Comodo Cleaning Essentials 2.5
Add another layer of antivirus protection to your PC with this portable security package

Comodo Cleaning Essentials is a set of portable antivirus tools that will help you to detect and remove malware from an infected PC.

If you think your system has contracted something nasty, for instance, but your regular antivirus package hasn't noticed anything, then you can have Comodo Cleaning Essentials scan your PC and deliver a second opinion. The program can check your entire system, or just the areas you define, and provides some interesting configuration options that you won't always see elsewhere. (There's a setting to "restore any kernel hooks before the scan", for example, which might help you more easily detect rootkits and other stealthy malware.)

And a second tool, KillSwitch (an extension of the excellent Process Hacker), allows you to examine exactly what's running on your PC in very great detail. Integration with Comodo's whitelist helps to identify many of the safe processes on your system, which means you can quickly zoom in on the most likely potential threats. Then you can look at the modules a process has loaded, search its RAM, and monitor your services, open network connections, BHOs, LSPs and more.

Comodo Cleaning Essentials doesn't offer any real-time protection, so it's no substitute for a full antivirus package. The program will happily run alongside other security software, though, making it useful as a second layer of protection, or just an easy way to check your system for threats that your regular antivirus tool might have missed.

What's new in 2.5?

NEW: Full support of Windows 8 Release Preview.
FIXED: File signature is not recognized correctly in some cases.
IMPROVED: Enhanced white list for system files.
IMPROVED: Avoid false positive by enhanced trusted file verification.
IMPROVED: CCE GUI can now be maximized.
IMPROVED: Update virus signature before restart in full scan so that scan starts immediately after system starts up.

Verdict:

A valuable set of malware-hunting tools that make a worthwhile addition to your regular antivirus suite

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.
