Baidu PC Faster 4.0.9.75461
A one-stop PC speedup and maintenance suite

Baidu PC Faster is a free PC optimisation, cleanup and maintenance suite.

The program has all the regular speedup tools, with modules to remove junk files, clean the Registry, wipe browser and application histories, control your Windows startup programs, optimise your internet connection, free up system resources, and more.

The App Store is a more unusual extra. On installation, it checks for and highlights any missing updates for your applications. But it also provides an easy way to find and install further programs. If you need an Office-type application, for example, you might click the "Business" category, browse to LibreOffice, click "Install", and just wait: Baidu PC Faster will download the latest version and launch its installer for you.

The integrated Virus Scanner is another ingredient you won't find in most maintenance suites. In this case that might be a good thing - it's an on-demand scanner only (no real-time protection), and not very accurate - but it's easily accessible if you need a quick system check.

Bonus extras include a defrag module, file wipe and undelete tools, a context menu editor, LSP repair tool, and more. Some of these are basic, and none are even close to the best of breed freeware, but a few are worth having.

Baidu PC Faster has some problems. Its recommendations can be questionable; several modules are horribly limited; the English language translation is one of the worst we've ever seen in a corporate product ("impact of other startup items may result in ineffective settings partly"); and it's a little intrusive, adding two services to your PC which are running all the time.

The program does have some time-saving features, though, and a clean and straightforward interface keeps it easy to use. If you're an experienced PC user, looking for a free maintenance suite, then it's worth a closer look.

Verdict:

Baidu PC Faster is an easy-to-use PC speedup suite with some genuinely effective features. Its tools vary greatly in their quality, though, and you should explore them carefully to find out what works for you, and what really doesn't.

I took a chance...

So far it's been fine, I even added their Avira based virus protection. The program seems lightweight and hasn't caused any problems.

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.
