360 Internet Security 2013 (32-bit)
Block malware with China's favourite antivirus tool

360 Internet Security 2013 is a free antivirus application (not a suite, despite the name) from the Chinese company Qihu 360 Software.

The program provides a good range of features, with on demand scanning, real-time protection, antiphishing and privacy protection modules. All of this is supported by three antivirus engines. Qihu provide two - a "360 checksum based cloud" and "machine learning QVM" engines - and, notably, you also get the BitDefender engine. The end result isn't bad at all for a free antivirus package, with AV-Test recently ranking the program as broadly equivalent to the protection of Avast, Avira and AVG's engines.

In practical terms, the program got off to a bad start with us, claiming that there "wasn't enough free hard drive space" to install (there was more than 2.5TB).

We switched to another drive and the installation proceeded without problems. You're not forced to remove "incompatible" products, and there's no need to reboot: just wait and in a moment or two 360 Internet Security 2013's attractive and straightforward interface will pop up.

We tried some scans, and they were a little slower than we might normally expect. Our test samples were all detected, but the program also seemed prone to generating false alarms. It seems the developers perhaps realise this, as detected threats aren't automatically removed, and you can click a "later" button to postpone any action.

If you're happy with this, though, there's nothing else to do here: just close the program window, and 360 Internet Security 2013 carries on running in the background, doing a generally good job of protecting your PC from harm.
 

Verdict:

360 Internet Security 2013 looks good, is easy to use, and provides antivirus protection which is comparable to or better than several of its big-name free competitors

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.
