BEWARE of ImgBurn
Feb 3, 2014

Downloaded ImgBurn, free DVD burning software. Big mistake, chuck full of malware.

The download installed two more programs without my consent and no option to opt out.

My anti-virus, system protection, system restore all shut down. Unable to delete any of the unwanted stuff, in add or remove programs.

There were no warnings at all, it took only seconds to mess up my computer.

Fortunately I keep a "clean" copy of my of my OS on a spare drive. That saved the day.

We don't seem to have control over our PC's anymore. Adobe flash player updated and installed a McAfee file without my consent as well. What's next ???
