QuickSetDNS 1.01
Quickly change the DNS servers for your internet connection

QuickSetDNS is a compact and portable tool which makes it easy to change the DNS server for any of your network adapters.

Unlike some similar tools, QuickSetDNS only lists a single alternative to your default settings: Google's Public DNS. But this isn't necessarily a big deal, as it's simple enough to add as many other alternatives as you like. For Comodo Secure DNS, say, you'd click File > DNS, type Comodo in the "Name" box, 8.26.56.26,8.20.247.20 in the "IP Addresses" box, click OK, and you're done.

Changing the DNS server itself is simple enough, just a matter of choosing your preferred network adapter, selecting a new server and clicking File > Set Active DNS (or pressing F2). Or, if you need to restore your default settings later, set your system to "Automatic DNS" instead.

Alternatively, if you're a network expert then you can use the program to set your DNS servers from the command line, like QuickSetDNS.exe /SetDNS "8.8.8.8,8.8.4.4" "{F41A4233-02DA-42D6-A97B-A2D12F9FE0CD}"

Version 1.01:
 ◦Added 'Router DNS' item, which allows you to choose the internal DNS server of your router.

Verdict:

QuickSetDNS is a little basic, with just one alternative DNS server, no explicit DNS restore option, no way to flush your DNS cache. If you know what you're doing, though, it's easy enough to use, and a simple way to change your DNS servers.

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.
