COMODO PC TuneUp 1.0
Boost your PC's performance with this basic cleanup suite

COMODO PC TuneUp offers a collection of tools which will apply various techniques to try and enhance your PC's performance.

If you've ever used another PC speedup suite then this will all seem very familiar. You'll set the program scanning; it'll check for Registry errors, unnecessary startup programs, junk files and so on; a report details the results, and you can clean your system with a click (once you pay, anyway - the trial version shows you the issues but won't fix anything). There's nothing exactly original here.

And, unfortunately, the program doesn't make up for this by the quality of its cleaning, either. PC TuneUp found far less junk files on our test system than CCleaner (71 vs 701MB). It couldn't make a single suggestion on how to improve our boot time. And the only module which did look interesting - "Events", which told us there were "14 Windows critical events found" - is poorly presented as it lists various events but offers no indication as to what any of them means (you actually have to head off to the "Expert Help" section for clues).

COMODO PC TuneUp does offer a few bonus tools - a duplicate file finder, a Registry Defragger, and a module to forcibly delete locked files - but they also have their problems. The Duplicate Finder, for instance, is very slow, and includes executable files in its search, not a good idea from a safety point of view.

And although the suite will also scan your PC for malware, even this can't save the program, because it's very much about providing an extra layer of security and you'll still need a separate antivirus tool.

COMODO PC TuneUp isn't exactly expensive, then, at $9.95 a year. But it's still not that great a deal, and most people will be significantly better off by using the best freeware competition, instead.

Verdict:

Short on features and lacking in power, COMODO PC TuneUp needs considerable work before it'll be ready to compete in the PC optimisation world

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.
