Avast Browser Cleanup 9
View, disable and remove browser addons

Avast Browser Cleanup is a free portable tool which can list the addons for IE, Firefox and Chrome, highlight any it thinks are particularly poor, and allow you to disable or remove them.

Launch the program and it will check your addons for any which "have a poor reputation" (according to their users), or "engage in aggressive tactics" to manipulate your settings. If any are discovered then these will be displayed on an Summary screen, and you can remove them all with a click.

After that, you can click a browser tab to display any associated addons, along with their user ratings. You can obviously do this from within the browser itself, but avast! Browser Cleanup does by default exclude addons with a good rating from the list, which might make it easier to spot the more dubious extensions.

If you decide a particular addon is surplus to requirements then clicking "Disable" will disable it completely (there's no "Remove" option here, unfortunately).

And there's also a "Reset browser settings to default" option which will restore your home and search pages to their default value. The product's home page has more.

Verdict:

It's distinctly short on features and functionality, but avast! Browser Cleanup could be useful as a way to help novice users disable some of the worst browser addons

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.
