Privatefirewall 7.0
Keep your PC secure with this combination firewall, system monitor and intrusion detection system

Privatefirewall is a lightweight firewall that not only protects you against network attacks, but includes some antivirus capabilities, too.

Install the program and it will immediately go to work, monitoring any applications that are making internet connections. Safe programs are allowed to run as usual, so you won't be hassled with pop-up alerts: Privatefirewall only steps in if it detects malware-like behaviour, or suspicious incoming network packets.

Privatefirewall also keeps an eye on programs that try to modify key Registry areas, manipulate other processes, access protected file objects, or engage in similar virus-like activities, displaying a warning and (if possible) quarantining the suspect process so it can't cause any further damage.

And if you simply want to find out how your internet and network connections are being used right now, then you'll appreciate the enormous amount of status information available via the Privatefirewall console: the processes that are running right now, the details of every open internet connection, logs of your recent connection history, and more.

Verdict:

An easy-to-use firewall with some interesting security extras

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

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 2.19.61
