Emsisoft Online Armor Free 7
Keep hackers firmly locked out of your PC with this versatile firewall

Online Armor Free is a powerful software firewall that also includes a host of other useful security features.

Once installed, the program immediately begins to monitor network connections to and from your PC. Unsolicited incoming connections are blocked, keeping hackers firmly locked out of your system. And your installed applications aren't allowed to make internet connections unless Online Armor knows they're safe, or you give your specific permission.

In our tests Online Armor also did a good job of allowing legitimate connections on our local network, while blocking everything else. If you have any problems, though, the flexible rules-based interface means you can quickly tweak the system to suit your precise needs.

Malware protection features include behaviour monitoring, that will alert you if programs are behaving suspiciously. You get built-in keylogger detection, and Online Armor will also alert you to new programs that try to set themselves to run automatically when Windows starts, giving you a chance to block this behaviour if you don't approve.

And script protection aims to prevent your PC being compromised by malicious scripts.

Please note, Online Armor also comes in two commercial flavours.

Online Armor Premium ($40) adds browsing tools including a phishing filter, banking mode and DNS spoofing protection. And Online Armor ++ ($60) takes the Premium version, and extends it with a complete antivirus tool and rootkit scanner.

If you'd like to try either of these, then the good news is that they all use the same download - just choose whether you'd like to install the Free, Premium or ++ versions during installation.

Online Armor 7 new features include:

Windows 8.1 compatibility
Faster updates
Better performance
Improved banking mode
300+ bugs fixed

Verdict:

An excellent free firewall with a lengthy list of useful bonus features

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.
