SoftPerfect Wifi Guard 1.0.4
Detect intruders on your wireless network

SoftPerfect Wifi Guard is a simple tool which makes it easy to detect intruders on your local network.

The program requires no installation (the Windows build, anyway) - just run it, and SoftPerfect Wifi Guard will quickly scan your network and display any devices it finds. Anything that's clearly a part of the infrastructure, like the PC you're working on or your router will be flagged as green, but everything else will be marked as red: a potential intruder.

If you recognise a device as legitimate - a network storage device, say, or another system on your network - then right-click it, select Properties, check "I know this computer or device" and it'll be removed from the danger list. Which, initially at list, will probably dwindle to nothing at all.

SoftPerfect Wifi Guard will scan your system every half hour, though, and if anything new and unknown has connected in the meantime then you'll be informed via a suitable pop-up alert.

Plainly this is no substitute for proper wireless network security, such as using the highest levels of encryption supported by all your network devices.

SoftPerfect Wifi Guard does provide a simple extra layer of protection, though. It's also lightweight and entirely free (no adware concerns), so if you're interested then you can try the program without suffering any hassles, penalties or problems.

What's new in 1.0.4?

- Fixed a crash on Windows with a right-to-left system language.
- Added Windows high DPI awareness for high-resolution displays.
- Added e-mail notifications sent when unknown devices are found.

Verdict:

It's no substitute for real network security, but SoftPerfect Wifi Guard does provide a simple extra layer which might detect intruders

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.
