iolo System Mechanic Free 14.0
Optimise, clean and repair your PC

iolo System Mechanic Free is a cut-down version of iolo's popular PC optimisation suite.

If you've ever used any of the PC speedup packages around then you'll already know what to expect here. So there's a Registry cleaner, for instance; a tool for locating and deleting junk files; a basic defrag module, Windows startup program checker, and so on.

This isn't just an identikit speedup suite, though - these tools are genuinely effective. When we pointed the program at a reasonably clean system and asked it to locate redundant files, for example, it uncovered 820MB; CCleaner could only locate 236MB.

There are also plenty of tools which aren't commonly available in this kind of suite. So there are modules to defragment your memory, back up and restore your Registry; locate and delete (or fix) broken shortcuts; securely erase confidential files; locate duplicate files; thoroughly uninstall applications; view system information; and take snapshots of your PC and display the difference between them, so for instance you can see the changes made to your PC by a program installation.

And just in case that sounds like too much work, System Mechanic also allows you to run several tools at once via its wizards. You might launch the PC Accelerator to run all its speedup functions, say, or use PC Cleanup to free up the maximum hard drive space. Or simply launching PC TotalCare will run all System Mechanic's functions with a click.

There's plenty on offer here, then, but of course the full version of System Mechanic has even more functionality: boot-time defragmentation, special software speedup options, an internet connection tweaker, a module to locate and install updated drivers, disaster recovery tools, the System Troubleshooter to fix common Windows problems, security tools, in-depth Windows startup optimisation, a Windows tweaking tool, and more. If that sounds more appealing then you can always download the System Mechanic trial as an alternative.

This is the new System Mechanic Free 14.0?

- Ultra Performance Mode unleashes raw, fast, uncompromised power for intense and exhaustive PC activities: gaming, creating music, video editing, programming and other processor intensive activities.
- Endurance Mode reduces battery consumption when the top priority is a long-lasting mobile session.

Verdict:

It's cut down a little, but iolo System Mechanic Free remains a powerful PC maintenance suite with more than enough functionality to make it stand out from the competition

Limited features in free version, not safe for the system causes system errors, etc.
Try IObit Advanced SystemCare, it is much better than this waste and offeres more for free.

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.
