Advanced System Tweaker
Optimise and maintain your PC with this extensible tweaking tool

Advanced System Tweaker is a Windows tweaking tool with a couple of unusual extras.

At first glance the program doesn't look too impressive. It only comes with 37 Windows tweaks, for instance, covering the usual areas: memory optimisations, interface tweaks, networking improvements, Explorer speedups and so on.

And an inflexible interface means they're not too well presented. Most tweak descriptions are too long to view in their pane, for instance. You can't resize this or maximise the window, either, so have to scroll horizontally to read them.

But there are good points, too. Choose an option like "Memory Tweaks", say, and the program will explain that it can speed up your PC by telling Windows to keep more items in memory. Sounds good, but if you're an expert Windows user you'll still want more information.

And you can get it, too, just by clicking the Detailed Information bar, which (amongst other data) shows you exactly which Registry settings the tweak will apply. It's the same for every tweak here: the program is completely transparent about what it's doing.

But that's not all. Advanced System Tweaker also supports "Add Ons", which means you can extend its abilities by downloading more tweaks online (well, eventually, there's only one available as we write), or creating new ones of your own. So in just a few minutes you can extend the program with many of your own favourite Windows tweaks, which could make it far more useful.

Build 2.0.0 is a major new release with these changes:

- Major program change. In the previous versions you could only run 1 tweak at a time. Now you can select the tweaks you want first and then apply them all at once.
- Multiple code changes and some minor bug fixes.
- Added frame containers and lines to the add on creator for tweaks.

Verdict:

Advanced System Tweaker includes only a few Windows tweaks right now, and its interface isn't the best. The ability to customise it with your own tweaks could be very useful, though, so if you're an expert Windows user then the program may be worth checking out.

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.
