Bitdefender Rootkit Remover 1.0 (32-bit)
A fast, free and portable rootkit remover

Bitdefender Rootkit Remover is a quick and easy tool for dealing with known rootkits.

The company say it can currently remove Mebroot, all TDL families (TDL/SST/Pihar), Mayachok, Mybios, Plite, XPaj, Whistler, Alipop, Cpd, Fengd, Fips, Guntior, MBR Locker, Mebratix, Niwa, Ponreb, Ramnit, Stoned, Yoddos, Yurn, Zegost and Necurs.

There's no need to install anything, and so no worries about conflicts with other security tools. Just download the program, click "Start Scan", and it should take care of everything else.

What you will notice, if you're not infected by anything, is that scan times can be extremely fast - perhaps just a second or two. And that's because Rootkit Remover works with known threats only, so there's no need to examine every file on your system - it already knows exactly where to look.

Of course this also means that Rootkit Remover is no substitute for a full antivirus engine, something which might be able to prevent your system from being infected in the first place. But if you think you may have a rootkit and your current security package can't help, then it may be a good idea to give Bitdefender Rootkit Remover a try.

Verdict:

It has its limitations, but if you think your system is infected by malware and your current antivirus tool can't help then Bitdefender Rootkit Remover may be worth a try

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
