Emsisoft's virus hunter gets a new look

When online, the threat of infection from viruses and spyware is very real. Opting to install one program to protect against viruses and another to protect against spyware can not only end up being expensive, but means that your computer is running more software than it really needs to, and this can lead to a drop in performance. Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a combined anti-spyware and anti-virus tool that combats both types of online threat.

By integrating the two protection engines into one, the impact on system performance can be kept to a minimum while ensuring that your computer remain safe. As well as checking individual files for signs of infection, the program also monitors for suspicious behaviour which may be indicative of malware infection. In this way, Emsisoft Anti-Malware is able to offer an incredibly high level of protection, even against threats which are yet to be recognised by the security community.

Should a suspicious program be detected, you will be provided with the opportunity to block or permit the action. VPN software could be used for malicious purposes, but it is equally likely that you have opted to install such a program - by providing you with a choice about whether specific programs should be blocked or not, Emsisoft Anti-Malware enables you to keep using the software you have become used to without worrying out it not working.

This new v9 release features a completely revamped, 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 the new look seems to be a good balance between ease of use and functionality.

Emsisoft says scanning accuracy and malware removal has also been improved, particularly for 64-bit systems.

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

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.

Best of all, Emsisoft Anti-Malware is designed as an extra layer of security, so you scan and protect your computer, without having to remove your existing security software. It compliments rather than substitutes your existing security.

Verdict:

Brand new user-interface, more accurate scanning and improved 64-bit support make this a compelling release.

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.
