Serials & Passwords 2013


Adobe Acrobat XI Pro

Serial: 1118-1642-4291-8842-9439-3703

Adobe Acrobat is so firmly established as the premiere PDF application on the planet, and the PDF format is so firmly established as a worldwide standard that a new version, like Adobe Acrobat XI, may not seem very exciting. In fact, though, Acrobat XI does more to simplify and streamline PDF editing and management than anything I've seen in a long time, and it's an essential—and reasonably priced—upgrade for all serious PDF creators.

Acrobat for the first time makes it almost as easy to edit text and graphics in a PDF as it is in a word-processor, though with significant limitations that I'll get to in a moment. The formerly clumsy process of merging documents into a single PDF now gets a streamlined and powerful interface. New form-editing and document-signing features make it easier than ever to add electronic signatures to documents via computers, tablets, and smartphones. Acrobat XI preserves the simplified interface that Adobe introduced in Acrobat X, but it's learned a lot of smooth new moves.


Adobe Photoshop CC

Serial: 1045-1642-4291-8842-9439-3703

Creative Cloud changes everything. Well, maybe not everything: Adobe Photoshop CC looks nearly identical to its CS6 predecessor, but it packs several powerful new features, including a revolutionary photo motion blur corrector, more effective image upscaling (think getting those low-def images looking good on a Retina display), new photo geometry corrections, and multiple shape and path selections.

Since it's part of the cloud subscription, as long as you pay $19.99 a month for Photoshop alone or $49.99 for the full creative suite ($29.99 for students, teachers, and upgraders from CS3 and later), you'll always have access to any new features that come along. That sounds more palatable to me than the old $699 to $999 up front, though I realize that some longtime users have expressed displeasure that they have to continue paying to use software. With the subscription, it would take you at least 3 years to spend the previous up-front money, and by then, you'd probably want to upgrade anyway.


Adobe InDesign CC

Serial: 1037-1642-4291-8842-9439-3703

First introduced in 1999, Adobe InDesign is the base of the publishing platform. It is targeted at designers, publishers and anyone who job it is to create professional layouts for periodical publications, posters, print media, and more. It is now taking on more responsibility in the world of electronic publishing and supports content consumption on various electronic devices.

So what is new with InDesign CC?

• A more modern UI, updated so that the user interface is consistent with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator, making it easier to work across your Adobe applications. And now you control the brightness of the UI so you can see your layouts more clearly.

• Faster Performance from new under-the-hood improvements throughout InDesign keep you working quickly and smoothly. Harness all of your system’s RAM with native 64-bit support. See the greatest improvements in speed and stability when printing and when exporting PDF and INX files.

• HiDPI and Retina display support means that from text to complex artwork, every element of your design will have greater clarity and vibrancy, thanks to support for the high-resolution Retina display on the new MacBook Pro.


Adobe Illustrator CC

Serial: 1034-1642-4291-8842-9439-3703

Adobe Illustrator is a vector-based graphics editor. It was first developed for the Apple Macintosh in 1986 and is the companion product of Adobe Photoshop. It wasn’t until the mid-1990s with Illustrator 7′s ports for both Windows and Mac that Illustrator became the standard for the design industry.

So what is new with Illustrator CC?

Touch Type tool: This gives you a new way to design with type. You can take and manipulate discrete characters within a type object as if they were individual objects. There is no need to set each letter separately or convert text to outlines and ungroup the result. Instead, using simple on-character controls, you can scale, rotate, and reposition each letter individually, as well as distort letters vertically and horizontally. The best part is that the text remains editable, so you can change the font, modify kerning, tracking, leading, and baseline position, or edit the text at any time.

Images in brushes: Art, Pattern, and Scatter brushes can contain raster images, so you can paint with a brush made from a photo, quickly creating complex organic designs with simple brush strokes. As with all Illustrator brushes, strokes can be reshaped and modified at will – when you modify a path, the artwork adjusts accordingly. Use new corner options to fine-tune the brush, giving it automatically created corner tiles that provide a perfect fit at internal and external corners.

CSS extraction gives you the ability to generate and export CSS code, an efficient way of maintaining the integrity of your design. You can then use the new CSS Properties panel in Illustrator to produce CSS code. Your developer creates an HTML page containing basic structure and content, then can incorporate the CSS code into an HTML page using a code editor such as Adobe Edge Code CC or a text editor such as BBEdit.


Adobe Dreamweaver CC

Serial: 1192-1642-4291-8842-9439-3703

Adobe could have rested on its laurels when updating Dreamweaver to its latest incarnation in the subscription-based Creative Cloud service as Dreamweaver CC. In its previous incarnation as Dreamweaver CS6, part of Adobe's Creative Suite 6, Adobe's advanced website editor already had little or no serious competition as a tool for creating and maintaining today's multiplatform websites. Dreamweaver CS6, for example, introduced ready-to-use "fluid grid" Web layouts that use CSS to reshape webpages automatically according to the screen size, making it easy to build a single site use with phones, tablets, and desktops without the complex CSS hand-coding previously required.

The new Dreamweaver CC enhances the fluid-grid feature by supporting HTML5 structural elements such as Sections and Articles. It also adds an equally effort-saving tool, a new CSS Designer that uses an interactive graphic interface for modifying CSS properties like shadows and curved corners, so you only need to click and drag to modify complex CSS code while seeing the results in real-time. Full support for Web-based fonts—downloaded from Adobe's servers while the browser loads a page—makes it easy to create eye-catching designs. Also, like the rest of the Creative Cloud suite, Dreamweaver also gets a simplified and more easily customizable interface, and works identically under both Windows and OS X.


Adobe Muse CC

Serial: 1598-1642-4291-8842-9439-3703

This is a major update for Muse and with it comes some highly requested features such as client side content management, contact forms that work with any hosting provider, and a layers panel to simplify the design process.  Adobe has also implemented Parallax Scrolling in Muse, which can be a great addition to any website when used properly.

Content management gives the user (or client) the ability to login to the back-end of a website, and make updates to the content (images / text) without having access to the Muse working file.  Simply enable the CMS features in the Site Properties, publish your site to Adobe's Business Catalyst platform and invite your client to edit the site. Site edits are made directly in the browser by selecting an element and modifying it's content.  When you've finished making in-browser edits simply click publish, and the update site is live.

This should make a ton of Muse users very happy.  Adobe has figured out how to make the Muse contact forms work with any hosting provider.  Now you can publish or upload your site to any hosting platform, and users can input form data and it will send directly to the email address you specify.


Adobe Premiere Pro CC

Serial: 1132-1642-4291-8842-9439-3703

With Apple’s Final Cut Pro going its own way, with a sleek and modern interface, and Avid’s curmudgeonly Media Composer still holding sway over traditional video editors, it was always going to be interesting to see which way Premiere Pro went with the new Creative Cloud version.

The most obvious change is that you are now leasing the software, and if you stop subscribing you can’t use it. The plus side is that, unless you're paying for Premiere Pro alone, you'll have access to After Effects CC, Photoshop CC and Illustrator CC. While the online cloud storage and sharing will have some merit, it’s the integration with Adobe Anywhere that has the biggest potential, enabling team members in different locations to work on the same project. Unfortunately, that doesn’t come with the Creative Cloud subscription, it’s extra, and you'll need your own hosting servers to put the production on. That’s also how Premiere differentiates between file types for editing. A project file is yours alone, a production file is for multiple users.

So, back to the original question, and Premiere has shuffled somewhat towards Media Composer. While Premiere could import its AAF files, they weren’t always that accurate. This has been improved for both importing and exporting, with better support for Media Composer’s native DNxHD media format. Another option is the ability to select specific sequences when exporting to AAF. So FCP owners don’t feel left out, there’s better compatibility with Final Cut projects as well. Helping things along are the built-in Messanine codecs; Adobe now has a team doing nothing else but working on codecs, so they will be 64-bit and multi-core threaded. As such, Sony XAVC and Panasonic AVC-Intro 200 are now supported. Of course, there’s still the 2K and 4K formats that Media Composer has trouble with – version 7 expected to address – which can be edited directly on the timeline.


Adobe After Effects CC

Serial: 1023-1642-4291-8842-9439-3703

Adobe has hit another home run with After Effects CC, expanding the software’s capabilities and refining the tools that professional filmmakers and motion-graphics artists depend on. Further enhancements in performance make After Effects CC a must-have partner for animators and video editors working with Premiere Pro CC.

New features such as a live 3D workflow with Cinema 4D Lite, now included with Creative Cloud, give motion-graphics artists and compositors much-needed integration with true 3D object animation.

In addition, several upgraded tools—including the Refine Edge Tool (for use with Roto Brush), Warp Stabilizer VFX, and Pixel Motion Blur—make the CC version a substantial revision for compositors and animators. Also new are the enhanced 3D Camera Tracker, bicubic sampling for layers, and the ability to send a comp to render through the Adobe Media Encoder, which allows you to continue working in After Effects while your project renders in the background.

For me, however, the real beauty of Adobe’s Creative Cloud is the ability to sync my user profiles and preferences between machines and to access my software and settings when I’m working remotely—simply by signing in with my Creative Cloud User ID.


Adobe Flash Professional CC

Serial: 1302-1642-4291-8842-9439-3703

Absent flashy, headline-grabbing new features, Adobe's updates for Flash Professional CC are simply improvements to the program's existing core features and functions. Alongside the app's enhanced user interface, Flash CC's new ability to export projects to HTML, to full HD video and audio, and to test animations directly via USB on mobile devices, are designed to benefit the vast majority of users.

Adobe has overhauled the familiar Flash user interface in this version. It is now a fashionable dark gray, which looks very professional (but can be switched back to light gray). The timeline and code editor have also been improved, alongside numerous other interface elements. A full screen editing mode, which shows only the canvas, hiding all the palettes, is a great addition.

The workspace canvas has also been adjusted. In the past, you were limited to a maximum size. That limitation is now gone, so you can import large graphics for a scrolling background—great for game developers creating a jump-n-run (side scroller) game.

Flash's new 64-bit architecture works well with late model MacBook laptops and will surely scream with the recently introduced Mac Pros. Adobe has rewritten most of Flash's code to convert it to a native cocoa application. For artists who like to work anywhere from a client's workspace to their home office, Flash CC automatically syncs preferences of your Flash installations through the Creative Cloud.


ESET NOD32 Antivirus 6
ESET Smart Security 6

Click on this LINK to get Usernames & Passwords

Most antivirus vendors come out with a new version each year. Some include the year in the product name, some increment the version number. A few, like Kaspersky and Symantec, have chosen to drop versioning altogether in favor of continuous updates. The developers at ESET have a simpler plan—they release a new version when it's ready, rather being driven by market forces. ESET NOD32 Antivirus 6 ($39.99 direct; $59.99 for three licenses) comes almost a year and a half after its previous version, and it comes with some interesting new features.

The organization of the main window has changed little since version 5, but ESET's cyborg mascot now graces the home screen. If all is well, a green status indicator reports that you have maximum protection. If there's a problem, you get a red status indicator and a link to the necessary fix. Simple!

Serials & Passwords


Adobe InDesign CS5

Serial: 1037-1000-0448-3419-1984-9230

Almost everything about InDesign CS5 is slicker, faster, and easier than in previous versions, starting with what would have seemed like no-brainers from the get-go: better object placement and manipulation. With Gridify, you can create grids of content while you're dragging a new frame: Just hit the Right Arrow key to add a new column and the Up Arrow key to add a new row, as many times as you need. (If you're using these for text, they'll even be automatically threaded together.) A sister feature, Live Distribute, lets you change the amount of space between objects without changing their size just by holding down the space bar as you drag. The Gap tool gives you fine-grained control over white space, letting you adjust it as you see fit without first having to crop or resize the objects it affects. If you turn on the new Auto Fit option, objects adjacent to that white space will resize smartly and automatically when you enlarge or shrink it.

Want to save time prettying up your pictures? InDesign CS5 has that market cornered-so to speak. With a couple of clicks, you can use Live Corner to change the radius and shape of an image's frame directly in the layout-either one at a time, or all at once. Should you change your mind, you can revert back to the original, full-size image in seconds without leaving the application. You can quickly reposition content within a frame by clicking and dragging the donut-shaped "Content Grabber" that appears when you move your mouse cursor into a frame, and a real-time crop preview shows you the final result ahead of time.

Adobe Illustrator CS5

Serial: 1034-1006-5290-0019-3090-0219

As the Creative Suite versions of the Adobe software mature, the list of new features for each program grows smaller, but the new features seem to be getting better. This release has some nice features, making this an important upgrade for those using Illustrator for more artistic purposes—of course, many of those features are useful for graphic designers, too. Here are the top new features for Illustrator CS5 (a.k.a. version 15).

The Perspective tools are a welcome, if not overdue, addition to the Adobe Illustrator (AI) feature set—one wonders if this feature was on the drawing board for some time or was the technology a pick-up from Adobe FreeHand MX.

Two new tools have been added: The Perspective Grid tool (Shift-P) and the Perspective Selection tool (Shift-V). The grid tools are easy to work with. The Perspective Grid tool adds a default grid to the page that can be visually modified. When a grid plane is active, many of the normal drawing tools work in perspective. When moving or scaling perspective objects, you must be sure to use the Perspective Selection tool to keep the object in perspective.

Adobe Flash CS5

Serial: 1302-1009-3696-1065-6850-7951

This time around, we have a unique situation where the Flash Professional (11) version has overtaken the Flash Player version (10.1). We are bound to expect more from the IDE than we are from the runtime. First of all, we have  support for the newest runtimes of the Flash Platform, Flash Player 10.1, Flash Lite 4, and AIR2.

Getting the obvious out of the way, Flash Professional CS5 supports creating iPhone applications, although this might now be a useless feature considering that such applications will no longer be allowed come iPhone OS4. It is important to know that before this feature was announced during Adobe MAX 2009, such a capability was not expected, and took most people by surprise. I highly doubt Apple would have taken its current step if this feature had never been publicly announced. While this feature does make Adobe Flash Professional CS5 a unified environment for generating applications which run on all mobiles, now it is simply a unified environment for generating applications which run on all mobiles except the iPhone. Needless to say even Flash CS5 is not doomed by Apple's move, forget about CS5 or Adobe.

Adobe Flash Catalyst CS5

Serial: 1395-4001-8359-3301-6882-0521

Flash, Adobe’s application for creating Web-based animations, has a new member to its product line with Flash Catalyst, new to the Creative Suite 5 (CS5).

The draw of Flash Catalyst CS5 over Flash Professional CS5 is that it can create interactive menus and websites without the need to write code. This makes it accessible to designers and artists who would rather focus on the imagery itself rather than the coding behind it.

Flash uses a type of code known as Actionscript. It can be used for embedding videos and audio into websites, creating interactive websites, making cartoons, and in the creation of some Web-based games. Even if you think you aren’t using Flash while browsing the Web, you probably do so regularly.

Flash Catalyst CS5 takes the technology a step further by allowing users to access the power of Flash without needing to master Actionscript code—although it still allows users to utilize the code if they’d like.

It should be noted, however, that the application is not really for creating things such as cartoons or games. It’s more for making interactive menus, buttons, and websites.

Adobe Contribute CS5

Serial: 1188-1001-8428-4361-2308-0839

The most welcome enhancement is subtle but important. Contribute’s built-in browser is now based on Webkit, the same rendering engine that powers Safari, Google Chrome, and iOS and Android mobile devices. This greatly improves the fidelity of viewing pages. Besides the built-in view, you can, as usual, preview with other browsers on your computer. But now you can open your page for preview in multiple browsers with a single action. Mac Contribute users are shortchanged here; on Windows, Contribute provides a three-pane view that simultaneously shows Webkit, Internet Explorer, and Firefox page renderings in the document window. Unfortunately, Contribute is not integrated with Adobe’s BrowserLab online Web page previewing service, as is Dreamweaver CS5.

Contribute can now edit the content of interactive interface elements, such as menus, text and image content areas, and animated panels, created by a designer in Dreamweaver, using Adobe’s Spry JavaScript framework. For example, the designer could drop a Spry menu widget into the page with boilerplate content, and Contribute users can rename, add, and subtract the menu items, and change the links to suit their own needs. Dreamweaver CS5 now supports inserting and modifying widgets from other JavaScript frameworks, such as jQuery, but Contribute does not.

Previously, the content of server-side includes (SSI) – files that reside on the server and are interpreted by it to place their content on multiple site pages (think page headers or footers) – were off limits. Contribute CS5 identifies SSI content and lets you edit them like any other page element.

Adobe Soundbooth CS5

Serial: 1332-1281-2401-7141-7851-9214

The replacement of Audition by Soundbooth in the CS3 iteration of Production Premium caused a minor outcry. But for most video editors, its audio cleaning abilities were actually easier to use and therefore it provided more of what they wanted and less of what they didn't. Keeping this theme of streamlined simplicity, with the CS5 version Adobe hasn't altered much, providing just a few usability tweaks.

Soundbooth already had support for multiple tracks, but CS5 makes them easier to handle. The global resizing ability facilitates working with lots of audio layers. Grabbing the margin between tracks and dragging it up and down contracts and expands their height, so you can get an overall view or focus on a specific waveform as required. Previously, you would have had to scroll up and down. There's also a new Split Clip command when you right-click, which cuts the audio file in two at the timeline marker.

Adobe Encore CS5

Serial: 1132-1127-8739-4724-1356-4304

Although video production is becoming media agnostic, and online distribution increasingly important, the ability to burn video to disc is still necessary on a regular basis. However, recognising the inexorable pull of the Web for video consumption, Adobe Encore CS5 is starting to provide features geared towards this method of delivery.

One of the key additions to Encore CS5 is therefore its ability to create Web DVDs with a search capability. These behave like DVDs or Blu-ray discs, except the interface and referenced media reside online instead of on a locally based piece of optical media, and Adobe's SWF file format is used.

As you author a disc, the text-based assets will be collected into a database and associated with the appropriate positions on the timeline. Text assets can include speech analysis, subtitles, or menu and button names. With its Shockwave-based format, Web DVDs can have a sleekly designed interface, and can call HD video for Internet streaming.

Adobe Dreamweaver CS5

Serial: 1192-1927-7762-6383-0202-0474

What new territory is there to explore with Web-design software? With so many of the essential foundations in place, there's not much justification for changing anything except the adding or improving of support for emerging technologies. The upside of this is that when you have a solid, thorough product, like Adobe's Dreamweaver, it's hard to go too far wrong with any developments—as the CS5 version ($399 list new, $199 list upgrade) proves. Most of its changes won't be visible to—or even detectable by—novices, but that's okay. What might be more of a problem with this version, the most complete and complex yet, is its suitability for novices at all.

This newbie unfriendliness is all the more disappointing given the raft of sincere attempts from Adobe to court just that group. For instance, it seems unlikely that anyone with any significant Web design experience will get too excited about the new CSS starter layouts included in Dreamweaver CS5. The choices Adobe gives you have been rewritten to be less structurally complicated and more instantly clear—bye bye, "lorem ipsum"—and feature an abundance of comments in the code itself to help guide those who need the assistance. This may be a smart way to go, but the rest of Dreamweaver is enormous and intimidating enough that anyone daring to brave it hopefully doesn't need quite that much hand-holding.

Adobe Fireworks CS5

Serial: 1193-1927-7762-6383-0202-0437

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, or you are not a Web designer or working in a related field, you cannot have missed the announcement of Adobe’s new Creative Suite 5 a few weeks ago. I have been using two products in the suite for a while now, including of course, Fireworks CS5. As is becoming a tradition here on pixelyzed.com, here are my thoughts on the new version as well as a few thoughts on the future…

The first thing you need to know about this version is that, unlike other applications in the CS5 Suites, Fireworks CS5 doesn’t have big shiny new features. As Fireworks Program Manager Bruce Bowman has stated in his “Introducing Adobe Fireworks CS5” article from mid-April, Fireworks CS5 is a release that focuses on “Stability, Performance and Polish”. It may not sound sexy but I assure you that the team delivered. Fireworks CS5 is by far the most stable version yet and many long-standing bugs have been addressed and, all in all, over 900 of them have been fixed!

The new features Fireworks CS5 does have may not be earth shattering but, they are welcome additions that will help many users in their everyday work. Some of the most noteworthy for me include:
  • Snap to pixel
  • Compound Shapes
  • Stroke Alignment
  • Adobe Swatch Exchange (ASE) file support
  • Many small improvements to Pages, Layers, Slices and more…
Refer to Bruce’s article above for a complete list. Like I said, nothing earth shattering here but these are welcome additions that bring a little of long overdue sophistication to Fireworks.

Adobe Creative Suite CS5


Often when software gets to be of a certain age—or a certain version number—it starts showing its wrinkles, even if it's dressed up in snazzy new clothes and sports some shiny new skills. Not so with Adobe's Creative Suite 5: Comprising over a dozen of the most powerful design and production apps on the market, all of which (except Acrobat) have received some degree of tweaking to improve the way they work alone and together, it looks as bright-eyed and optimistic as a kid on summer vacation. Windows and Mac users across a dizzying array of disciplines—from photo editing to publishing to film editing—will find something to help them, and will probably find something in CS5 they hadn't previously thought possible. With apps available individually or as part of several expansive collections, there's something for everyone who wants to do creative work faster, smarter, and better.

Overall, the changes made to the apps this time around eclipse those made in CS4, affecting the apps in ways both large and small. If you just upgraded when that version was released in late 2008, you probably won't need to do so again now, unless there's a feature you're simply dying for. Any way you look at it, that can be an expensive proposition. Check out the pricing table in Adobe Creative Suite 5 Unleashed for details on pricing for new purchases and upgrades.

ESET NOD32 Antivirus 4

Username: EAV-33774158
Key: 7arku5nrh3

As far as reputations go, ESET's NOD32 is practically unimpeachable. Version 4 of the popular and effective antivirus and antispyware builds on that rep, emphasizing its community-sourced ThreatSense for preventing attacks before they occur, a slick interface, and some of the highest independently-tested detection rates married to low rates of false positives.

Installation is clean and straightforward. Greatly improved from its humble beginnings as separate scanners that once littered the desktop, NOD32 can be toggled between standard features and more advanced options. Scans were neither blazingly fast nor excruciatingly slow, but the real-time defenses produced no noticeable drags on system performance. NOD32 has consistently scored near the top of several independent antivirus testing organization ratings for finding the most malware. An uninstallation option is available, requiring a reboot. However, we found residual system files and Registry settings that had to be deleted by hand.

If you're confident in your clicking habits, you might not necessarily miss the firewall and spam filter that ESET built into its Smart Security suite that's based on NOD32. Even without them, though, NOD32's speed, accuracy, and lack of impact on resources make it a must.

Camtasia Studio v.

Serial: ACRCA-53DCD-H89V8-888EL-7MCCA

When it comes to producing professional-looking movies and demos from your computer screen, TechSmith's Camtasia Studio continues to strike the right balance between a powerful toolset and ease of use. Version 7.1 adds even more features without making the app any more complex to use.

The feature-packed screencast app--which includes HD production settings--does have a learning curve, but the user-friendly interface and front-and-center icons for most-used tools go a long way toward lowering the intimidation factor a notch. Plus, TechSmith povides a useful online help center that includes several video tutorials that do a nice job walking users through the main functionality of the software.

Even better, when you first launch Camtasia Studio 7.1, you're greeted with an integrated tutorial video that helps get you acquainted with the software. The main window features a content area in the upper right that showcases a variety of options. Here, you can view the clip bin, access your content library, and tweak features such as callouts, zoom-n-pan, audio, and transitions. TechSmith populates a variety templates, music, and outros supplied from a third-party vendor known as Digital Juice, with additional content available for purchase.

As for feature updates, there are quite a few for such a relatively minor boost in version number. Camtasia now includes the ability to record system audio, as well as automatically resize windows during recording. Plus, you get the option to "smartfocus" on key frames and add close captions to your presentation. Additonally, the app offers speech-to-text with a voice training feature; auto output to more formats, such as the iPad; and the ability to overlay text and search within Flash video.

Beyond these additions, Camtasia Studio remains largely the same powerhouse for creating and producing screencasts for the Web, mobile phones, and DVDs. Well-rounded production settings continue to present presets for novices; additional applications, like an audio editor and the CD MenuMaker, round out the features.

AVG Internet Security 2011


Although AVG has flagged a little in the past few years, AVG Internet Security 2011 breathes some new life into one of the most popular security programs around with a shorter install, better usability, and faster scans.

The never-ending mantra chanted by security suite vendors sounds a lot like "faster scans, easier to use, better performance," and AVG has released a new version that it says accomplishes all three. Certainly, the scans are faster, it does install more quickly, and some tweaks to the interface have made it easier to use. However, changes to the engine that powers the detection and removal of threats has made it hard to come to a conclusion until independent labs return their efficacy results later this year.

ESET Smart Security 4

Number: TRIAL-38603418
Password: a25rs76sbt

ESET's Smart Security takes the structure built by their popular antivirus program NOD32 and adds on two wings: a personal firewall and a spam filter. Because much of Smart Security is the same as NOD32, this review will focus only on the firewall and spam filter.

The firewall's advanced settings are Smart Security's strength. Users can extensively customize the firewall's behavior, but don't have to. There are five default settings: automatic, automatic with user-defined exceptions, interactive, policy-based, and learning. You can set safe zones, configure remote desktop access, and manage intrusion detection, all from an uncluttered and easy-to-use menu. ESET chose usability over flashiness with its design, and users can jump between advanced options for any of Smart Security's tools from the same pane.

The antispam filter is similarly effective and configurable. The program can automatically mark outgoing addresses as safe, as well as detect global address books. Smart Security is surprisingly light, consuming around 50MB of RAM when running, and users should note that NOD32 has consistently scored near the top of several independent antivirus testing organization ratings for finding the most malware while encountering fewer false positives than most. Uninstallation is still tricky, unfortunately, leaving behind residual system files and Registry settings. Still, for getting all your security tools in one box, Smart Security is an effective and well-respected choice.

Avast Antivirus Professional Edition


An A-list antivirus, Avast Professional 5 provides steadfast protection and a robust selection of features. This version is the paid upgrade of the better-known Avast Free, and includes several additional features. It doesn't have all of Avast's available features, and that last batch has been saved for another paid upgrade, Avast Internet Security.

Avast Professional protects you with multiple guards. The antivirus, antispyware, and heuristics engines form a security core that also includes multiple real-time shields. The adjustable mail and file system shields join the pre-existing behavior, network, instant messaging, peer-to-peer (P2P), script, and Web shields. The behavioral shield is a common-sense feature, as security software publishers leverage their large user bases to detect threats early and warn others. Other new features include a silent/gaming mode, a testing sandbox, a firewall, antispam measures, and an "intelligent scanner" that only looks at changed files after establishing a baseline. Users should note that Avast Internet Security is the higher-end version of Avast's two paid programs. Avast Professional 5 includes the sandbox and script shield, but not the firewall or antispam features.

The biggest change in Avast 5, though, is the interface. Gone is the music player default look, which was skinnable but confusing, and in its place is a sleek UI that new users should find far more manageable. It's also Aero-friendly, with Explorer-style navigation buttons in case you can't remember where you tweaked a particular setting.

Avast has been reliably effective, and recent independent efficacy tests indicate that it can hold its own against Symantec's Norton and other popular brands. The price of this version is comparable to those, too, albeit slightly cheaper in some cases. If you want the extra protection offered here and value the brand name, Avast Professional 5 is worth the cost if you're buying for just one computer.

BS Player v.2.56


Several years ago, BS.Player used to be one of the better multicodec free video playback applications around. It then started to be bundled with adware, popularity dropped, and other programs took up its slack. BS.Player returns now with a free version, a new interface, and new jukebox capabilities for video and audio.

The interface loads as a refurbished skin of the original dashboard, and you can even reskin the it back to its original look. Track name, length, and time elapsed are front and center, and clicking on various features, such as the elapsed time, cycles through display options. Note that the Menu tab is hidden until you mouse over it. Player controls live at the bottom, and a tab of gray options on the right expands to reveal further options for Video, DVD, Audio, Radio, and TV playback. Three circles marked ML, PL, and EQ toggle the detached Media Library, Playlist, and Equalizer panes.

The installation process checks your system for missing codecs, although you have to opt out of a BS.Player toolbar. We had no issues drag-drop-and-playing various Real, Quicktime, AVI, WMV, and MPEG-formatted videos. Also note that the new Media Library window owes much to iTunes. There's not much you can do about that, since the included skins only change the look of the dashboard. BS.Player lacks modern ancillary media functions such as seeking out album art, but you can configure ID3 tags natively. If you're feeling nostalgic for a stable media player with a familiar name but updated look and features, you can be bullish on BS.Player.

Adobe Acrobat Reader Pro 9


The introduction of Adobe Acrobat 9 document-creation software could do for PDFs what the Jazz Singer did for movies. For the first time, PDFs can "talk" via embedded Flash video and Shockwave animation. In turn, users of Version 9 of the nearly ubiquitous and free Acrobat Reader will be able to watch movies, play interactive games, and run applications baked into PDFs without opening a third-party media player.

Among the many new, dynamic features to justify a business purchase of Acrobat 9 include dynamic maps, enhanced 256-bit encryption, and improved forms. On top of it all, Adobe offers an online community at Acrobat.com that facilitates online collaboration so users can store documents and literally work on the same page at the same time.

Serials & Passwords


  Microsoft Office 2007


Microsoft Office 2007 (officially called 2007 Microsoft Office System) is a Windows version of the Microsoft Office System, Microsoft's productivity suite. Formerly known as Office 12 in the initial stages of its beta cycle, it was released to volume license customers on November 30, 2006 and made available to retail customers on January 30, 2007. These are, respectively, the same dates Windows Vista was released to volume licensing and retail customers. Office 2007 contains a number of new features, the most notable of which is the entirely new graphical user interface called the Fluent User Interface (initially referred to as the Ribbon User Interface), replacing the menus and toolbars – which have been the cornerstone of Office since its inception – with a tabbed toolbar, known as the Ribbon. Office 2007 requires Windows XP with Service Pack 2 or higher, Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 or higher, Windows Vista or Windows 7. Office 2007 is the last version of Microsoft Office available for Windows XP Professional x64 Edition.

The 'Ribbon User Interface' is a task-oriented Graphical User Interface (GUI). It features a central menu button, widely known as the 'Office Button'. The Ribbon Interface has been improved in Microsoft Office 2010.

Office 2007 also includes new applications and server-side tools. Chief among these is Groove, a collaboration and communication suite for smaller businesses, which was originally developed by Groove Networks before being acquired by Microsoft in 2005. Also included is Office SharePoint Server 2007, a major revision to the server platform for Office applications, which supports "Excel Services", a client-server architecture for supporting Excel workbooks that are shared in real time between multiple machines, and are also viewable and editable through a web page.

Microsoft FrontPage has been removed from the Office suite entirely. It has been replaced by Microsoft Office SharePoint Designer, which is aimed towards development of SharePoint portals. Its designer-oriented counterpart Microsoft Expression Web is targeted for general web development. However, neither application has been included in Office 2007.

Speech recognition and handwriting recognition are now part of Windows Vista. Speech and ink components have been removed from Office 2007. Handwriting and speech recognition work with Office 2007 only on Windows Vista or Windows XP Tablet PC Edition. However, XP users can use an earlier version of Office to use speech recognition.

According to Forrester Research, as of May 2010, Microsoft Office 2007 is used in 81% of enterprises.

TuneUp Utilities 2010


TuneUp Utilities doesn’t really require any introduction. It’s one of the most popular PC optimization application suite, that does a comprehensive job of fine tuning your computer to make your PC runs faster and stable. It has everything in one application, which allows you to access a huge load of Windows maintenance, repair, optimization and customization tools, all at your fingertips. Therefore, you don’t need to run dozens of different utilities just to perform all those tasks when TuneUp Utilities alone can handle it all. :-)

Recently, TuneUp has released the latest version of TuneUp Utilities 2010 with full Windows 7 support. The latest TuneUp Utilities 2010 comes with a number of new features
and enhancements of its tools, making PC maintenance more convenient for both novice and professional computer users. Most notable features are the new Turbo Mode and Live Optimization.

Medal of Honor 2010

Key 1: Herakles
Key 2: mango
Key 3: 29784266

People who wave placards and hold symbolic burnings are upset about Medal Of Honor, but they really needn’t be. EA’s reboot of the war-themed shooter sees the series evacuated out of World War II and redeployed into the present-day conflict in Afghanistan. Much pre-emptive fury has been directed at the prospect of playing a Taliban soldier in multiplayer - claiming offence to Our Boys. Detractors are late to that party, given that Nazis and non-specific terrorist organisations have long since been considered fair game, but the real kicker for EA is that it’s made such an obvious effort to revere the soldiers the game is now accused of insulting.

In its campaign mode, MOH is almost a paean to the decency of US military personnel - even if it pointedly saves its admiration for the troops on the ground rather than those commanding the forces from afar. In fact, it is so keen to exonerate the soldiers themselves, who all operate with the utmost virtue, that it comes across with the forceful naivety of propaganda. This is not the sort of war in which US air support blithely shreds civilian vehicles or in which US troops keep as mementos body parts of murdered Afghans. And by focusing on an early part of the conflict, this is not the sort of war in which enemies shelter beneath civilians or use IEDs to pick away at the numbers and sanity of a beleaguered occupying force. This is not, in other words, really the sort of war being currently fought.

Whatever its bias or excisions, MOH rejects the sort of gung-ho globetrotting baloney seen in Modern Warfare, and makes an honest attempt not to trivialise the lives of US soldiers, creating an air of sober authenticity which is unusual among shooters. It is perhaps a small watershed - bringing some degree of credible soldierly tactics to what is otherwise blockbuster entertainment. While it’s possible to run and gun, the game impresses upon you the importance of ‘no movement without fire’, maintaining ‘noise discipline’, and avoiding silhouetting yourself against the sky.

Terms like ‘danger close’ are more than just fetishistic military gabble - many of the game’s set-pieces involve marking targets for artillery and air support - something which the troops are not keen to do while standing nearby. But MOH’s major triumph is in describing, albeit in airport-paperback terms, how different branches of the military work together. Control zips between different members of the armed forces like a relay race - SEALs perform subversion and reconnaissance behind enemy lines, while Tier 1 operators mark and snipe embedded mortar positions, and the Rangers plough headlong into enemy forces with the support of overwhelming air power.

Though it paints a broad picture of an invasion force conducting itself with appropriate military rigour, this is still a heavily scripted, linear shooting gallery in which hordes of enemies bundle towards you without any thought of of self-preservation. But the game turns this crude tenet to its advantage in missions where retreat becomes essential; several key moments deal in simple survival, as the numbers of enemies overwhelm, whittling down and working around your remaining cover.

Avast 5.0


Prague-based ALWIL Software has offered "Free antivirus for everyone" for what seems like forever. The company was founded in 1991 and their core product dates back to 1988. With around 100 million users they protect a substantial fraction of all consumer PCs worldwide. Due to a blip in the release schedule, I wound up previewing the beta last November. Now available for all, avast! Free Antivirus 5.0 (free, direct) has a totally new appearance and offers significantly enhanced protection against malware. Note: Fans of the avast! free antivirus offering can now get the same protection in a streamlined for-pay suite. Check out our review of avast! Internet Security 5.0.
Buzz up!on Yahoo!

The previous avast! antivirus 4.8 Home Edition looked more like a media player utility than an antivirus app. If that wasn't strange enough, the included "skins" feature could make it look like just about anything. With version 5.0 avast! gets a more standard rectangular appearance. You can't disguise it as a Star Trek instrument panel any more, but finding features is a lot easier.

Microsoft Office 2010


Like Windows 7, Microsoft Office 2010 has been available in beta so long and so publicly (and has run so reliably) that the actual launch might almost seem an anti-climax.

Around 7.5 million people have downloaded various versions of it, and the Office team has had 650,000 individual feedback reports - and those have changed things, particularly in Outlook and OneNote.

Office 2010's UK release date is 12 May (although large businesses and developers can get Office Standard and Professional Plus 2010 already) and three versions, Office Home and Student 2010, Office Home and Business 2010, and Office Professional 2010, will be in the shops in June.

Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010



Deamon Tools Pro


Daemon Tools Pro is the most advanced and capable virtual optical drive software on the market - for non-copy-protected discs.

The Lite version of Daemon Tools is a great little freebie for mounting ISO and other images as virtual CD/DVD drives, but the Pro Advanced and Pro Standard versions of Daemon Tools Pro offer considerably more functionality. If you deal with CD/DVD/Blu-ray images on a regular basis, they just might be worth the 25 or 40 euros they'll set you back.

The first thing you'll notice about either Daemon Tools Pro version is that there's a straightforward, easy-to-use GUI--no command line visits for advanced features as there are with Lite. Both Pro Standard and Advanced also support more virtual devices: 16 and 32 drives respectively, and Advanced offers 2 virtual IDE devices in addition to the Lite and Standard version's SCSI devices. Both Pro versions also let you mount the contents of an optical disc to an NTFS folder (instead of a drive) as well as letting you edit images (add, delete files, etc.).

Both the Standard and Advanced versions of Daemon Tools Pro offer cataloging and creation of image files, but Advanced takes things one step further with conversion between various image types. All versions support a number of file formats: plain and compressed ISO files and media descriptor (MDS), for starters, as well as the formats belonging to Blindwrite, Blindread, Nero, CloneCD, DiskJuggler, and InstantCD/DVD images.

The only real negative to Daemon Tools Pro is that neither the Advanced nor the Standard versions (nor the free Lite, of course) handle copy-protected discs.

DT Pro Standard and Advanced are included in the same download. You may choose which the one you wish to try at install time via a drop-down menu.


Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Plus



Kaspersky Internet Security 2011

Name: ARN
Company: Team ARN 
Serial: CCM87001

It's only July, but our forward-thinking comrades at Kaspersky Lab have already delivered their 2011 internet security suite. Expectations are high, as Kaspersky was once a regular PC Pro recommendation, but in the past 18 months it's struggled to compete with stellar detection rates from Avira and Norton.

At first glance, that hasn't changed: from a selection of more than 300 current malware samples, Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 (KIS 2011) positively identified an impressive 96%, but A-List champ Norton 2010 hit 99%, with Avira just a whisker behind on 98%.

Yet Kaspersky's 2011 suite has a new ace up its sleeve. Although it didn't recognise all of our samples, it noted that those it didn't know were unsigned and not commonly found on other Kaspersky subscribers' PCs, and quietly flagged them as suspicious. When we actually tried to run them, and they started trying to dig their way into our system settings, the software rightly intervened and raised the alarm. It's a similar approach to the Insight and SONAR 2 systems found in Norton Internet Security 2010, but there's no shame in that: arguably, it gives more credibility than a perfect detection score would.

Another new feature is "Safe Run for Websites", which builds on the sandboxing system for applications that first appeared in the 2010 suite. Now you can run your browser in a protected mode - with a conspicuous green border - that prevents rogue processes from snooping on its traffic and cached data. Tell the software the URL of your bank and it will automatically open a "safe" browser whenever you go there.


Microsoft Office 2007 (All versions)



Adobe Photoshop CS5


After 9.5 versions of Photoshop (Windows wasn’t supported until PS 2.5) it’s easy to become jaded about Adobe’s stalwart photo editor. Fortunately, Photoshop CS5 gives us something to get worked up about all over again.

Packing more than 250 new features, Photoshop CS5 is an amazing upgrade capable of performing a wide range of tasks we’ve never seen before, while simultaneously simplifying the trademark tasks we’ve come to know and love.

Case in point: the Content Aware Fill tool, a hybrid between the Clone Stamp tool and the Patch tool, that allows users to selectively remove any part of an image and replace it with a suitable, blendable background. Using a newly developed algorithm that can stitch together multiple parts of a surrounding background image, Adobe has developed a groundbreaking tool that can make objects in an image seemingly disappear into thin air. When it works, it’s truly a sight to behold.

Activation Nero 10 Multimedia Suite 10


The latest version of Nero strays from the software's disc-burning roots, putting more emphasis on consumer media functions. Disc burning has become a commodity, so Nero has turned toward helping consumers manage and edit their photos, music, and video. The new suite is divided into three major pieces that Nero's research says match what consumers want in a multimedia package: Vision Xtra (the new video- and photo-editing and organizing application), Burning ROM (traditional disc-burning software), and BackItUp & Burn (a local- and online-backup solution). The Xtra interface is super slick, and with this version Nero bests all the media suite competition in video editing.

FiFa 2011


In football, sometimes it's not about the big signings or the headline additions. Take Ferguson's United; at its spine are the same core players that have helped the club dominate domestic football for the best part of a decade, and no number of star signings elsewhere in Manchester look likely to change that. EA Sports' FIFA 11 is a similar proposition; there are no grandstand new features to dazzle and no major upheavals to the existing formula, but that doesn't stop it from being the best FIFA yet and by extension perhaps the best football game there's ever been.

PES 2011


Pro Evolution Soccer 2011 reinvigorates the series with the most advanced set of improved gameplay additions, control options and to catch up with the evolution of the real-life soccer. Central to its total freedom of play, the game introduces a power bar for each player that allows the user to determine the exact strength and placement of every pass and shot. Balls can now be spread absolutely anywhere with surgical precision, with long balls into space, short passes to feet, and intricate one-twos allowing the player to dictate play and control the tempo of a match.

This freedom of play is also extended via AI routines designed to place every move and decision into the player's hands. No longer will assisted AI intervene during matches; users will now need to sense and react to threats intuitively as opposed to chasing the ball; and passes will not automatically reach the nearest player. Instead, routines facilitate complete control both of the player and their chosen actions in every respect to give the player sublime control over every movement.
