Anvi Smart Defender
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.

Version 2.4
     1 Optimized scanning engine to improve its stability.
     2 Fixed some bugs

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.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
