avast's premier security suite is more powerful than ever

Avast! Premier 2015 is the company's premium security suite, and includes an antivirus engine, firewall, browsing protection and browser cleanup tool.

The suite builds on Avast Internet Security with an automated software update tool, which can not only alert you to new updates, but download and install them as well.

Another big extra is a military-grade data shredder, which can wipe important files, documents and other personal data, and ensure there's no chance they can be recovered.

AccessAnywhere is the other premium feature, and allows you to access your PC over the internet.

Installation is simple and straightforward. Compatibility seems good, too, with the package running happily alongside Norton Internet Security on our test PC.

The program interface is clean and very easy to use. Just click "Smart Scan" and the suite immediately runs a quick check for malware. But it now also scans for missing software updates, runs a new Home Security Network Check (wifi status, weak router passwords etc), and even looks for junk files and poorly configured Windows settings.

If you're in a hurry then you can click "Resolve all" and leave the program to sort out the details.

But if you need more control then Avast! Premier 2015 has plenty to offer. For example, the antivirus engine can check individual files, folders, removable media, commonly infected areas of your PC or the entire system. If that's not enough, you're able to create your own custom scan type by tweaking 30+ settings. And this can be scheduled to run at boot time, daily, weekly, monthly - whenever you like.

The 2015 edition adds SecureDNS to protect you from DNS hijacking, including wifi hotspots and unsecured networks in general.

New support for scanning TLS/SSL protected traffic will detect threats even on HTTPS connections.

Avast DeepScreen now uses hardware virtualisation to run processes in standalone virtual machines, completely isolated from the rest of your system, improving security and detection (you'll need hardware virtualisation to be supported and enabled, of course).

Help has moved completely online, where it's both more complete and more up-to-date.

Verdict:

Avast Premier 2015 is a versatile, easy-to-use and configurable security suite. Avast Internet Security 2015 is almost as capable, security-wise, though - it's just missing the automated software updating, data shredder and remote access modules - and could be a better choice for many users.

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.
