DVD Burning Software ImgBurn Updated. Turns Adware
Ever since I discovered the DVD burning software ImgBurn I never looked back and have used it for all my CD and DVD burning tasks since. ImgBurn supports all the operations that I require of a CD/DVD writing program, and then a bunch more that I use occasionally.
It may not be the easiest program to use, but once you get the hang out of it you are probably never going to change the program again.
ImgBurn was recently updated by the developer. The new version is available at the developer's websites. Regular users of ImgBurn will notice some changes besides the updates to the program itself.
There are two adware related entries that might get installed during the installation of the DVD burning software if you are not carefully during the installation of it on your system
The program tries to place a Uniblue shortcut on the desktop and to install the Ask Toolbar. Both of which can be unselected so that they are not installed.
More problematic than those choices are three new entries in the Tools menu of the burning software that also lead to the Uniblue website.
These options do however not reduce the value of ImgBurn itself. The developer has fixed more than a dozen bugs in the new version and added or changed dozens of other features as well. Most of these new features and updates are under the hood and will likely not be recognized by most users. The latest version of the DVD burning software ImgBurn can be downloaded from the developer's website.
So, the only thing you need to do is to make sure that the toolbar does not get installed on your system, unless you want to use it that is. Remember that you give back to the developer of the program if you install the toolbar.Advertisement
