AntiSnooper 1.1
Obscure sensitive windows when not in focus using AntiSnooper.

Sometimes you don’t want other people to see what’s on your Windows desktop. Perhaps you work in an open office where certain programs contain sensitive or private information you’d rather not have to keep hiding from view. Or maybe you’re on the phone and don’t want your other half to see what present you’re spying for their birthday.

If, for whatever reason, you’d like to be able to obscure individual application windows then AntiSnooper is the tool to choose. It’s incredibly simple to use, effective and able to hide selected windows after a user-selected delay. With AntiSnooper running, just open the program in question – you should see it appear in the Windows Protection tab of AntiSnooper. Verify which window it refers to by clicking the highlight window button on the right, then click + to create a profile for that program.

First review and – if necessary – modify the profile name. Next, set a time-out in seconds – this is how long the window can remain unfocussed for before it’s obscured. Now choose your protection type: Window obscure simply blurs the window itself – use the dial to set the strength of the effect, while Windows ScreenSaver places a custom screensaver over the window in question – you have a choice of six.

Click OK and the profile details are stored for future use (manage these from the Protected Profiles window) while protection is immediate. You can temporarily suspend any window protection via AntiSnooper’s main window – simply click the pause button.

You can also configure AntiSnooper to start automatically with Windows and minimise it to the System Tray so it’s invisible when in use.

Verdict:

It's a simple way to hide background windows from view for privacy purposes while you're at your computer, but you'll still need to lock your desktop when moving away from your PC to keep those prying eyes at bay.

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.
