    I use to like this and thought highly of it but now it installs Open Candy. Apparently mentioning this will get a review pulled. I'm not sure why fileforum has pulled the negative posts for this software...not good.

    Seems my and others reviews have disappeared.

    Installer contains Open Candy ! !

    If using something that blocks this from being installed it is a great little program.

    Common for freeware programs of this kind, BurnAware comes with an advertisement-based installer by OpenCandy. Installing this program should be done with the utmost care.

    This little app is sneaking up on ImgBurn. I think the average geek would prefer ImgBurn, but the average computer user would probably prefer Burn Aware.
