Immunet FREE Antivirus 3.1
Add an extra layer of antivirus protection to your PC with this cloud-based security tool

Immunet FREE Antivirus is a simple cloud-based tool which can run alongside most antivirus packages to enhance your PCs security.

The program's cloud-based nature means it's very lightweight. Its two core processes typically consume under 14MB of RAM; even when scanning it peaked at around 16MB on our test PC; and of course there are no bulky database updates to download. Immunet always uses the most up-to-date information from the cloud.

On the other hand, the free version of Immunet doesn't protect you when you're offline. It has plenty of other restrictions: no "advanced detection and removal" of malware, no scheduled scans, no "deep scans for archived and installer files"; no automatic cleaning of infected files, no "advanced packer support", no scanning of email databases.

And it's slow, too. Even when we chose the Flash Scan, which limited itself to checking running processes and the Registry, the program took around three and a half minutes to finish. We've seen other antivirus tools run basic system scans more quickly.

Still, Immunet is supposed to be run alongside another antivirus tool, not used on its own, so maybe these issues aren't quite as important. And perhaps the program's major selling point is its lightweight design. If you're looking for extra antivirus protection which won't slow you down then it just might be worth a look.

And if you like the basic program then you can always upgrade to Immunet Plus, which fixes all of these issues (apart from scanning speed) and can be yours for $24.95 a year. Find out more at the Immunet site.

Verdict:

Immunet 3.0 is slow, and basic. It's also ultra-lightweight and runs happily alongside many other antivirus packages, though, so if you're looking for a simple second layer of protection then it may be of interest.

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.
