I recall Ashampoo software quite well, if you accept it, better get a bottle of Advil or a fifth of good liquor to go with it, as you'll need some relief. They once sent me a "gift pack" of any five of their listed softwares that I wanted, with no obligation to buy anything, around either Easter or Christmas a few years back.
What a mess that was, their Internet Security was alright, believe that Bitdefender or Emsisoft was the real scan engine. But the rest was pure junk, yes the DVD software too, along with the Internet Speed "Optimizer" & the other two. I ran the Internet Security for a year & that was it. No more Ashampoo software for me.
You can get ImgBurn, the one that I use on Windows from File Hippo. They carry a lot of popular Free Windows software. Like with any other place that ships freebies, just take it slow during the install process & make sure not to accept 3rd party crap. You do have to accept Open Candy software to get ImgBurm od CDBurnerXP, but the free version of Malwarebytes will get rid of the Open Candy adware.
Now as to your issue with Linux. Never accept too much advice at once & do not remove any existing software (such as Brasero) until you know with 100% certainty that the new one works. The software that ships with Linux Mint is fine, I just added k3b & more recently Xfburn, though still haven't use the latter yet, as just discovered it on the same page I linked prior.
I get what you are saying about the Linux vs. Windows, but still there is no denying that windows is a little more user friendly.
OK, I'll agree that most Windows software is more "user friendly", with everything being a click or double click away, but at what price? From your postings & by your own admission of being infection prone, the answer is obvious, in order for Windows to be so user friendly, there has to be a catch & there is. The Windows customer is always one click away from disaster. Really good security software will catch most, such as ESET NOD32, Emsisoft Anti Malware & a few others, combined with Malwarebytes Premium as an enforcer to catch the rats that the other misses.
And you have to run scheduled scans on Windows OS's daily. Not one of the two minute scans, but at a minimum a "smart scan" (Threat Scan with Malwarebytes), daily. Plus all the other things to maintain a Windows computer. Disk Cleanup, Defrag, Security Scans, Backup 2x weekly. And the bonus, you get to do it all over again tomorrow.
With Linux Mint, most all of this daily maintenance is forgotten, ancient stuff. Yes you should to run some form of virus scanner for if you have an email client installed, especially any that you're going to forward to a Windows user, it's just the right thing to do, but still, it's optional. There is a ESET NOD32 4 for Unices (Linux) that I use, being familiar with the brand, I trust it. However, there's 100% Free options for Linux, some in the Software Manager. You should already have chkrootkit & rkhunter installed, these are for rootkits & in the Software Manager. And ClamTK, which I believe I linked you awhile back. This is good to scan the Linux folders with, but Never scan a Windows partition with it, as if you clean anything, the install will be toasted.
And finally one last thing. You don't need to scan everything you do on Linux, though it's best to get most of your software from the Software Manager, where these has been pre-scanned for you & 100% safe. Some options like Google Chrome, you do have to manually download, but don't need to run a virus scan on it. It's also the only way to get the latest ClamTK (direct link for app). Debian or Ubuntu 13/14 DEB

When installing ClamTK, you'll get a warning that an "older" version is available in the Software Channel (Software Manager). Yes, they're right, 3-4 versions behind older. It's best to have up to date security apps & you can run scheduled scans with ClamTK. You do need to go into the Configuration of it (top item on the interface) & be sure that all six boxes are checked for scanning, beginning with "Scan for PUA's". Check all of the other options too. These scans aren't long at all. It's the Home folder, where your browser items, downloads & all, needs to be scanned. You should do this weekly, more if you download a lot, of if you have a Mail Client such as Thunderbird.
Hang in there, most all of us, no matter the financial situation, goes through rough times in life. Money can get a lot of things done, but it cannot buy happiness, nor perfect health.
Wake up every day & say to yourself that you're going to make the best of it, & do your part to make it happen. Having a good outlook on life & positive attitude are great virtues to have. Got me through some very trying times.
All the Best,
