Bitdefender Internet Security 2016
Keep your PC malware-free

Bitdefender Internet Security 2016 is the company's mainstream security suite, offering antivirus, firewall, browsing protection, parental controls, antispam, password management and more.

There are plenty of features to explore, but a well-designed interface means most common tasks are available with a single click, while wider groups of functions are accessible via three main tiles (Protection, Privacy, Tools). Even first-time users will quickly find what they need.

The big addition this time is ransomware protection. The suite monitors access to files in your main user folders (and anywhere else you like), detecting and blocking unauthorised attempts to delete or tamper with your files.

There's a strong focus on ease of use. Bitdefender's Wallet can fill web forms with user names, passwords, even credit card details, often allowing you to pay online in a single step. Bitdefender's Vulnerability Scanner not only finds missing patches on your PC, it also provides links to help you download and install them.

Smart performance technology sees the suite automatically optimise your system for different situations. Play a game and Bitdefender enables the Game Profile, disabling unnecessary services and working to speed up your PC. The Movie Profile kicks in when you're watching a movie, optimising the suite's settings and enhancing visual effects. And if your battery is running low, the Battery Mode Profile optimises Internet Security and Windows settings to save energy.

Bitdefender's real strength comes in the protection it provides, though. AV-Comparatives' Real-World Protection tests generally place it in the top 3, but don't take our word for it - check out the latest results here.

Verdict:

Its core security features are largely unchanged, but the new anti-ransomware technology is a welcome addition, and overall Bitdefender Internet Security 2016 is a solid and reliable suite.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
