If you are concerned about OpenCandy, block Internet access during installation. (This applies to most programs offering OpenCandy as well as some other PUPs.) CDBurnerXP also offers a minimal version which contains no extra software, as well as a portable version containing no extra software.
NOTE: This post may not be completely up to date, as I now use the portable version and have not downloaded either installer for quite some time.

An excellent CD/DVD program. Personally, I'm not bothered by the OpenCandy "Malware". The OpenCandy module runs only during installation of the hosting program (CDBurnerXP). It poses a very minor privacy issue by sending to the server a list of your installed program (without identifying information), and then offers a program or two to you, which you should refuse, (unless you consciously decide you want it). The list of installed programs is not kept, and if you refuse the installation of those extra offers, no harm is done.
If I'm concerned about OpenCandy's privacy, that I should be much more concerned with Microsoft's and Google's privacy policies which are by far more invasive.
