Avira PC Cleaner 1.0.0.106
Check a PC for malware with this stand-alone scanner

Avira PC Cleaner is a simple tool which can scan your PC, detecting and removing any malware.

The program doesn't require installation and you should be able to run it on just about any PC without conflicting with existing security software.

The initial release was only available in the German language - even the licence - which was something of a problem elsewhere. Fortunately there's now also an English language version.

You don't have to spend much time reading, though, as Avira PC Cleaner runs almost entirely automatically. There are no menus, no complex settings or dialog boxes: just click Scan and wait.

If no threats are uncovered then the program lets you know, displaying a reassuring green tick.

And if there are problems, you're able to remove them all with a click. You won't even see information on what's been detected unless you click the "Details" button; this really is an antivirus tool which even total novices can use.

Verdict:

A capable antivirus scanner which doesn't require installation. It asks to download up to 100MB of database files every times it runs, but the program is speedy overall and exceptionally easy to use.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
