    Hi all,

    I've tried to burn the antiX Linux iso on a disc, with 3 different Image Burning programs (ImgBurn, BurnAware, Windows Image Burner), but, in all 3 instances, i got a security alert from nProtect MBR Guard informing me (in Korean) that the respective exe is trying to access the MBR.

    Does the Image Burning process need to access the MBR?

    OR

    Is there a known conflict between Image Burning software, in general, and nProtect MBR Guard?

    I went ahead and disabled the nP MBR Guard prior to seeing your post/link. Indeed, that did the job. Thank you for answering, though.

    If it wasn't for the security alert of the nP utility (or your answer, for that matter), i would have kept believing that these MBR Guards protect only the system partition's MBR.

    Also, i was under the impression that, on a SUA, MBR's creation/modification is always prevented by the UAC...
