Advanced SystemCare 7.4
A feature-packed suite of PC maintenance tools

Advanced SystemCare Free 7 is the latest edition of IObit's feature-packed PC maintenance suite.

Just as with many similar packages, you get tools to control your startup programs, defragment your hard drive, manage running processes, find and remove duplicate files and tweak essential Windows settings. And these work just fine - but they're only the start.

The suite can also detect and remove malware; undelete files; optimise your PC for better gaming performance;  securely delete confidential documents, restore the Start menu to Windows 8, and more.

New features this time include the integration of IObit's Driver Booster, which locates missing driver updates.

The Program Deactivator disables startup entries and scheduled tasks for programs you're not using, to free up system resources.

New Surfing Protection technology "supports real-time database update and parent control for safer surfing", IObit says.

The Registry and Vulnerability fix modules, Windows 8 Start menu, Disk Explorer, Junk Files Cleaner and other tools have been enhanced and improved.

If that's still not enough, there's always ManageMyMobile, which helps you clean, optimise and back up your Android device.

All this is presented in what IObit describes as a Metro-style interface, optimised for "easier and smoother use". (It's not that Metro-like, really, but we don't mind: it's simple to find and access the tools you need, and that's what matters.)

This isn't bad at all for a free suite, but paying for Advanced SystemCare PRO will get you even more tools. Registry Cleaner detects and removes broken Registry values; Disk Cleaner frees up valuable hard drive space; Smart RAM tries to free up memory; Internet Booster optimises your browser settings to improve performance, and Win Fix helps you to resolve common system problems.

What's new in 7.4?

+ System Optimization - More stable and securer, and fully support optimization for Windows 8.1 latest version.
+ Privacy Sweep - Added cleaning for iTunes, Microsoft One Drive, Real VNC 5, Tag & Rename, Tango, 3D Pinball Ultimate Demo, avg internet security, bing desktop 6.0 and blio.
+ Privacy Sweep - Enhanced the cleaning for Winpatrol 31, Adobe Falsh Player 14.0, Thunderbird 31.0, Adobe Air 14.0.
+ Uninstaller 3.3 - Boosted launching speed, enhanced Forced Uninstall, and improved File Shredder.
+ AutoCare - Improved AutoCare to provide safer and smarter auto care service (PRO Only).
+ Latest Browser - Fully supported Chrome 36, Firefox 31, and Opera 23.
+ Language Optimization - Optimized a few language strings to clear up confusion.
+ User Interface - Minor UI improvements.
+ Minor Improvements - Fixed General Bugs.

Verdict:

Its tools are of variable quality - and you can get quite a few of them for free - but IObit Advanced SystemCare Free still has plenty of useful functionality. If you don't have the time or knowledge to build a custom PC maintenance suite of your own then it's certainly worth a look.

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.
