Oxynger KeyShield 1.1.0
Protect your passwords from keyloggers

Oxynger KeyShield is a portable virtual keyboard for Windows 7/8 which uses a range of techniques to protect your details from keyloggers and other malware.

If you need to enter a password somewhere, for instance, then all you have to do is launch Oxynger KeyShield, and type your details. They're then sent directly to the application by what the authors call a "very secure communication channel", which keyloggers won't be able to intercept. It would take considerable testing and a very long time to decide the truth of that, but the program did manage to evade two commercial keyloggers we tried, which is a good start.

Some malware might record your mouse movements, too, and try to figure out the password from those. Oxynger KeyShield protects you from that danger by using a random keyboard layout each time.

Could malware capture the KeyShield window, as you click? No, or at least, not easily. We tried Alt+PrtSc and several screen grab programs, and none of these were able to capture anything. (The only way we could get an image for this page was to copy it from the Oxynger website.)

Surprisingly, the program can even protect you from "shoulder surfers", people who stand nearby and read your details as you enter them. In a click or two you're able to reduce the size of the keys, and change the mouse cursor to a near invisible black dot; factor in the random keyboard layout as well, and it's hard to imagine anyone figuring out what you're entering.

Verdict:

There are many ways malware might try to log your activities, and it's difficult to say how many of these Oxynger KeyShield might defeat. It did successfully bypass everything we tried, though, which is a great start. And the "shoulder surfing" protection could make the program worth downloading, all on its own.

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.
