Windows Hotfix Downloader 7.5
Take full control of your Windows updates

Windows Hotfix Downloader is a portable tool which aims to give you more control of your Windows updates.

At its simplest, you might just use the program to download the list of updates for any or all of its supported products: Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Office 2010/ Office 2010 SP2, Office 2013/ Office 2013 SP2 (both 32 and 64-bit editions are covered).

You're able to browse the list and view the Microsoft support pages for any particular update with a click or two. Any or all of the updates may then be downloaded and installed on your current PC, or saved for use on another system (handy for computers which don't have a permanent internet connection).

The program can also integrate updates, language packs, service packs, drivers and more into your Windows and Office setup discs, so any installation will be just as you'd like, no further manual updates required.

There are bonus tools to help you create bootable UEFI flash drives for installing Windows 7/ 8/ 8.1, create a bootable Office ISO image, even back up your drivers (slightly off-topic, but still useful).

You get some thoughtful settings, too. The program can prevent your PC from sleeping while Windows Hotfix Downloader is running, for example. You're able to set the priority of the update process. And there's an option to limit the program's bandwidth use, so limiting its impact on the rest of your system.

Version 7.5 brings:
 • Updated download list format (Windows 8.1)
 • Added Proxy settings

Verdict:

If you're a PC beginner, or only need to manage a single computer, then Windows Hotfix Downloader probably isn't going to help. But if you've some background in this area (you understand the importance of a setting like "Dism Location Path", for example), and you're currently managing several Windows systems, then the program could save you a lot of time and hassle.

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.
