I took the Win10 upgrade (from Win7) and I've been installing the rest of my programs. One program that I wanted back was ImgBurn.
I never used it a lot, but it was always a good/lightweight program to have on hand. That being said, many people (including myself) have been well aware of the fact that Lightening UK (the company that publishes this freeware) has been known over the last couple of years to partner themselves with others that install crapware with the installation of the program. Fortunately, (in previous years) it seems safe enough to work around that by carefully doing a custom install and making sure the appropriate boxes were checked (or unchecked) during the install. However, what's interesting now is the fact that I can't even get it downloaded using Google Chrome. It's not a compatibility problem with Win10 but rather Google seeing the entire download as crapware and rejecting it outright. The bigger question now becomes, should I even attempt to reinstall this program? Has the crapware in the published links of Imgburn gotten so bad that it's not even recommended to install the software?
Windows 10 compatibility - posted in ImgBurn Support: Is your program compatible with Windows 10?
If that is the case, can someone give me another alternative for a lightweight dependable CD/DVD burning program that is now popular? Thanks for any replies here. PS It's a shame that Lightening UK has partnered themselves with crapware. There was a time where anyone could download that program and not even worry about a custom installation--let alone now days where a browser (like Chrome) won't even accept the download. I have BurnAware Free and it works well. It doesn't give all the info about what's going on like ImgBurn does but it does pretty much everything. ImgBurn carried over during my Win 10 upgrade so I still have that as well.
