Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10
Quickly disinfect virus-ridden PCs

Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 is a free bootable environment that will detect and remove malware from a badly infected PC.

The system comes as an ISO image. Burn this to a DVD and you should be able to boot your PC from it. If your system is already infected with malware then this makes it far more likely that you'll be able to remove it successfully, as the malware won't be running and so cannot apply any tricks to hide from the scan, or prevent itself from being deleted.

Of course the problem with this approach is that a DVD will always start with the same virus database. Fortunately Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 will detect and recognise any network connection, so if you're connected to a router then it's able to go online and download the latest virus definitions.

After that the system works much like any other antivirus tool. Click the Objects Scan tab, choose to scan your PC, and Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 will crawl over your hard drive looking for malware and removing anything it finds.

Please note, if you'd prefer to install Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 to a USB flash drive, rather than a DVD, then that may possible. With a little work, at least. Check this Kaspersky support page for the instructions you need.

Verdict:

Every PC owner needs a disk or two like this, just in case their regular antivirus tool is caught out by a brand new threat. Go download it immediately

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.
