SX Antivirus Kit 1.0
All SecurityXploded's virus hunting tools in one place

SX Antivirus Kit is a collection of all the virus-hunting tools released by SecurityXploded (that's 14 in total).

There's no antivirus engine here, nothing to directly detect and remove malware. Instead, the tools are more about manual detection, helping you spot possible signs of infection.

"Stream Armor" searches your system for files containing Alternate Data Streams, for example, a technique sometimes used by malware to conceal its code.

"ProcNetMonitor" displays any processes with network connections. You can check anything suspect at VirusTotal, and close dubious processes in a couple of clicks.

"NetShareMonitor" lists your network shares and shows you who's accessing them right now.

"AdvancedWinServiceManager" displays your installed services, highlights anything unusual, and allows you to check the relevant files at VirusTotal.

The VirusTotal support continues with VirusTotalScanner, which uploads a file to the site and displays a report for you.

You also get tools to manage Windows Autorun, control Internet Explorer BHO's, calculate and verify file hashes, and more.

There's nothing too surprising here, and we found small issues with several of the tools. Some need administrative rights, for instance, but they won't self-elevate: run them as a standard user and they'll crash, or display a misleading error message.

Elsewhere, the VirusTotal Scanner can only upload and check one file at a time. And SpyDLLRemover doesn't run on Windows 8 at all.

There are some useful tools here, though, and SX Antivirus Kit is an easy way to get hold of them in one go. Worth a look if you don't already have something similar.

Verdict:

SX Antivirus Kit doesn't have any outstanding tools, but there are a few which can help out with manual malware-hunting.

Please note, the package arrives as an installer, but most of its tools are actually portable. Use an archive manager like 7Zip to extract the contents of Setup_SXAntivirusKit.exe, check the destination folder, and you'll find the various executables, ready to launch.

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.
