Negative Review by commenting about ImgBurn and InfraRecorder, Jun 2012

installation wrapper contains malware, opencandy, and installs a variety of malware if the naive users fails to "opt" out.

Yes, it does.

There is a big difference between being "careful what [...] you click" and being careful what you don't click. Especially when the adware is presented under the guise of being a security feature, misleading less informed users.

But for all I know you're the developer, who appears to have gone through great lengths to remain anonymous.

Given the choice between open source software and freeware with malicious* adware packed in, I'll take the open source software any day. Especially when there's feature parity.

*Note that the software will even try to prevent changes to the browser settings after replacing the home and search pages.

I'm not the developer, I just like the software.

Are you sure this is an original installer, and not a wrapper from some download repository like cnet? I have te same version, that just installs imgburn, and does not contain this screen, nor any adware.

The file in question was downloaded at http://download.imgburn.com/SetupImgBurn_2.5.8.0.exe

So, no, straight from the source.

(Tested on a Windows XP Pro virtual machine.)

Weird. Maybe it's because I use spywareblaster or that my firewall is set very strict? Often this sort of crap is downloaded during installation.

Review by highwaykind about ImgBurn and Nero Burning ROM, InfraRecorder, Jan 2011

I really like that it's free, but I can't seem to drag/drop files into a compilation (have to click a bunch of buttons first), nor can I quick-erase a DVD+RW (I can only full erase, which takes ages. I guess my TTSCorp cheap drive is not supported?).

So back to Infrarecorder it is, much better interface (drag drop) and a working quick erase option.
Even though that has the big disadvantage of burning slower...

Nero combines speed with quick erase and the easy interface, but even then it's really not worth the current 50 euro they're asking. I'd rather wait 10 more minutes per disk.
