WinZip System Utilities Suite
Get an at-a-glance view of how WinZip System Utilities Suite rates your PC’s health.

Once upon a time the only way to open zip files on your computer was by purchasing a dedicated tool. In those far-off times, WinZip ruled the roost, but now that zip files can be opened natively by Windows, it appears the company has decided it needs to branch out.

The net result is this, a collection of system tools designed to improve your computer’s performance. You can perform a quick scan and optimisation, or you can take the time to explore the separate tools, of which there are 20 in total.

Although everything is bound together by a single interface, the tools themselves all function independently of each other, although they’re themed in such a way as to look like they’re part of an integrated suite.

The tools are organised into seven core areas: Registry, disk cleaning, Windows optimisers, security and privacy, backup and recovery, common problems and regular maintenance. We particularly like the fact that Registry cleaning and optimisation are handled separately (the latter is the actual performance booster, the former often introduces more problems than it fixes). There are the tools you’d expect to find in a suite like this, such as the disk defragmenter, memory optimiser, startup manager and system cleaner, but there are some hidden gems too.

The Game Optimiser will appeal to avid gamers – it basically creates a virtual desktop inside which gaming performance is maximised by disabling everyday processes sapping system resources in normal day-to-day use. Secure Encryptor allows you to protect sensitive files while there’s also a useful system files backup and restore tool. We also like the idea of the PC Fixer, which displays a list of common Windows problems divided into categories, offering a one-click fix to those problems. The theory is good, but the number of fixes is a little disappointing.

As system suites go, there’s a decent range of tools to choose from. The only downside is the price – it would be a little steep even for a one-off fee, but this is an annual subscription charge, which makes it particularly poor value. We’re also not impressed that the trial version is a little more than a demo, with most functions off-limits until you purchase the full copy.

Verdict:

A decent collection of tools, but most of the functionality is available elsewhere for less – if not free.

Windows 10 May 2019 Update ISO (build 1903)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows May 2019 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 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.

May 2019 Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO will give you build 1903 which is the May 2019 Update.
