PC Tools Performance Toolkit 2
PC Performance Toolkit offers quick and easy optimisation and maintenance of your PC

It’s amazing how quickly your PC can start to behave sluggishly as detritus piles up. PC Performance Toolkit contains all the tools you need to quickly clear out various parts of your system, plus reorganise files and even the Windows Registry itself to reclaim some of that lost performance.

The program is split into three broad sections: optimise, maintain and recover. The Optimise section is where you regain lost performance through Registry cleaning and defragmenting, file cleaning and shredding (for those with sensitive data), Services tuneup and a one-click optimisation that performs various tweaks for you.

Select Maintain to keep your PC in good running order: from here you can check your hard drive’s health, plus defragment your drive. You can also manage your startup entries from here – you might be surprised what’s loading with Windows; disabling unwanted programs not only speeds up your startup times, but also frees up valuable memory, resulting in better performance.

Finally, use Recover to attempt to restore files you’ve recently deleted by mistake, plus undo changes made by the program that didn’t work out (Registry cleaning can sometimes create problems, not fix them).

Everything is easily accessible from a user-friendly interface, and it won’t take you long to recover that performance you thought had been lost forever. Experienced users will probably already have access to free versions of these tools, but if you want a simple, no-nonsense one-stop shop for quickly optimising your PC.

Verdict:

There’s nothing here that can’t be found elsewhere for free, but it wraps up a selection of useful tools in a user-friendly interface.

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.
