F-Secure Anti-Virus 2014
Keep your PC virus and spyware-free

F-Secure Anti-Virus 2013 is a straightforward and effective antivirus engine which will do its best to keep all malware locked firmly out of your PC.

And "its best" is often very good indeed; F-Secure Internet Security 2013 was ranked as offering 100% effective protection in an AV-Test report from July 2013.

Install the program and it'll begin to protect you right away. Any files you access are checked for potential threats, and F-Secure's DeepGuard technology (enhanced to version 5 with this release) keeps an eye on the behaviour of all running processes, looking out for any which might be behaving suspiciously. This raises a few more alerts than we'd like, just initially, but once you've told it which programs to trust then things soon settle down.

You can of course also launch on-demand scans, though, either from the F-Secure console or by right-clicking the appropriate file or folder within Explorer.

A scheduled scanning option allows you to run automated checks on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, or just whenever your PC has been idle for a specified amount of time.

And all this comes presented in a redesigned and much simplified interface. Whether it's "better", we're not quite sure; it seems like there's less clutter per dialog, but you may well have to look through more dialog boxes to find what you need.

Don't let that put you off, though: the jury may be out on the new look, but the core antivirus engine is great.

Verdict:

A straightforward and easy-to-use way to protect your PC from malware

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.
