Comodo Antivirus v8.4
Detect, block and remove malware

Comodo Antivirus is a powerful antivirus tool that uses multiple layers of protection to keep your PC malware-free.

A behavioural scanning system watches running processes for suspect behaviour, for example, uncovering even zero-day threats before they can cause any damage.

Cloud-based whitelisting and detection systems improve accuracy, cut false positives, and deliver a faster response to new malware.

Back on your own PC, Comodo's Defense+ technology alerts you to applications that behave suspiciously. And if you download a program which you're not entirely sure is safe, then using Comodo's Sandbox allows you to run it in an isolated environment, where it won't be able to affect the rest of your PC.

Of course you also get a strong core antivirus engine, which scans all the files you access to detect and remove incoming threats. Explorer integration allows you to scan selected files, folders or entire drives from a right-click menu option, while the scheduler runs regular scans, even when you're not around.

New features this time include an auto-sandboxing policy, which by default keeps dubious programs isolated from your PC.

If this doesn't suit your needs, no problem: it's now possible to set up your own auto-sandboxing rules, using parameters like file reputation and origin.

Comodo Antivirus 8 now takes advantage of hardware virtualisation when available, allowing the program to operate at the hypervisor level.

An improved Viruscope makes it easier to monitor your system for unwanted applications.

Comodo Antivirus logs events to the Windows Event Logs, useful when you're troubleshooting.

This all comes packaged in a flat-look interface, which has also been redesigned to simplify navigation.

What's new in 8.4?

- New. Extended "File Downloaders" file group.
- New. Website Filtering browser signatures have become updatable.
- Improved. Yahoo! installation offer is not shown during CIS/CAV paid packages' updates anymore.
- Improved. 'Browser Protection' feature is enabled by default upon clean install
​- Fixed. Google Chrome and Internet Explorer crash upon closing when run in Sandbox

Verdict:

Comodo Antivirus is a powerful antivirus tool, highly configurable and with plenty of interesting features. You won't necessarily be able to get by with the default settings, though - this isn't an "install and forget" program. You'll need to monitor closely what the program is doing to get the best results, so it's really not for security beginners

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.5

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.
