Checksum Control Portable
Check the validity of your downloads with Checksum Control Portable

Viruses are a serious and ever-growing problem for anyone that uses the internet, and infected downloads are a common means of delivering viruses to unsuspecting users. One way to check whether the file you are downloading is what it claims to be is to make use of checksum values using a wizard led interface.

SFV and MD5 checksums are supported, and these are unique numbers that can be generated for any file that is available. Web sites will often published the checksum values for files they host so they users can check that the value is the same once the file has been downloaded - in this way it is possible to determine whether or not the file has been interfered with in any way.

Checksum Control Portable can be installed on your computer like any other app, but it can also be added to a USB drive like many other portable apps so you can easily transport it and use it on other computers. The easy to follow wizard interface make it very simple to both check and create checksums in just a few steps.

When creating a checksum, filenames can be automatically generated from the files you are working with, or you can opt to use your own naming scheme. Comments can be optionally added to the checksums you create, and the process of verifying files you have downloaded against their checksum values is equally simple.


This isn't a tool for everyone, but for anyone who is ultra-security conscious, it is a valuable utility to add to your USB drive

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.7

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 2.12.7 brings:

• Starred Messages
