Clam Sentinel 1.21
Add basic real-time antivirus protection to ClamWin

Clam Sentinel is a lightweight tool which extends the antivirus tool ClamWin with basic real-time protection.

The program works by monitoring the drives you specify (local, removable or network) for new or modified files, then launching ClamWin to scan anything it finds.

This could generate a lot of extra activity on your PC, but there are various configuration options to keep it under control. You can choose the drives, paths and file extensions to scan, as well as setting the maximum number of simultaneous scans, very helpful when tuning your system for the best results.

It's important to keep in mind that Clam Sentinel is no substitute for the built-in real-time protection systems of other antivirus tools. It has fewer mechanisms for detecting new files, for example, is more easily bypassed, and can't defend itself from malware like most of the competition.

Still, the program's developer does point out that Clam Sentinel great for older computers - in fact, it runs on anything from Windows 98 upwards - and on balance it's a useful extension to ClamWin.

(Please note: you must install ClamWin before Clam Sentinel for the program to work.)

Verdict:

ClamWin isn't a great antivirus tool, but if you like or must use it for some reason, then Clam Sentinel extends the program with basic - but still welcome - real-time protection.

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.
