BullGuard Antivirus 2014
Protect your PC from malware, spam, dangerous websites and more

BullGuard Antivirus 2014 is a straightforward security tool that will detect and block malware before it can harm your PC.

The program includes strong real time protection measures, for instance, scanning incoming emails and the files you access, looking for potential dangers.

A "Safe Browsing" module blocks access to known dangerous sites, reducing your chance of becoming infected in the first place.

BullGuard Antivirus also monitors the behaviour of everything running on your PC, looking for anything suspicious, which allows it to detect even some brand new, previously undiscovered threats.

The program's core antivirus engine can then run scheduled scans every day, week or month, to check for anything that may have slipped through the net. Or of course you can run additional scans whenever you like.

And you also get BullGuard Spamfilter, a welcome bonus, which prevents phishing emails and other junk from reaching your Inbox.

The 2014 release features an updated behavioural engine for better detection, and has improved repair capabilities, while also reducing its performance impact on your system.

A redesigned and simplified interface clearly displays all the suite's modules and their current status.

A new Messaging Centre acts as a central hub for the package, keeping you up-to-date with program events and the status of any ongoing tasks. And there are various tweaks aimed at making the system easier to use, so for instance the Settings dialog can now be switched from Basic to an Advanced view.

Verdict:

An effective tool that feels more like an internet security suite than a stand-alone antivirus package, thanks to useful extras like browsing protection and the spam filter

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
