RogueKiller
Quickly detect and remove malicious processes (and a few others, probably)

RogueKiller is a tool which aims to help you to detect and remove malware from your PC.

The program doesn't rely on virus signatures, which is good for detecting the latest threats.

It's also easy to use: just click Scan and wait. (You may have to wait a while, though, as there's no "quick scan" in the free build - it's all or nothing).

The final report includes a great deal of useful information on possibly dubious startup programs, HOSTS file lines, proxy and DNS settings, drivers, shortcuts, MBR code and more.

The most dangerous threats are highlighted by default, so you could just click Delete and clean them all at once.

There's always the risk of legitimate software being flagged as malicious, though, so we'd recommend you check the report carefully, make sure you understand exactly what it's going to do.

Version 12.9.7 (see entire changelog):

- Added detections
- Updated translations

Verdict:

RogueKiller is a powerful malware hunter which uses a wide range of technologies to detect threats. The lack of a "quick scan" is going to be a problem sometimes, but if you mostly just need an emergency "second opinion" scanner it should be a great choice.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.23

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.2?

- You can now tap send on messages when you don't have a connection. Messages will be queued up and sent when your phone regains a connection. 
- Redesigned storage usage screen lets you manage your phone's storage space by clearing certain message types, like videos, from specific chats (Settings -- Data and Storage Usage -- Storage Usage).
- Send up to 30 photo or videos at once now.
