PhrozenSoft VirusTotal Uploader 3.1
Upload suspect files from your desktop for checking by VirusTotal

PhrozenSoft VirusTotal Uploader is a small tool which can upload multiple files to VirusTotal.com, where they'll be checked for malware by more than 40 leading antivirus engines.

At its simplest, you can just select one or more files in Explorer, drag and drop then onto VirusTotal Uploader (or a new widget you can leave on your desktop), and they'll be uploaded for you. A straightforward interface keeps you informed on the upload process, and results are displayed as they arrive.

There are plenty of other options, though. You can view your running processes, startup programs (now more thoroughly listed) or services, for instance, and submit anything which look suspicious. VirusTotal Uploader can run a check on anything with an open network connection, too. And there's even a "Download and Scan" tool; give the program your URL and it'll download the file for you, as well as delivering its VirusTotal scan results.

The download process may take quite some time, of course, so it was annoying that previous versions of VirusTotal Uploader only allowed you to grab one file at a time. But version 3.0 has fixed that, with the program happily downloading multiple files, and even importing URLs from a file if these are downloads you need to run regularly.

Other Version 3.0 changes include:

Desktop widget design is now optimized.
The Download and Scan now supports multi-file download.
The Download and Scan now supports import URL from file (New line separator).
New Settings panel added for Download and Scan
Now the program doesn’t require administrative privilege to work. You can elevate at any time to have a better scope of your system.
Startup list now supports Userinit startup method listing.
Startup list now supports disabled entries which still exist in the system.

Verdict:

PhrozenSoft VirusTotal Uploader is an easy way to check suspect files for malware, with a host of handy bonus tools also included.

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.
