RealVNC Free 5.2.1
Access your PC from almost any internet-enabled device, anywhere in the world

RealVNC is a remote access tool that allows you to securely access and control your PC over the internet.

There are plenty of free ways to do this - including a RealVNC Free Edition - but the Personal Edition includes many additional features that you may think are worth the purchase price.

One-Port HTTP & VNC delivers easier setup, for instance, by allowing Java and VNC sessions to run through a single TCP port.

File transfer is a particularly valuable extra. One major reason for logging in to your home PC in the first place is that you need access to some important file, and RealVNC Personal Edition allows this without having to figure out some additional workaround.

There's also printing: in just a few clicks you can access a document on your home PC, and send it to a local printer for a quick copy.

Enhanced security features include VNC server authentication, with 2048-bit RSA keys used to verify your identity, and up to 256-bit AES encryption for each VNC session.

And if you need to access multiple PCs remotely then you'll appreciate the integrated VNC address book , which stores the shortcuts for all your VNC servers in one convenient location.

Note that you need a license code for the Free Edition, which you can obtain from http://www.realvnc.com/purchase/activate/

What's new in 5.2.1?

- FIXED: VNC Viewer should now start correctly in all circumstances.
- FIXED: Active Directory users and groups in different domains can now be registered with VNC Server using the Users & Permissions page of the Options dialog box.
- FIXED: The Minimize and Maximize buttons on the VNC Viewer shortcut (F8) menu now work correctly.
- FIXED: The VNC Server status icon should now appear when you log in to the root user account on a host computer.
- FIXED: Second and subsequent media keys (such as Volume Up or Mute) are now sent to VNC Server, and the equivalent physical keys on the keyboard attached to the host computer are no longer disabled.

Verdict:

A powerful remote access tool with many time-saving features

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.
