Norman Malware Cleaner 2.08.08
Find and eliminate any viruses on your PC with this handy portable tool

Norman Malware Cleaner is an interesting portable antivirus tool which will scan your PC, detecting and removing any malware that it uncovers.

The program is very easy to use. Just download and launch it (patience may be required, it's a 275MB file), click the Start button and it'll immediately run a Quick Scan, checking your Registry and running processes for any sign of threats. This took only 75 seconds on our test PC, so you won't have long to wait, and anything Malware Cleaner finds will be immediately quarantined to keep you safe. (If this turns out to be a mistake then you can restore it from the Quarantine tab.)

Need a more thorough check? There's also the option to scan the most common file types for malware, every file on your system, or just a particular folder.

And clicking the Options tab reveals some useful settings. Check "Enable rootkit cleaning" and the tool will attempt to remove any rootkits it finds, for instance, while clearing "Enable archive unpacking" may greatly cut the time required to run full scans.

You don't get any real-time protection here, and it's not possible to schedule scans, so Norman Malware Cleaner is no substitute for a full antivirus package. If you think you might be infected by something and your regular security software can't help, though, then the program could be very useful: you should be able to run Malware Cleaner on any alongside other antivirus programs without conflicts, and it'll quickly give your system a security health check.

Verdict:

No antivirus program detects 100% of the threats out there, so every PC owner needs one or two additional lines of defence. Malware Cleaner is bulkier than many similar tools, but it's more powerful, too, and well worth adding to your security toolkit

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.
