Glary Utilities
Optimise, clean and maintain your PC

The Glary Utilities are a very complete, and surprisingly free suite of tools that provide almost everything you need to optimise, clean and maintain your PC.

A "Clean Up & Repair" section leads off with useful tools to find redundant disk files and clean your Registry, while extra modules help to remove broken shortcuts and make it easier to uninstall unwanted programs.

The "Optimize & Improve" section includes modules to control your Windows Startup programs, defrag the Registry and manage various right-click menus.

Clicking "Privacy & Security" reveals an option to clear your browsing and Windows histories, as well as tools to encrypt, decrypt, undelete and securely wipe confidential files.

The "Files and Folders" section provides modules to show you how your hard drive space is being used, and free some of it up by locating duplicate files and empty folders.

"System Tools" includes an "Internet Explorer Assistant", which displays various IE add-ons and makes it easier to remove them.

And if the sheer volume of options puts you off, don't worry, a 1-Click Maintenance module will locate and remove most problems in, well, a click.

Version 5.58 brings:

- Optimized Software Update: Optimized local formatting software name and version algorithm
- Optimized Software Update: Optimized edition comparison algorithm
- Optimized Software Update: Fixed the wrong indication of software need to update after operation of 'Hide beta version'
- Optimized Tracks Eraser: added 'MediaMonkey' and 'Oxygen XML Editor'
- Optimized Disk Cleaner: added 'SpyBot Search and Destroy' and 'Remote Desktop'
- Minor GUI improvements
- Minor bug fixes

Verdict:

The quality of the individual tools is variable: the Duplicate Files Finder missed most of the duplicates on our test PC, for instance. Other modules delivered much better results, though, and it's hard to criticise anything that offers so much functionality for free. Give the suite a try.

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
