Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015
Go way beyond the usual antivirus basics

Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015 is the latest edition of Bitdefender's feature-packed antivirus package.

At the core of the program is an accurate and reliable antivirus engine. Don't take our word for it: AV-Test have said it offers the best protection around for the last 3 years, while AV-Comparatives report it blocked 100% of threats in their May 2014 Real-World Protection Test.

There are a stack of bonus extras, some with major improvements in this release. Bitdefender's Wallet not only remembers your user names and passwords, for instance - it can autocomplete your credit card details in web payment forms. And the Vulnerability Scanner finds missing patches and updates on your PC, and now provides links to help you download and install them.

A new Activity Profiles feature sees the program automatically optimise your system for different situations. Play a game and BitDefender enables the Game Profile, disabling unnecessary services and working to speed up your PC. The Movie Profile kicks in when you're watching a movie, optimising Bitdefender's settings and enhancing visual effects. And if your battery is running low, the Battery Mode Profile optimises Antivirus Plus and Windows settings to save energy.

If you're still worried about performance, the Tuneup section (Tools > Tuneup) provides six new modules to help: Boot Optimizer, PC Clean-Up, Disk Defragmenter, Registry Cleaner, Registry Recovery and Duplicate Finder. Or, if exploring all those sounds too complicated, the new One-Click Optimizer will clean up your PC all on its own.

Of course it's the security provided by Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015 which really matters, and there are plenty of tools for you to explore. A desktop widget makes it easy to scan files or monitor your security; the USB Immunizer prevents malware infecting your Flash keys; Bitdefender's Rescue Mode provides a secure and isolated environment, outside of Windows, which can help remove even the most stubborn threats.

It's a long list of features, but fortunately Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015 is relatively easy to use. A revamped interface means common tasks (Quick Scan, Update, Safepay, Optimize) are now available with a single click, while other functions are accessible via three main tiles (Protection, Privacy, Tools). Even first-time users will quickly find what they need.

Verdict:

Its core security features remain largely unchanged, but Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015 is still an excellent update. The new Profiles system, enhanced vulnerability scanner and form filler for online transactions should all save you time, and the revamped interface means the package is easier than ever to use.

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.
