Mirekusoft Install Monitor 1.1.93.0
Fully uninstall applications, without leaving stray files or Registry keys behind

Mirekusoft Install Monitor watches the files added to your system by an application installation, allowing you cleanly remove the program later should you want to do so.

To try the program out, install it, then install some other application, and Install Monitor will automatically track the files, folders and Registry keys being added to your system. There are no extra dialogs, no lengthy snapshots taken, all this happens in the background (and in our case, without us even noticing).

You can see the results, though, by launching Install Monitor, selecting the newly-installed program and clicking the Contents button. This will display a tree of the various files, folders and Registry keys added by the program. Which actually might be useful in itself if you just want to know how a particular application has changed your PC.

If you want to fully remove that application, though, select it, click Content > Uninstall and Install Monitor will launch the regular uninstaller. Allow that to complete and watch as the list of files and Registry keys shrinks. And if there's anything left over, click "Clean up" to remove that, too, ensuring there's no junk left behind to clutter your hard drive.

In our tests this seemed to work very well, but as the "Clean up" dialog warns, "serious problems might occur" if the wrong items are removed. We wouldn't recommend you use this kind of tool unless you have a complete and recent system backup to hand.

Verdict:

An interesting and capable "clean uninstall" tool which seems very easy to use

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.
