    Imgburn and Bloatware Add-ons

    John T Smith Adobe Community Professional & MVP

      I (will still) recommend Imgburn http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download for Windows DVD/BluRay writing

       

      BUT... be careful and read the install screens when installing, or you will have add-ons installed by default

       

      1st add-on screen includes AVG toolbar & search... select custom install and uncheck the default option

       

      2nd add-on screen includes Sendori (whatever that is)... select custom install and uncheck the default option

       

      I just updated my Imgburn 257 to 258 and after unchecking the add-ons at BOTH screens, Imgburn installed with no add-ons

       

      I guess the author is not receiving enough PayPal donations, and had to "bundle" other software to pay for his development time

       

      Added... also, with NO bloatware or add-ons, I use/recommend http://www.terabyteunlimited.com/image-for-linux.htm for system backups

       

      Image runs off of a bootable CD via Linux (the Zip you download includes a program to make the bootable CD) and it reads EVERYTHING on the drive, even the hidden registration information, so everything is restored when needed... and you may restore the image to a brand new drive in case of a crash, and not have to re-install anything
