USSU Unlimited 2.0.5.6
Easily manage and update standard Windows programs

USSU Unlimited is an open source tool which can help you to install standard programs on a PC, then detect and download updates as they appear.

The program can manage 45 common applications. There are standard runtimes (Flash, Java, Adobe AIR), browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari), assorted security tools (Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, Avast, Avira, AVG), and plenty of desktop essentials (Adobe Reader, VLC Media Player, Google Earth, Paint.NET and more).

When you first launch USSU Unlimited, it displays the status of all these applications across various tabs. You'll be able to see whether a program is installed and up-to-date, installed but missing a patch, or not yet installed at all. If you'd like to enable management for a particular application then it's just a matter of clicking the "On" button, while clicking "Start" will download and install whatever you've selected.

The program doesn't always quite work as it should. We had installed Flash and 7-Zip on our test PC, for instance, but USSU Unlimited didn't spot that and claimed they were "not installed". This isn't a fatal problem - if an application isn't detected properly then you can just continue to manage it manually - but it's still a small concern.

For the most part, though, USSU Unlimited works very well, and if you need to manage several PCs then it could save you a lot of time.

Verdict:

It has one or two technical issues, but USSU Unlimited is still an above-average application updater, quickly checking for, downloading and installing a host of popular applications

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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.
