The brand-new Ashampoo ClipFinder HD gives you web video the way it should be. Search in up to fifteen video portals at once or in selected portals, view videos directly and convert and save them to your hard disk with a single click.

Nothing makes finding, viewing, saving and managing web videos easier. And Ashampoo ClipFinder HD isn’t just better, it’s also still completely free. CNET’s reviewers called the original ClipFinder “a breath of fresh air” among programs of this type and the new ClipFinder HD is even better and more powerful.

FREE Firewall

Ashampoo’s New FREE Firewall:

You probably know that you need a firewall program to use the Internet safely. In addition to protecting you against attacks from the Internet, a good firewall will also tell you when programs installed on your computer are trying to phone home and enable you to prevent them from doing it.

This is something that Windows® own firewall doesn’t do, and it’s essential for identifying and stopping the activities of many malicious virus and spyware programs. For example, this enables you to prevent your computer from being turned into a “zombie” controlled by spammers or destructive hackers.

Internet Accelerator

Ashampoo’s FREE Internet Accelerator 2:

Many windows settings work in harmony in order to get the best out of an available internet connection. Unfortunately, the factory design of these settings means that they are often not optimised for a particular connection type, or they are adjusted by a newly installed software product unasked. The consequences are plain to see: the computer can’t get the best out of your internet connection. As a user, this means you have to wait longer until web pages have loaded in your browser or until internet downloads are finished.

For beginners and for most professionals, it simply isn’t possible to find the settings necessary for the fine tuning of the internet in the registry – let alone to edit them. No problem: the Ashampoo Internet Accelerator will be pleased to complete this job for you!

Magical Optimiser

Ashampoo’s FREE Magical Optimizer:

It’s a fact!

Over time, all PCs become cluttered with unnecessary Internet files and invalid entries are injected into system registry. If not maintained, computer performance significantly deteriorates over time.

Thankfully, Ashampoo Magical Optimizer can reclaim this lost performance. A single mouse click of the mouse is all that’s needed to begin an onslaught of cleaning – deep within the heart of the PC.

Magical Snap

Ashampoo’s FREE Magical Snap:

You have to see it to believe it – graphics editing has never been this easy!

Anybody can now make pro-quality screenshots that look like they were finished by a graphics designer. Most of the time you won’t even need to do any editing at all, because the program can apply effects like drop shadows and torn paper edges to produce stylish results on the fly.

After you capture the screenshot the new editing interface opens automatically. If you’re satisfied with the results you just select one of the one-click tools to save your screenshot, send it by email, copy it or print it.
