Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit BETA 0.10.0.1000
Detect and remove rootkits from your PC

Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit BETA is an early look at a new tool which aims to find and eliminate rootkits from your PC.

The program is very straightforward in operation. There's no installation, just unzip the download, follow the simple wizard and it'll walk you through the process of scanning your PC and (if necessary) cleaning up any malware.

Handily, you also get a tool which aims to fix the damage sometimes done by malware to your settings. If you've lost internet access, for instance, or Windows Update/ the Windows Firewall have stopped working then this may be able to help.(There are more instructions on the Malwarebytes site.)

The end result is a tool which is considerably more user-friendly than many other rootkit detectors. There's no technical jargon here, for instance. And while some of the competition push the technical limits to the extent that just running them can blue-screen some PCs, Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit ran on our system just like any other antivirus program.

This is a beta, though. It raised some false alarms during the detection process on our test PC, and if there are problems during cleanup then it could seriously harm your system.

If you're an experienced Windows user, then, maybe a Malwarebytes fan who wants to keep up with what they're doing, then by all means download this and take a look. But everyone else should stay away until the finished product is available.

Verdict:

A straightforward, easy-to-use rootkit detector. Keep in mind that it's a beta, though - only use if you're extremely confident that you can clean up after the program if it goes wrong

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.
