TweakNow WinSecret
Explore dozens of powerful windows tweaks

If you need to tweak some aspect of Windows then you could hunt around various properties dialogs, Control Panel applets, command line tools and the Registry, looking for the appropriate setting. But it might be easier to just install TweakNow WinSecret, which brings together many of the best Windows tweaks around, and organises them into neat categories so they're generally very easy to find.

Click Windows Secret and choose the Windows Explorer option, for example, and you'll find useful options you can add to the Explorer right-click menu. "Copy to" and "Move to" make it easier to copy and move files, for instance; Command Prompt opens a command prompt window at the selected directory; and Encrypt and Decrypt options let you encrypt or decrypt files or folders in a couple of clicks (as long as your version of Windows supports this).

Are the kids always messing up your PCs settings? TweakNow WinSecret can limit their access by hiding the hard drives you specify, preventing access to particular Control Panel applets, and disabling their use of sensitive programs like REGEDIT.

If you're more concerned about broadband performance, then take a look at the Network & Internet section. It lets you tweak many essential settings, including Time To Live, SACK, MTU, black hole detection, and more.

And elsewhere are sections to tweak the Windows logon process, your desktop, Start menu, system folder locations, and more. As ever with tweaking tools, it's best to make just one or two changes at a time so you can keep track of what you're doing. But if there are any problems, don't worry - TweakNow WinSecret always backs up the original Registry settings before it makes any changes. If you realise you've made a mistake, then click Restore Backup, choose the last backup file and any tweaks you made will immediately be reversed.

New in v4.2.7:

Quick Optimizer: added support for Microsoft Office 2013.
General: remove year from the application title.
General: minor improvements and bug fixes.

Verdict:

Some tweaks assume a great deal of technical knowledge, and so PC novices should use TweakNow WinSecret with care. There are plenty of useful options available here, though, and it's well worth a place in your tweaking toolkit

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.
