Verity Child Monitoring 1.14
Find out what your kids are doing on their PC

Verity Child Monitoring is a parental controls package which will help you find out more about (and take charge of) what your kids are doing on their computer.

Getting started with the program can be a little complicated. On our test PC, for instance, we were asked to set up port forwarding on our router before we could configure the tool. Help was on offer, but this could still be a stumbling block if you're a PC novice.

Get past that hurdle, though, and you'll find the program has a lot to offer. Like restricting the programs they can run, and the websites they're able to visit, for instance. As an example, Verity Child Monitoring automatically blocks access to Task Manager to make it more difficult to close the program down.

The program can also log just about everything that's happening on the system: the programs used (and for how long), the websites visited, and the text of online chats. Keystrokes and mouse clicks are monitored, and Verity even captures the screen at regular intervals so you can review what's happened later.

And if you'd rather your children weren't spending so much time on the PC then you can also limit their computer usage (which, of course, also means you'll have less logs to review later).

Please note, the program will by default install the Ask browser toolbar. If you don't want this, look out for the "Related Programs and Extras" screen at the end of the setup process and clear the "Ask Internet Browser Toolbar" box before you click "Finish".

Verdict:

Verity Child Monitoring can be tricky to set up, but once it's working you'll find the program offers plenty of monitoring options, certainly more than you'd expect for a free tool.

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.
