Ashampoo Anti-Virus 2014
A fully-featured dual-engine powered antivirus tool

Ashampoo Anti-Virus is a full-featured antivirus tool which uses engines from Bitdefender and Emsisoft to keep your PC safe from harm.

There's no shortage of functionality here. Real-time protection detects and blocks malware as it arrives; behavioural monitoring uncovers even brand new threats, and browsing protection stops you accessing malicious websites. You can get involved and run scans whenever and wherever you like, but the program is also smart enough to handle most decisions on its own. And if you're running some full-screen application then the Ashampoo Anti-Virus Game Mode means you need never see any alerts at all.

You also get plenty of bonus features. File Wiper is a capable tool for securely wiping files, folders, drive free space and more; Startup Tuner displays your startup programs, IE plugins and more, and helps you remove any you don't need; ADS Scanner checks NTFS drives for suspect alternate data streams; LSP Viewer displays Winsock layers, though can't remove them; Internet Cleaner wipes your web histories in various browsers (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari); and Hosts File Checker works just as you'd expect, scanning your HOSTS file for the signs of malware, and restoring the default HOSTS file if necessary.

All of this is presented in a clean and straightforward interface. Large buttons give easy access to the main Ashampoo Anti-Virus features, and you can be launching a scan, or running one of the many bonus utilities in a couple of clicks.

Performance didn't seem exceptional, at least on our very first tests. Even the Quick Scan seemed to take a while, and there were a few false positives.

Still, these are early days, and it's no surprise that some tuning might be required. Any issues seem minimal, though, and on balance Ashampoo Anti-Virus 2014 seems to already be a very capable tool.

Verdict:

It'll require some time to see how Ashampoo Anti-Virus 2014 performs in the real world, but already there's plenty to like about the program. The Bitdefender and Emsisoft engines should offer capable protection, there are plenty of genuinely useful tools and utilities, and a straightforward interface ensures it's all very easy to use.

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.
