Weeny Free Key Recovery 1.2
Quickly reveal Windows, Office and other product keys

Weeny Free Key Recovery will quickly detect and display your product keys for Windows, Office and a few other product keys (Visual Studio, SQL Server, Photoshop, AutoCAD, Battlefield, Call of Duty and so on).

It's not the longest of lists, and we're unsure how up-to-date the program's detection might be. The website only mentions Office 2003 and 2007, for instance, although it also worked just fine with our copy of Office 2010.

What's perhaps a little more interesting, though, is an option called "Scan Plus". Just click this button and the program will try more generic techniques to look for and recover product keys from any of your installed applications.

Does this work? Not consistently. Our test PC's report contained plenty of uninformative entries, including the following.

LinuxLive Advanced
skip_keyboard_detection = no

Apple Computer, Inc. QuickTime
ProResDecoderVersion = 2.0.0.3

WinMTR
License = GPL - GNU Public License

In amongst the nonsense, though, there were also quite a few real keys, for Macrium Reflect, VMware Workstation, Nero Platinum, Cyberlink PowerProducer and more.

This plainly isn't a substitute for using a program which offers true native support for finding these product keys, and can display them without all the extra junk. It's enough to move Weeny Free Key Recovery ahead of the more basic competition, though, and we'd recommend you give it a try.

Please note, though, the program will try to install a system addon and adjust your browser settings during setup. Pay close attention to what the installer is telling you, and be sure to click "Decline" if you're not interested.

Verdict:

The program only natively supports a few product keys, but its "Scan Plus" option extends this considerably. There's still no guarantee of great results, however it's certainly worth a try.

BEWARE : FULL of extra addons, Sweetlips IM software etc. Adds bits to IE and Firefox. Difficult to get rid of all the crap.

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.
