ChicaPC-Shield 1.75.0.1300
ChicaPC-Shield can spot and remove malware other tools miss.

Sometimes, protecting your computer can feel like a full-time job. You need to arm yourself with all kinds of security software, some of which can feel quite intimidating to use. And even if you have one anti-malware tool installed, you can't necessarily rely on it to spot and catch all infections that attempt to make their way on to your PC.

It's accepted that you cannot have two competing security products installed at the same time. This is because both are always vigilant, scanning for threats using real-time protection engines. It's these engines that can conflict with each other, bringing your system grinding to a halt.

ChicaPC-Shield is designed to run alongside an existing security suite. The free version offers no real-time protection, but can be used to scan for (and remove) threats. This makes it an excellent backup to your existing security suite. If you fear an infection, but your security tool is adamant your computer is clean, then ChicaPC-Shield can be used to perform a simple scan of your hard drive to either back up your security software's diagnosis or root out an infection the original missed.

ChicaPC-Shield is aimed firmly at the female PC user, but is suitable for all users if you're comfortable with the slightly feminine styling. Look closely and you'll see it's actually a re-branded version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware, which means it enjoys a deserved reputation for being able to spot (and remove) infections other tools will miss. However, there's no point in installing ChicaPC-Shield alongside it if it's already on your computer.

Should you be impressed with the program's capabilities, you can upgrade to the paid-for version by clicking Purchase and enjoy real-time protection (including automatic blocking of dangerous websites) for $24.95 per year – note that ChicaPC-Shield is designed to work alongside your existing anti-malware software, so do not remove it should you upgrade.

Verdict:

Adds more protection to your computer, and could catch threats your existing security software misses.

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.
