Hotspot Shield 3.42
Hotspot Shield helps to protect your privacy online and allwos unrestricted access to the internet

Despite the name, Hotspot Shield can be used to protect both wired and wireless internet connections, and it has been designed to allow safe, secure internet access wherever you may be. From wireless hotspots in towns and cities, to making use of free internet connections in airports and hotels, there are risks associated with access the internet on the move. Hotspot Shield create a virtual private network which in turn helps to secure your internet connection and protect personal information from potential hackers.

Your IP address is kept private making it possible to browse the internet anonymously, but the key focus is on security. The program also has a number of other benefits. By acting as a proxy, Hotspot Shield makes it possible to access parts of the internet that might otherwise be blocked. Web sites that are restricted to visitors from particular countries can be accessed regardless of where you are

It is worth pointing out that during the installation of Hotspot Shield, various other programs and browser toolbars are offered as optional extras. These are not needed to use the program and can be safely ignored. Whether you are concerned about your privacy, or what to access limited international site, Hotspot Shield is worth checking out.

Verdict:

Hotspot Shield is packed with unnecessary extras, but hiding beneath the surface is a genuinely useful tool

This is an extremely bad software to install in your PC or notebook

Posted by: Howard Mann, 31 October 2012 15:33

Even though this software appears to be highly rated by stupid online reviewers it is in fact an extremely bad and intrusive piece of software because it uses the Conduit push ad engine to bombard your browsers with all kinds of unsolicited and unwanted ads that you cannot get rid of. And it is also extremely difficult to erase, delete or otherwise banish the stealthy Conduit engine software that it installs without your knowledge or approval in your computer. Be very, very wary of this software. There are better free anonymous surfing softwares out there to choose from.

Which is a reason why we only gave it a relatively low-average rating.

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.
