Emsisoft Anti-Malware 9.0
Emsisoft's first completely integrated security solution

Emsisoft Internet Security 9.0 is a new product from the company, a fully integrated security suite which includes antivirus, a firewall, and surfing protection.

What you'll notice first, however, is the brand new, faintly Windows 8-like interface. Four colourful tiles represent the program's main functions (Protection, Scan, Quarantine, Logs), and there's status information on your license and last update. You also get one-click access to common features and menus, and at first glance it seems to be a good balance between ease of use and functionality.

What we next noticed is that our system was only "partially protected"; the new firewall wasn't working. And when we tried to activate it, the program hung. Maybe it was something local to our system - the firewall seems to be working fine for others - or just a beta quirk, but don't be overly surprised if it happens to you.

The rest of the program ran as expected, correctly detecting malware (and a little more than Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, although slower) and blocking some malicious websites.

New features this time include a new firewall core with full support for IPv6, extended packet filtering rules and improved performance.

Enhanced Windows 8 and 8.1 support means the program will take greater advantage of live tiles and the new notification system.

Scanning accuracy and malware removal has been improved, particularly for 64-bit systems.

And this all comes packaged in an enhanced core which makes better use of Windows' own security technologies (ASLR, DEP), while also reducing resource requirements and boosting overall performance.

Please note, you must uninstall any existing Emsisoft Anti-Malware or Online Armor package before installing the beta.


An interesting first look at Emsisoft's latest technology. It didn't all work smoothly for us, but that's what happens with betas - don't install it anywhere important unless you've a full backup available.

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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.
