Unhappy IMGBurn

It concerns me that your top rated burning software, ImgBurn comes with the Conduit.Search malware bundled into the installer and your review fails to mention that fact.

While the installer does provide notification and the option to not install Conduit.Search, it is my opinion that Conduit.Search deserves to be classified as "malware" and that potential installers of this software be warned of its presence in advance.

I don't think we can make it any plainer having included a warning in bold plus a link to our own information article.

Had you done a little research first, you would know that the exact makeup of the bundled components is variable and controlled by OpenCandy and not the software developers who sign up with them. Furthermore, the mix of bundled components presented on install will vary between machines depending on what the initial OC scan finds.

We have also published a more general information page on this subject here.
