G Data Internet Security 2014

G Data Internet Security 2012 is capable security suite which isn't packed with extras, but delivers good protection where it really matters.

And so you don't get all of the goodies provided in some of the premium suites. There's no backup tool here, for instance. No password manager.

What you do get, though, is G Data's dual-engine antivirus technology, which regularly comes top of the list for malware detection rates in independent testing.

There's a very capable firewall, which won't hassle you with alerts, yet is also highly configurable if you need to customise your protection.

Built-in browsing protection prevents you from accessing many dangerous sites. A spam filter does a reasonable job of protecting your Inbox from junk, while parental controls help limit your family's access to the worst of the web.

New this time is what G Data calls its CloseGap technology, which the company says "provides fast, effective protection against computer malware, based on a balanced combination of reactive and proactive malware detection techniques".

Another addition is the AutostartManager, which helps optimise your startup programs to cut system boot time.

G Data's BankGuard technology has been improved, and now does an even better job of protecting your online banking and shopping transactions.

And all this is presented via a totally redesigned interface, making the program much easier to use.

Verdict:

While there are more powerful suites about, G Data Internet Security 2014 excels where it matters, and does a good job of detecting and removing both local and web-based threats

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.
