Auslogics Browser Care 2.0.1.0
Simple, fuss-free and a good browser management tool for novices.

Is your browser littered with unwanted toolbars and add-ons? Does it open to the wrong home page? Worried about what data’s sitting on your hard drive revealing your browsing habit to all and sundry? Then Auslogics Browser Care might help.

This free tool – part of Auslogics’ BoostSpeed optimisation suite – has been engineered primarily for novices, and works with Internet Explorer, Chrome and Firefox across a series of tabs. Everything you need to know about regaining control and tweaking your browser can be found here, with clearly labelled sections revealing how to manage your home page, disable (or delete) toolbars and add-ons, change your browser’s default search engine and tools for clearing up privacy. You can even switch default browser from here.

Nothing on offer here can’t already be done within your browser, but Browser Care simply puts these tools at your fingertips. Better still, it even offers access to Auslogics’ Recovery Source via the Restore button, letting you undo any changes you make should you want to reset and start again.

The program is best for confused novices, and may also be of use cleaning up after browser infections, although if the infection is still present Browser Care may not be able to stop it.

Version 2 adds a system health scanner, that immediately alerts you to thousands of potential problems with your computer. This is little more than an attempt to get you to download and install the main BoostSpeed tool, and if we’re honest is a little disingenuous, particularly given the fact the program is aimed at beginners who may take its findings at face value.

Version 2 also promises to better handle all browser plugins, fix all known bugs and improves the browser cache cleanup feature.

What's new in 2.0.1.0?

- improved internal libraries;
- fixed a few minor bugs.

Verdict:

A decent enough tool that is easy to use and may be of help after removing a browser infection, but we’re not convinced by the motives behind the new system health tool.

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.
