PowerTool 1.6
A powerful low-level Task Manager alternative

PowerTool is a capable set of utilities for helping you explore exactly what's running on your PC, and your overall system configuration. It's oriented towards PC experts who would like to use it for manually detecting, analysing and removing malware, but the program also has many other PC analysis and troubleshooting applications.

At its simplest, you can use PowerTool just to view particular areas of your system. There's a tab which lists your running processes, for instance. Others cover your Windows services, startup programs, scheduled tasks, loaded modules, currently active network connections, and more.

Elsewhere, a Registry tab acts as a mini-REGEDIT, while a Files tab is a very simple version of Explorer - very useful if the Windows equivalents no longer work for some reason. And a third tab not only displays your HOSTS file, it allows you to edit it as well.

Right-click various items in these listings, though, and you'll also find some far more advanced options. So you can force the termination of a program and delete it immediately afterwards, for instance - perfect when you're tackling malware. You're able to similarly stop and delete a service. And there's an option to search for process names online.

If you need more, there's plenty of extremely low-level information to help experts detect malware: Ring 0 hooks, Ring 3 hooks, all kinds of in-depth kernel details, even a disassembler to show you what's happening at a particular entry point.

And if you're a Windows expert then there's even an option to modify the protection of a particular memory block, perhaps so that you can manually alter it: hugely risky, but also very handy if you know what you're doing.

PowerTool x64 V1.6

  Add:
    1.Add remove filter driver.
    2.Add delete directory(Recursively delete).
    3.Add rename file.
 
 Modify:
    1. Enhanced force delete functions(can delete the files protected by antivirus software)
    2. Fix bug of view process API hook.
    3. Restore the [online update] function.

Verdict:

PowerTool is an excellent program for analysing your PC in great deal. It's aimed at experts, but if you're happy using Task Manager, say, then you'll find at least some of it useful

The program is in Chinese

Posted by: James Hyde, 21 June 2013 18:50

This looks like an interesting program, and it got a good review. However, this packed version is in Simplified Chinese. Is there an English one? Cheers

Thanks James. The reviewer pointed to the directory of files, which we then updated to point to the individual file on our server. We've now updated this with the correct file. Try downloading now.

Your download link is wrong

Check the download link please... It sends you to a page where the product described above doesn't even appear and when you click on Epoolsoft you go to a page in Chinese that i didn't even tried to translate with Google... :(

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.
