Imgburn works great for data CDs and DVDs. It also supports music CDs but I can't say that I've ever used it for that. http://imgburn.com/
And yes, if you uninstall it via "Add and Remove Software" it will remove all the system files. If you have any saved projects, it probably wont' remove those though. If that's something you want to keep, I'd still make a copy somewhere else just in case.
