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.

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.
