OPSWAT Security Score
How secure is your PC? Here's an easy way to find out

OPSWAT Security Score is a simple tool which can quickly scan your PC, then provides a score to show how secure it is (or isn't), and offers some advice on how you can further improve your system security.

Launch the program, and after a speedy scanning process (around 9 seconds on our test PC), the program will deliver a security score for your PC based on 7 key areas: Antivirus, Antiphishing, Backup, Patch Management, Hard Disk Encryption, Firewall and File Sharing.

Our test PC scored 88/100, for instance: not bad. But if you'd like to know how to improve things still further, then clicking an area where you haven't scored full marks will offer some advice.

We only scored 3/5 for "Public File Sharing", for example: why? A click told us that OPSWAT Security Score had detected a uTorrent installation, and the program was recommending we remove this. (Although whether you do so is your call, of course.)

And we scored a miserable 0/10 for "Hard Drive Encryption", as our system didn't have BitLocker Drive Encryption enabled.

OPSWAT Security Score isn't doing anything too special or smart, and experienced users will probably find the program doesn't tell them anything they don't know already. It could still be very useful for checking other people's systems, though - making sure that a laptop used by your kids is properly configured, for instance - and that's probably enough to justify the download.

Verdict:

While its advice is fairly basic, OPSWAT Security Score does provide a quick and easy way to check a PC for potential security holes

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.
