Add an extra antivirus detection layer to your PC

Hitman Pro 3 is what the authors call a "second opinion malware scanner", a security tool you can use alongside your existing antivirus package to improve security, without causing any conflicts.

The program scans your PC quickly, looking for suspicious files. Anything that appears dubious is referred to the Hitman Pro "Scan Cloud", and if the file isn't recognised, then it's uploaded, and scanned using a number of antivirus programs from 5 separate vendors. As we write, these are Prevx, Dr.Web, G Data, IKARUS and Emsisoft.

The verdict is then passed back to you, and if it's bad news, the infection will be quarantined right away.

It's an interesting approach, which should help pick up even the very latest threats while also keeping false positives to a minimum. And that's not all.

A particular advantage of Hitman Pro 3 is that it doesn't have to be installed, which immediately works to minimise conflicts. Just copy the program to a USB flash drive and use it whenever necessary.

And the program comes with an unrestricted free 30-day trial, so if you think your PC may have picked up something unpleasant then now is the perfect time to test it: just download Hitman Pro 3, run it, and see what the program can do for you.

Verdict:

An intelligent security tool that uses multiple antivirus engines to improve its accuracy

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
