Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 Technical Preview
Peek ahead to Kaspersky's next antivirus engine

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 Technical Preview is a first look at Kaspersky's 2015 antivirus tool.

Installation follows the usual Kaspersky rules. You're warned about incompatible applications, but can choose to install anyway; the program asks you for an activation code; choose the "trial" option instead and Kaspersky Anti-Virus activates automatically, giving you a 91 day licence.

Kaspersky has yet to detail any new features, as we write, but the most obvious change so far is the simplified, subdued interface. Plain buttons highlight four main task areas: "Scan", "Updater", "Reports" and "Virtual Keyboard". Click any of these and a new pane fades into place. And for the most part this also keeps options to a minimum, with just a few key buttons to consider.

Further options aren't too far away, though. A "Show Additional Tools" menu lists functions including Quarantine, Vulnerability Scan, Browser Configuration, Privacy Cleaner, Kaspersky Rescue Disk, Microsoft Windows Troubleshooting and "Upgrade". All the usual settings are on offer, too, and the program seems surprisingly complete for a very first public release.


Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015 Technical Preview doesn't appear significantly different to the 2014 edition, and so most people can safely ignore it for now. If you're a fan of the company, though, there's an hour or two of fun to be had in searching for any changes. And it seems quite stable, although you should still be careful: this is an early beta, don't install it anywhere unless you've a full system backup to hand.

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.
