XMedia Recode XMedia Recode

Excellent 5 stars
I've used this for several years. It's one of the few which has the "streaming fast start" option when encoding MP4. That is essential if you're making files for use on websites, otherwise the video won't start playing until the entire file has downloaded. The "CPU Priority" setting is another bonus. So XMedia Recode can be left chugging away encoding without bringing other activities on the PC to a standstill. Many thanks to the author. Price: Free

360 Total Security Essential 360 Total Security Essential

Unfortunately on the way to being bloated 3 stars
I have used 360 Total Security for a year or two. It was the fastest and least obstructive in my opinion. Unfortunately now it's beginning to feel like a virus itself and is well on the road to being bloated. I'm sure other readers will be oh so familiar with this if they've used anti-virus software over the years! For example, I have Auto Update turned off but, looking at the Windows Task Manager, I see that the program hogs the CPU for several minutes after booting up. I don't know what it can be doing for all that time as everything else has long since finished loading and it delays me starting work effectively. If you exit the program completely (supposedly) the Task Manager shows QHActiveDefense.exe and QHWatchdog.exe still running and ending the processes is "denied." The interface looks simple and as if it would be fast but seems sluggish. Sometimes a "quick scan" seems to take forever to cancel. I have also had a number of what seem to be false positive malware alerts. Price: Free
