Windows 7 Boot Updater
Customise Windows' startup animation with Windows 7 Boot Updater

There are a huge number of ways in which you can customise your copy of Windows, but areas such as the animated boot screen seem practically untouchable. If you are running Windows 7, Windows 7 Boot Updater enables you to customise the animated screen that is displayed when you start up your computer, or when you wake it from sleep or hibernation mode.

At its most basic the application can be used to change the black background colour that is used for the animation, but it is also possible to change the default text that appears on screen. You can change the size, position and background colour of these messages to anything of your choosing.

But the real fun comes when Windows 7 Boot Updater is used to completely customise the startup animation. Rather than requiring you to use complicated animation software, the boot screen is made up of a series of still images that can be created in any image editing application.

Full instructions about how to screen images of the correct size and format are included in the program, and in a few simple steps it is possible to customise your copy of Windows in a unique way. All of the files that are edited during the customisation process are backed up automatically so you can easily revert to the original settings when you want.

Verdict:

This may be beta software, but Windows 7 Boot Updater already looks like a polished piece of software that should grace the hard drive of any serious tweaker.

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.
