Microsoft Fix it Portable
Automatically fix a host of common Windows problems with this handy Microsoft tool

Microsoft Fix it Portable is a useful troubleshooting tool which enables you to solve many common PC issues with a click.

The problem-solving process starts by choosing the general area where you're having difficulties. Categories on offer here include "Connect to the Internet or networks", "Install or upgrade software or hardware" and "Fix performance, errors or crashes".

Select one of these and the program will display any related troubleshooters. So if you choose the "Use Desktop features" category, say, you'll find tools to fix problems with Aero, Windows search, broken shortcuts, Windows Media Player and library issues, and more.

And if you spot something that suits your needs, just click the troubleshooter's hyperlink and Fix it Portable will try to fix the problem.

The program only has a few troubleshooters on offer, so you're still better off visiting Microsoft's online Fix It Solution Centre, if you can.

If you sometimes need to fix PCs which don't have an internet connection, though (or the lack of connectivity is one of the issues you're trying to fix) then it'll be useful to have some local backup, and Fix it Portable offers more than enough options and solutions to justify adding it to your troubleshooting toolkit.

Please note, the file you'll download here is just the Fix It installer. This will download the actual Fix it portable tool - including a Windows PowerShell runtime, if you request it - which could take a while as it's around 40MB in size, before saving the necessary files to the location of your choice.

Verdict:

Easy to use and with lots of troubleshooters, Microsoft Fix it Portable is a simple way to solve many PC problems. If your target PC is connected to the internet, though, you'll still get better results by visiting Microsoft's online Solution Centre.

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.
