Safely install ImgBurn without OpenCandy malware
Without a doubt ImgBurn is an awesome ISO creation too. However, at some point in the past they started bundling OpenCandy with ImgBurn. OpenCandy is an adware application that many people feel falls within the definition of malware or spyware. This is obviously quite a bummer!
From some of the licensing text and the way the options are presented during installation it seems like OpenCandy installation is inevitable. 🙁 However, if you are willing to check some options and uncheck some boxes you can get a completely adware free version of ImgBurn to install! 🙂 Here are the steps:
#1 Proceed normally through the install process, but be careful and watch for screens similar to the following. The ‘OpenCandy’ portion of the installer is going to present you with some ‘Recommended by ImgBurn’ apps and you want to do everything in your awesome powers to prevent them from installing!
Voila, enjoy your totally awesome non-OpenCandy ImgBurn experience, woot!!!
