    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.

    Program is useful but installs OpenCandy adware that is explicitly noted only in EWULA!! Other burning tools are available, such as AnyBurn, that do not have adware.

    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.
