Check files/ downloads/ processes with VirusTotal

Winja is a free tool for checking files, downloads and running processes with VirusTotal.

A simple opening menu displays three main options. "Browse for file" uploads the file you specify to VirusTotal; Download and Scan downloads a file, then checks it with VirusTotal; and Quick Process Scan lists running processes and checks the one you specify.

VirusTotal checks the file against 55-60 of the top antivirus engines, and Winja displays its score (infected/total, such as 5/58) in a separate pop-up.

If you need to know more, a Session Scan Results tab displays the verdict of each individual antivirus engine.

Winja also provides four extra system security tools of its own.

Process Viewer is an expanded task manager, listing running processes in a tree, detailing loaded modules, opened files, and more.

Task Scheduler lists your Windows scheduled tasks, and provides some basic right-click tools (Check with VirusTotal, Disable, Delete).

Windows Startup lists your startup programs. Again, you can delete or disable selected items, or submit them to VirusTotal.

Registered Services is more basic, essentially just a simple Windows Services viewer. There's an option to scan a service with VirusTotal, but you can't stop, delete or otherwise tweak it.


Winja's interface is occasionally annoying. To check a file, for instance, you click a button in one window, specify the suspect file in a dialog box, watch the upload process in a different tab, then have to look at a toast notification to see the overall score, and click yet another tab for the details. This needs to be streamlined a little (or, preferably, a lot).

"Quick Process Scan" needs the ability to scan all your running processes, too.

Still, there's nothing here that isn't fixable, and for a very first release, Winja seems promising.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.110

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 2.18.110 

• It’s now easier to start group voice and video calls. Just tap the call button in groups or select "New group call" when starting a new call in the calls tab. Group calls support up to 4 participants.
