Panda Cloud Antivirus FREE 3.0.1
A fast and effective antivirus tool which takes the pressure off your computer

Panda Cloud Antivirus FREE is a popular antivirus tool, fast and ultra-lightweight, but still with all the functionality you'd expect from this kind of application (if not more).

Real-time antivirus and antispyware protection blocks known threats; behavioural monitoring detects even the very latest malware; URL monitoring prevents you accessing dangerous websites, and a Process Monitor highlights programs with open network connections, and allows you to block them individually.

Better still, your files are analysed in the cloud, which means the program always has access to the very latest virus signatures (no bulky updates to download), while using the absolute minimum of system resources.

This release comes with a brand new interface, which - surprise, surprise - has a Windows 8 look. But while it's not exactly original, the program looks good and is easy to use, with all the main functions just a click or two away. Click "Edit" and you can customise this "Start Screen", too.

Panda Cloud Antivirus FREE has also gained two major features which were previously reserved for the commercial Pro edition. It can schedule scans to run unattended, whenever you like. And automatic USB vaccination keeps you safe from autorun viruses.

A new Rescue Kit can create a bootable USB drive, or run Panda's Cloud Cleaner to detect and remove even the most stubborn viruses.

And there are assorted smaller tweaks everywhere you look, such as the option to automatically shut down your PC once a scan has completed.

Verdict:

A good choice for those looking for a simple, lightweight and - above all - free anti-virus combo.

Good detection rate Extremely lightweight

I decided to try this one (the Free version) after having constant problems with Avast 8 not initializing the GUI on boot-up (or showing non-existent shield errors) and conflicting with Thunderbird (you can't send mail because of an error of Avast mail shield) and i must say that i'm surprised with Panda's efficiency and amazing light footprint on your system (Cpu & Ram) AVcomparatives.org reports give it a 97.7% detection rate which is right up with some major names. Also you don't have to worry about daily updates or anything else. Due to it's cloud nature, it's constantly updated and also won't give you false positives! It also scans your system in the background but you won't notice any lags If you want more in-depth scans you can complement Panda with the several free AV scan-only like Kaspersky, Emsisoft or McAfee and run one of those once a week like i do... you also have the excellent MalwareBytes Anti-Malware Free to scan for malware and spyware so you don't need to spend money to be protected!

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.
