ZoneAlarm Extreme Security
Get antivirus, firewall, antispam, antiphishing, identity theft protection and more from a single powerful security suite

ZoneAlarm Extreme Security is, as you might expect from the "Extreme" tag, an unusually full-featured security suite.

It includes an excellent firewall, of course, which manages to control your applications without the hassle of endless alerts. The suite's strong on-demand and real-time antivirus protection is based on highly-rated Kaspersky technology, and the spam filter protects your Outlook, Outlook Express and Windows Mail inbox.

And browsing protection sees ZoneAlarm Extreme Security monitoring the sites you attempt to visit, and the files you download, warning you about any that appear to be dangerous.

But there's also much more. Like solid Parental Controls, based on Net Nanny; an online backup tool with 2GB of free server space; browser virtualisation, which keeps any malware away from your system; a Registry-cleaning PC Tuneup module, private browsing, keylogger jamming, and more.

Perhaps the best example of the extra power on offer here is the Identity Protection module. Like many other suites, it allows you to enter personal information - addresses, credit card details, phone numbers and so on - and then ensures they can't leave your PC without permission. But it also offers American users a free one year subscription to Identity Guard, which provides daily credit record monitoring, email alerts of any activity, and free phone assistance if this reveals anything suspect.

There's a price to pay for this, of course, and Extreme Security is the most expensive product in the ZoneAlarm range. If you don't need quite so much power then ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite drops Registry cleaning, virtual and private browsing, and keylogger jamming, and is $10 cheaper. And if you don't need the parental controls or spam filter then opting for ZoneAlarm Antivirus + Firewall will save you another $10. Find out more and compare the various editions at the ZoneAlarm site.

What's new in the 2015 edition?

- New: Advanced Real-Time Antivirus (Real-Time Cloud Protection)
- New: Threat Emulation
- New: Find My Laptop
- New: Anti-Keylogger
- New: Privacy Toolbar with Internet Explorer 11 support
- Updated: Antivirus engine
- Updated: UI minor adjustments
- Improved: Enhanced Browser Protection (Web Monitor)
- Improved: PC Tune-Up

Verdict:

While some of its modules aren't so great - the spam filter is weak, for instance - overall ZoneAlarm Extreme Security offers plenty of effective protection and is good value for money

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.
