Comodo Antivirus v8
Detect, block and remove malware

Comodo Antivirus is a powerful antivirus tool that uses multiple layers of protection to keep your PC malware-free.

A behavioural scanning system watches running processes for suspect behaviour, for example, uncovering even zero-day threats before they can cause any damage.

Cloud-based whitelisting and detection systems improve accuracy, cut false positives, and deliver a faster response to new malware.

Back on your own PC, Comodo's Defense+ technology alerts you to applications that behave suspiciously. And if you download a program which you're not entirely sure is safe, then using Comodo's Sandbox allows you to run it in an isolated environment, where it won't be able to affect the rest of your PC.

Of course you also get a strong core antivirus engine, which scans all the files you access to detect and remove incoming threats. Explorer integration allows you to scan selected files, folders or entire drives from a right-click menu option, while the scheduler runs regular scans, even when you're not around.

New features this time include an auto-sandboxing policy, which by default keeps dubious programs isolated from your PC.

If this doesn't suit your needs, no problem: it's now possible to set up your own auto-sandboxing rules, using parameters like file reputation and origin.

Comodo Antivirus 8 now takes advantage of hardware virtualisation when available, allowing the program to operate at the hypervisor level.

An improved Viruscope makes it easier to monitor your system for unwanted applications.

Comodo Antivirus logs events to the Windows Event Logs, useful when you're troubleshooting.

This all comes packaged in a flat-look interface, which has also been redesigned to simplify navigation.

Verdict:

Comodo Antivirus is a powerful antivirus tool, highly configurable and with plenty of interesting features. You won't necessarily be able to get by with the default settings, though - this isn't an "install and forget" program. You'll need to monitor closely what the program is doing to get the best results, so it's really not for security beginners

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 (v11.0.6)

Free Full Commercial Software

Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 is a compact, simple, but surprisingly feature-packed disc burning suite.

The program makes it easy to create simple data discs and audio CDs, for instance: just drag and drop your files onto the list area and you'll be burning the finished disc in a couple of clicks.

That's just the start, though. Burning Studio 2013 can also create data discs with customised, interactive multi-page menus, perfect if you'd like a more professional way to share and present the disc contents.

A built-in backup tool allows you to create backups which may be encrypted, compressed, and span several CDs, DVDs and Blu-rays.

And there are modules to create VCD or SVCD video projects; burn video DVDs or Blu-ray discs from prepared folders; create, browse or burn disc images (ISO, CUE/ BIN and Ashdisc formats are supported); copy discs, erase them, design and print disc covers, labels and booklets, and more.

The focus throughout is on ease of use, though, and so Ashampoo Burning Studio 2013 remains very straightforward, whatever you're doing. Most disc projects are created via the same simple interface, and for the most part all you have to do is drag and drop the necessary files. But experts will find more advanced options are only a click away, and if you need to then you can set ISO and UDF version, enable Joliet, make a disc bootable and more.

Note the download here will take you to the Downloadcrew Software Store where you can download Burning Studio 2013.
