Save big on these holiday software deals

It’s that time of the year where it’s a great time to pick up a software bargain. Through December and the Christmas holiday season, the Downloadcrew Software Store has various software deals that are worth some consideration. Best of all, the Downloadcrew “Giveaway” site returns this Christmas, with five superb exclusive full software giveaway offers, for everyone.

You may have picked up a brand new Windows 8 computer during the festive season. If so, the first thing you’ll want to do is pick up a security suite to keep your system secure. The Downloadcrew Software Store is packed full of security offers from Bitdefender, AVG, Kaspersky, Avira and other brands.

Bitdefender

Let’s start with Bitdefender. Bitdefender Windows 8 Security is the company’s brand new offering, and can be yours for $19.95, 67 percent off MSRP. There’s a saving of 63 percent off Bitdefender Total Security 2013 [3-PC] which includes a strong antivirus engine, intelligent two-way firewall, capable spam filter -- all for just $29.95. If you want to keep your computer safe for even less, look no further than Bitdefender Internet Security 2013 [1-PC] which still packs a punch for just $14.99 saving you 70% off the MSRP.

Many homes have more than one computer and keeping them all protected can get expensive. However, if you invest in Bitdefender Internet Security 2013 [3-PC] can be used to ensure the safety of three PCs for just $29.95. Every computer should have at least an antivirus tool installed, and it’s hard to find something that’s better value than Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2013 [1-PC] which costs just $5.95 with a massive reduction of 85 percent.

AVG

You’ll also find the latest 2013 versions of the most popular security tools including AVG Anti-Virus 2013. This industry standard antivirus tool is available for the massively discounted price of $9.95 – that’s a colossal 75 percent off the MSRP. For a more complete security solution, take a look at AVG Internet Security 2013 which includes an added firewall, spam filter and more – all for just $17.99 (or a 67-percent discount). The most complete security package comes in the form of AVG Premium Security 2013 Complete Bundle, which includes four separate applications worth a total of $130 -- but you can buy the collection at a generous 69-percent discount for just $39.95.

Avira has finally updated their 2013 range so it’s Windows 8 compatible. Within the store, you can pick up Avira Internet Security 2013 [3-PC] for only $29.99, a saving of 67 percent from the MSRP. Avira Internet Security 2013 [1-PC] is yours for only $25.99, or 57 percent off MSRP. If you prefer a lighter anti-virus tool, take a look at Avira Antivirus Premium 2013 [3-PC], 47 percent off MSRP, at $24.99. There’s also a 1-PC version, which is yours for $19.99.

Kaspersky

Kaspersky produces security software that performs reliably and consistently.

Store highlights include the multi-device Kaspersky ONE, which will enable you to support three different devices (three PCs, two PCs and a Mac or, perhaps, two PCs and one Android device. The choice is yours). Available for only $24.95, 69 percent off MSRP. Kaspersky Internet Security 2013 starts at $19.95 or 67 percent off MSRP.

Kaspersky develop a powerful security suite for Mac users, including Kaspersky Security for Mac 2013, which is only $39.95, 33 percent off MSRP.

System maintenance and PC optimization tools help keep your brand new system in check while you continue to enjoy using your PC. System maintenance tools enable you to remove unwanted startup items, erase clutter and temporary files, personalize your computer and much more.

Our first recommendation is TuneUp Utilities 2013. You can save 50% from TuneUp Utilities 2013 [3-PC], ideal for installing on three home computers. If you have a single PC, save even more with TuneUp Utilities 2013 [1-PC]. There is also TuneUp Utilities 2013 [UPGRADE] for existing users to upgrade, at a significant discount. Another recommended maintenance tool is AVG PC TuneUp 2013, effectively a re-branded TuneUp Utilities, which helps you to eke extra performance from your machine. This great utility costs as mere $12.99, or a saving of 68% off the MSRP. Auslogics Boostspeed 5 is also worth considering for $19.95, 60 percent off MSRP, as is IObit Advanced SystemCare PRO v6 [3-PC] is another great all-round system maintenance suite, available for only $14.99 or 62 percent off MSRP. You can move up to IObit Advanced SystemCare 6 Ultimate, which also packs two additional anti-malware scanners, yours for only $18.99, again 63 percent off MSRP.

Everyone needs a backup tool, whether this is to store important files in a secure location or to make a 1:1 copy of your hard drive, to safeguard against system failure. There are few better backup tools than True Image 2013 by Acronis (Acronis True Image 2013), available for only $29.99, which is currently 40 percent off MSRP.
