ZHPCleaner 2018
Detect and remove browser hijackers, adware, more

ZHPCleaner is a free portable tool which can detect and remove adware, browser hijackers, some toolbars and more.

The program is very convenient to use. There's no installation, it doesn't even arrive in a ZIP file, you just download, run and hit "Scan".

You might see occasional dialogs and prompts during the scan, and these aren't always straightforward. "Have you installed this server?", the program asked, displaying a couple of IP addresses we didn't recognise. What server? ZHPCleaner didn't explain, so we clicked "No" and waited to see what would happen.

Once the scan completes, the program becomes more straightforward. There are lists of "problem" settings and possible adware traces, all checked by default, but you're free to browse and clear anything you'd like to keep. (Our "Server" turned out to be the DNS servers of an uninstalled VPN service, so we allowed them to be deleted.)

Hit the "Repair" button when you're ready and ZHPCleaner cleans any selected settings or traces, prompting you to reboot to ensure any active adware is removed.

Verdict:

ZHPCleaner seems to be a thorough PC cleaner which delves deep into your Registry and browser settings, locating and removing many signs of trouble. But beware, as with all similar tools there's a possibility of accidentally wiping something important. Be sure to check exactly what the program is going to do before you click "Repair", and don't use ZHPCleaner anywhere that isn't fully backed-up.

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
