I also have not been able to get a clean imgburn download so I use either Roxio Easy CD and DVD Creator [about $30 at Wal*Mart] or CDBurnerXP [Free at https://www.cdburnerxp.se/en/download]. CDBurnerXP works on Windows up through and including Windows 10. I get the .iso file and since it is an exact image of the original disc I can create exact duplicates of that disc.

The .iso file of Windows and Linux LiveCD/LiveDVD and others contain the files necessary to boot to the disc. Simply copying the data from a disc to another disc doesn't get those files.

I downloaded imgburn off a torrent site as when I downloaded from their website and others it was full of adware that was picked up off a scan with malwarebytes.

So if I'm correct I burn ISO using imgburn at 4x speed and that makes it a bootable DVD correct, so if the worst was to happen I can just put the DVD in and reinstall windows with it?

Playback bear would you like me to upload my virus & malware free copy to my Dropbox and link here for you to download.

I've scanned it with malwarebytes & nod32 antivirus.

No need to download again - it will be the same file, an iso.

BTW - congrats at getting a Microsoft download
What do you mean the "OP" doesn't have show file extensions enabled....do you mean the winrar options?

I uninstalled winrar and now the file is showing as an ISO disk image file.

So hopefully should be able to burn to DVD and have a new copy of windows 7 with Service Pack 1 on it.

Within Windows, you have a check by this option:

Windows 7 SP1 OEM ISO - Microsoft Site-iso2.png



That makes the file named setup.exe show up as just setup.

Windows 7 SP1 OEM ISO - Microsoft Site-iso1.png

It also makes the ISO file extension not show up in the file's name.


Screenshots should be posted via these steps:

So do I need to uncheck the "hide file extensions" to successfully burn the ISO image as I just have one file now called win 7 pro 64 bit sp1.ISO.

I should just be able to burn that using imgburn and it will function like an exact windows disc.

It does not matter if the setting is checked or unchecked.

Way back in post #19, wasnotwas was attempting to point out that you did not need to download the file again. wasnotwas was attempting to tell you that the ISO file extension was there all along. It was simply hidden.

The Windows default is to hide file extensions if there is a program associated with the file extension.

While WinRAR was installed, ISO was a "known file extension" and thus hidden from view.

Once you uninstalled WinRAR, the ISO file extension became "unknown" and thus showed.

Clear as mud?

Sorry for not explaining 'known file types' fully.

Re : ImgBurn and other install exe's affected by Open Candy (which tries to install toolbars etc), you can usually circumvent the Open Candy cr*p by installing from a command line using the switch '/nocandy'. So if setup_ImgBurn.exe is on your desktop, open a cmd window, navigate to desktop, then type

'setup_ImgBurn.exe /nocandy'

without the quotes, (then enter). The program name must be typed exactly - underscores etc - but you can ignore uppercase.

I did this with latest ImgBurn, and only got one prompt - for Ask toolbar, which I declined. IIRC, this also works for Freemake. MediaInfo and a few others.
