Soft4Boost Update Checker  5.0.1.111
Quickly check your installed programs for available updates

Soft4Boost Update Checker is a lightweight tool which quickly checks your installed applications and lets you know if some of them have updates available.

The program is very simple. There's no component left running on your PC all the time, and no complex settings within the tool itself - all you have to do is launch it, and available updates will be displayed in a few seconds. If you'd like to take advantage of one, select it, click the "globe" and you'll be taken to the relevant home page. Otherwise, close Soft4Boost Update Checker and check back a week or two later.

How effective is this? Soft4Boost don't tell you which programs it supports, or even how many, which left us a little suspicious. But running it on a few test systems highlighted updates for Adobe AIR/ Flash/ Shockwave, FileZilla, Firefox, GIMP, IrfanView, Skype, SmartFTP, QuickTime, Macrium Reflect, VirtualBox and various Nero and Cyberlink programs: more than enough to be useful.

Verdict:

Soft4Boost Update Checker provides a quick and easy way to detect programs with available updates (but you'll still have to download and install them yourself)

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.
