Smart DNS Changer 3.2.0
A one-stop DNS, proxy and MAC address changer

Smart DNS Changer is a versatile network tool which can change your DNS server, MAC address and PC proxy settings.

The program installs quickly and easily. We were expecting adware, but there were no problems, and Smart DNS Changer was running within a few seconds.

A tabbed interface opens at the "DNS Changer". This lists several common DNS servers - Comodo, Google, Norton, Norton ConnectSafe, OpenDNS, Yandex - along with a default "Automatic" option, and you can change your current settings in a couple of clicks. There are also boxes to enter DNS addresses manually, and buttons to open the Windows Network Connections window and Network Diagnostics applet.

Most of the competition stops there, but Smart DNS Changer takes the idea just a little further. A "kid shield" tab allows you to select different DNS servers for each user on a computer, and these will automatically be applied whenever they log on. This means your children could be set to use a filtered DNS, blocking non-family-friendly sites, while you're able to browse the web as normal.

A third tab provides a MAC address changer. If your internet connection is blocked because of your MAC address, choose the appropriate network adapter here and manually enter a new one (or click "Random MAC Address" to have one set automatically).

There's also a "Proxy Changer" tab, but this is by far the weakest section. There are no built-in lists of proxies, just a link to web page: you must follow that, find something suitable, then copy and paste it back into the Smart DNS Changer "Proxy" box. It works, but it's not exactly convenient.

Verdict:

There are plenty of similar tools around, but Smart DNS Changer scores with its ability to set a different DNS server for every PC user account. The MAC changer could also be useful. And there are lots of thoughtful touches, from helpful text descriptions about each feature, to convenient links for Windows network tools.

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.
