Hitman Pro 3 (64-bit)
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

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
