Just now I checked Google for "alex feinman iso recorder virus" and got some 200,000 hits. I started reading some of the postings - a lot of anguish there.These warnings have been going on regularly since 2004. Why is that product suggested for new Linus Mint users? Wouldn't a warning be more appropriate than a recommendation??

But, yes ... a 'warning' should be implemented.
And why did you select this 'iso recorder' in the first place?
I've never heard of it before, nor do I know anyone that has used it.
Did you manage to get LinuxMint downloaded and installed?
If you’re running Windows you can use a program like ISO Recorder or InfraRecorder:
