ScreenBlur 1.3.0.25
A very customisable Windows desktop lock screen

ScreenBlur is a free tool which can temporarily lock and hide the Windows desktop.

Launch the program and it adds an icon to your system tray. Right-click this, select "Lock", and an "Access Denied" message is displayed. Type the password you chose at installation and the desktop will reappear.

ScreenBlur can also lock your screen via a customisable hotkey, or when your computer has been idle for a specified period of time.

While there are similar tools around, ScreenBlur stands out for its many configuration options. You can have your applications hidden or minimised while the screen is locked, for example. The program can mute your sound. There's an option to avoid locking "on idle" if you're watching a full screen movie. If your computer has been locked for a specified length of time then you can have it sleep, hibernate or shut down. And you're able to change the interface colours, the fonts, even set a custom lock screen image.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use and exceptionally configurable lock screen

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.
