Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2014 (v17.28)
This powerful antivirus package adds even more features

Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2014 is the latest edition of Bitdefender's capable antivirus engine.

As before, the core antivirus protection is just the start. You also get warnings of dangerous sites in your search engine results; strong protection for online banking and e-shopping sites; a social networking filter which traps dangerous links in your Facebook and Twitter feeds; a USB drive immuniser, identity theft and privacy protection, and more.

New features this time start with what Bitdefender are calling their Photon technology, which they claim is "an innovative antivirus technology that accelerates scanning speed by gradually adapting to your PC". We're not yet sure how much extra performance this might offer, but any extra speed gains are fine by us.

Perhaps the most significant practical addition to Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2014 is the Wallet, a capable password manager which manages both your website and application logons.

And a weekly Security Report sums up what's happened in the past seven days, highlights anything you need to do, tells you about unused modules, and more.

What hasn't really changed is the interface, which looks more or less as it did in last year's edition. And that's just fine by us, because for the most part it works well and is very easy to use.

What's new in build 17.28?

- new Firewall drivers
- improved Anti-Theft lock mechanism
- performance update for Safebox
- added new detection for latest versions of Mozilla Firefox in Vulnerability scanner
- other improvements

Verdict:

There's nothing revolutionary here, but Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2014 successfully builds on its previous incarnation, offering better performance and a useful password manager. Give it a try.

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.
