Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2012
Tired of slow, bloated antivirus packages? Then take a look at this

SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2012 is, according to Webroot, "the fastest and lightest virus and spyware protection you can buy".

How fast? The company says that after the initial scan, subsequent system scans typically take around two minutes. And when we tried the program it was even faster, with complete scans taking around 35 seconds. Of course these aren't full system scans - there's only time for SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2012 to be checking your running processes - but as long as its detection engine is good then that's still enough to keep you safe.

The package really is lightweight, too. Memory use peaked at around 50MB during scanning on our test PC, but when idle could be as little as 2MB. And while SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2012 needs its share of CPU time, this didn't interfere with other things: you'll probably be able to carry on with other things without even noticing that a scan is taking place.

What's more, as the program is cloud-based, checking your files against a huge malware database on Webroot's servers, it's always up-to-date.

And yet despite the program's lightweight nature, it still manages to cram in plenty of features. So you get real-time protection, on-demand and scheduled scanning, browsing protection, a sandbox, the ability to prevent malware from changing your settings, and more.

Note that you need to register at http://www.webroot.com/customerSupport/trialRegistration.php?trpd=WSAV&loc=USA to get a trial serial code.

Verdict:

It's perhaps a little expensive, but then by way of compensation Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2012 is also fast, lightweight and packed with features - and it's certainly good enough to justify checking out the trial

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.
