Anvi Smart Defender 2.3
Protect your PC from malware?

Anvi Smart Defender is a compact tool for detecting and removing malware.

The program offers three on-demand scan types; Quick, Full and Custom. They're all fast, but unfortunately they're not too accurate, and there are no further configuration options.

The free edition of Smart Defender provides some real-time protection with six "guards": "File", "Registry", "Startup Item", "Web", "Privacy" and "Download".

Unsurprisingly, the commercial edition has many more: "Adware", "eShopping", "USB", "Behaviour", "Remote Access", "Remote Execute" and "Anti Exploit". All the guards can be enabled or disabled separately, but again there are no configuration options.

Anvi Smart Defender doesn't stop at detection, though. An Anti Hacker module scans your system, reports on vulnerabilities and poorly configured settings, and offers to fix them. It's mostly very basic (check the Windows Update is enabled, Autoplay is turned off), and there are a few options we didn't recognise ("Check if critical account is normal"), but it may help security beginners.

Anvi Smart Defender 2.3 changes:
    1 Repairing and fixing bug in cloud scanning engine that might be stuck.
    2 Optimizing and improving white list working mechanism which will not activate Registry Guard if items are already in white list.
    3 When users tick "Always do this operation" in Registry Guard and allow the operation, the program will automatically add related items into white list.

Verdict:

Anvi Smart Defender is a lightweight antivirus tool which works well with other security packages. It looks good and is easy enough to use, but accuracy remains poor.

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.
