AVG Premium Security 2014
Block malware and hackers, speed up your PC and protect yourself from identity theft with this enhanced security suite

AVG Premium Security 2014 is an extended version of AVG's Internet Security 2014 which includes some very useful extras.

Identity Alert, for instance, is a web service which can scour the web looking for personal details like your credit card number, email address or telephone number. If it finds anything suspicious - a hacker has dumped your details online somewhere, perhaps - you'll be sent an email alert, giving you valuable time to inform your bank, change passwords and so on.

And Quick Tune is a simple but straightforward PC cleanup tool aims to enhance your system's performance by fixing Registry errors, removing junk files, defragmenting your hard drive and detecting and deleting broken shortcuts.

Of course you also get all the regular AVG Internet Security 2014 features. And these start with the core antivirus engine, which is not only a little more accurate in this release, but will also scan your system up to 36% faster.

Elsewhere, browsing protection sees the program scan web pages for danger before you even get to see them. A smart firewall blocks network attacks and intelligently controls access to your internet connection (so there are no annoying popups and alerts), while in our tests AVG's spam filter now blocks around 88% of all junk emails at its default settings (and that's an impressive 60% improvement on the previous edition).

All this is presented in a clean, simple and very Windows 8-like interface, which makes it easy to access the program's various features and functionality.

And there are plenty of other improvements across the suite. AVG Premium Security 2014 is now fully Windows 8.1-compatible, for instance; there's support for touch screens; and the package now loads more quickly, uses less resources, and generally has a reduced performance impact on your PC.

With the 2014 edition, AVG has added a File Shredder module, for securely erasing important documents, a Data Safe function, where you can securely store data in a password-protected virtual disk, plus improved detection for finding the most stubborn malware.

AVG Premium Security 2014 users now get two premium mobile apps for free (regular value $9.99/£6.50/€7.50), which will protect your Android smartphone and tablet device. Details of how to get your AVG Mobile AntiVirus PRO apps are included in Premium Security, but only after including your license code. The trial version only includes access to the free versions of the mobile apps.

Verdict:

AVG Premium Security 2014 is a powerful security suite, and its Identity Alert in particular could save you a great deal of trouble by alerting you to the loss of key personal details.

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.
