Norton Internet Security 2014
Symantec's very latest security suite is faster, even more reliable

Norton Internet Security 2014 is the very latest edition of Symantec's powerful and feature-packed security suite.

Effective antivirus technologies monitor the files you run, download and access, as well as monitoring program behaviour, aiming to detect and remove malware before it can do any damage.

An intelligent firewall watches your internet connections and blocks network attacks. And all on its own, too - you won't be hassled by complex alerts.

Browsing protection checks the links you click, preventing access to phishing and other malicious sites.

You also get a capable spam filter, a password manager/ form filler, network monitor, startup program manager, bootable repair disc, performance-related tools and more, as well as integration with various other Norton products: parental controls, mobile security, Norton Zone (a free cloud-based file sharing service), and others.

The most obvious change in the 2014 edition is the enhanced Norton Identity Safe, the suite's password manager. An improved form filler now supports drag and drop, you can search for logins directly from the toolbar, and the interface has been revamped in general. We're less sure about the new look - it seems more obtrusive than the old one, more complex - but there's also some useful new functionality here.

Elsewhere, there's improved behavioural detection, and if something gets through anyway, more reliable cleanup tools to help repair the damage.

Symantec is also claiming simpler installation and setup, although previous installs have been so easy already that we're not really sure how much they can be improved.

One area which has seen some worthwhile tweaks is performance, though, with Norton Internet Security 2014 recording a 15% faster boot time, while scan time RAM usage has fallen by 100MB.

What's new in v21.5?

- Single Purpose Extension Update for Google Chrome - For more details see announcement
- Fixed some invalid product key flows. 
- Updated Norton Vulnerability Protection [12.2]

Verdict:

There are few visible changes, but Norton Internet Security 2014's password manager is now more powerful, the accelerated startup time is worthwhile, and any improvement in detection and repair abilities works for us

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.
