Bitdefender Internet Security 2015
Keep your PC malware-free

Bitdefender Internet Security 2015 is the company's mainstream security suite, offering antivirus, firewall, browsing protection, parental controls, antispam, password management and more.

There are plenty of features to explore, but a revamped interface means the most common tasks (Quick Scan, Update, Safepay, Optimize) are now available with a single click, while wider groups of functions are accessible via three main tiles (Protection, Privacy, Tools). Even first-time users will quickly find what they need.

The focus on ease of use continues elsewhere. Bitdefender's Wallet can now automatically fill web forms with user names, passwords, even credit card details, often allowing you to pay online in a single step. And Bitdefender's Vulnerability Scanner not only finds missing patches on your PC, it also provides links to help you download and install them.

A new Activity Profiles feature sees the suite 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 the suite's settings and enhancing visual effects. And if your battery is running low, the Battery Mode Profile optimises Internet Security 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.

There are smaller improvements dotted around the suite: better reports, enhanced parental controls, and a more capable desktop widget, while the spam filter is now entirely cloud-based, improving accuracy and making it more responsive to the latest threats.

Bitdefender's real strength comes in the protection it provides, though. The independent labs typically give it very high marks, and as we write, AV-Comparatives' May 2014 Real-World Protection Test found Bitdefender's package blocked 100% of threats. Only Panda, out of 21 other entrants, could match them.

What's new in build 18.20?

- New design for Safepay Settings;
- Integrated SandBox 1.28;
- AVCHV driver listed with (!) in Device Manager on some systems - fixed;
- Other fixes and improvements;

Verdict:

Its core security features are largely unchanged, but Bitdefender Internet Security 2015 is still a welcome update with some handy new features. In particular, 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 to use than ever.

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.
