Avira Internet Security 2014
Protect your PC with Avira's latest security suite

Avira Internet Security 2014 is a comprehensive collection of tools which aims to provide everything to keep your PC safe from harm, both online and off.

You get a strong antivirus engine, for instance, which generally scores well with independent labs. The previous edition ranked 2nd out of 13 in AV-Comparatives March 2013 file detection test, for example, with a very creditable score of 99.6%.

The suite also includes Avira's Protection Cloud, a cloud-based technology which helps to detect and block even brand new, previously undiscovered threats.

The Browser Tracker Blocker prevents more than 600 networks from tracking your online activities.

The Website Safety Advisor adds icons to your search results (if they're carried out via the Avira toolbar), warning you of potentially dangerous sites before you click.

The program's parental controls have been extended via Avira Social Network Protection, which helps protect your kids on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and others.

And an Android tool delivers on all the security basics (privacy protection, call/ SMS blocking, lost phone recovery and more).

What you don't get any more is a firewall. Avira Internet Security 2014 now just provides an interface to manage the Windows firewall, instead. Notably, this only works with Windows 7 or later, so XP and Vista users will have to sort out a new solution for themselves.

There's a distinct shortage of new features, too. The suite can now scan network shares, but otherwise it looks and feels much as it always did.

Still, there's plenty of power here, and the excellent antivirus engine will do a good job of keeping you safe from harm.

Please note, by default the program will install the Avira SearchFree Toolbar and adjust your browser search settings. If you don't want this then be sure to choose the Custom installation option and clear the relevant checkboxes.

Verdict:

Dropping the firewall may cause problems for some, but otherwise Avira Internet Security 2014 does a good job of protecting your PC from harm

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.
