayed out, but checked) I unchecked "icons and shortcuts" & "Install for All Users", Next>

Choose Install Location (default), Next>

Install AVG Toolbar (this is where things start to get decietful) "Standard installation" is defaulted (that was my mistake), check custom & uncheck boxes,  Next>

Install PureLeads (Express (recommended) ) is defaulted, check custom & uncheck install, Next>

"Would you like ImgBurn to periodically check if a newer version is available?", No

Installation Completed.

Auto open : "http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=installation_complete".


Now The problem is either PureLeads or AVG toolbar, because after accidentally installing those (they are deliberatly misleadingly built into your install) my mouse's double click would open properties on folders/programs & my keyboard would only do File, Edit, etc shortcuts and would not type.  A CTRL+SHIFT+ALT (Both left and right simultaniously) rectified this problem.  Please cosider re-designing these install piggybacks to not be so misleading because there is malicous content included and it makes you look deliberatly negligent by having it attached to your product.


Hope this helps others.
