VTzilla 1.5
Check files for malware before they're downloaded (Firefox)

VTzilla is a Firefox extension which uses VirusTotal to scan links and files before they're downloaded.

If you're unsure about a particular link then you can right-click it, and select "Scan with VirusTotal". The URL is passed to VirusTotal, checked against 50+ top antivirus engines, and you're presented with a report on site safety in a few seconds.

That option is relatively hidden, of course, and there's a chance you'll forget to use it. Fortunately the developer understands that, and VTzilla also adds a "Scan with VirusTotal" button to the download box as a permanent reminder. One click and you'll be reading the report on any file.

Less usefully, VTzilla also adds a toolbar where you can search VirusTotal for hashes, URLs and more, or launch a scan of your current site. This grabs a lot of screen real estate and isn't customisable, but you can at least turn it off and just use the right-click option and download box button (click View > Toolbars > VirusTotal Toolbar).

Verdict:

The interface could be reworked to save screen real estate, but VTzilla's core functions work well, enabling you to check files with VirusTotal on demand.

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.
