Checksum Control Portable
Check the validity of your downloads with Checksum Control Portable

Viruses are a serious and ever-growing problem for anyone that uses the internet, and infected downloads are a common means of delivering viruses to unsuspecting users. One way to check whether the file you are downloading is what it claims to be is to make use of checksum values using a wizard led interface.

SFV and MD5 checksums are supported, and these are unique numbers that can be generated for any file that is available. Web sites will often published the checksum values for files they host so they users can check that the value is the same once the file has been downloaded - in this way it is possible to determine whether or not the file has been interfered with in any way.

Checksum Control Portable can be installed on your computer like any other app, but it can also be added to a USB drive like many other portable apps so you can easily transport it and use it on other computers. The easy to follow wizard interface make it very simple to both check and create checksums in just a few steps.

When creating a checksum, filenames can be automatically generated from the files you are working with, or you can opt to use your own naming scheme. Comments can be optionally added to the checksums you create, and the process of verifying files you have downloaded against their checksum values is equally simple.

Verdict:

This isn't a tool for everyone, but for anyone who is ultra-security conscious, it is a valuable utility to add to your USB drive

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.
