Installation Instructions

Unfortunately ImgBurn has prebundled Malware/Spyware embedded within its installer which installs by default.

Its still an extremely useful program and this junk can be avoided by using a custom installation. Launch the .exe.

7 Here ensure that you do not select the "Express Install (recommended)" which is actually unrecommended.


Select custom install (advanced) and uncheck all Linkury which will install a toolbar, change your search provider and homepage. Essentially it will hijack your browser(s).


Next ensure that you do not select the "Express Install (recommended)" which again is unrecommended.


Again uncheck the box to install the prebundled TuneUp Utilities 2014. This is a TuneUp program which in my opinion often does more harm than good. Such programs will tell you have x registry errors and opt to fix 3 and get you to pay up to fix the rest. They usually kill the performance of the PC. Select next.


ImgBurn will install.


It will then ask you whether you want to periodically check for a newer version. Here I usually select No.


The setup is then completed and you may select close. You can now use ImgBurn without the Malware.

Note if you have installed ImgBurn with the embedded Malware by mistake follow the tutorials here.

The example given is a clean install of Windows 8.1 on a VM with the Malware from a default ImgBurn install.
