IObit Malware Fighter 3.0.2.29
Keep your PC spyware-free

IObit Malware Fighter is a straightforward antispyware tool that can protect your PC in several different ways.

For example, you can run an on-demand scan to look for spyware, adware, trojans, bots, and other threats that your regular antivirus software might have missed. The "Smart Scan" checks only the most critical areas of your PC, and runs fairly quickly (around 7 minutes on our test PC); you can run a complete system scan if you prefer, while the "Custom Scan" allows you to choose exactly what you'd like the program to examine.

And Malware Fighter also includes real-time protection in the shape of 5 guards, which variously monitor your startup programs, browser settings, cookies, the web pages you view, and the files you access.

Our first brief tests left some questions over the program's accuracy, with Malware Fighter missing a real threat, and incorrectly warning us of two entirely safe files. And it's also a little short on features. If you want scheduled scans, protection for USB viruses, process scanning or technical support then you'll need to upgrade to Malware Fighter Pro, currently available for $19.95 a year.

Note that IObit Malware Fighter works as freeware unless you choose to upgrade to Pro.

v3 is a major update and adds these features/changes:

+ Expanded database supports removing over 1,000,000 latest malware.
+ New generation engine provides higher detection and more thorough cleanup.
+ New Security Guard provides more intelligent and comprehensive protection.
+ New Browser Protect protects your homepage, search engine, online surfing and privacy data.
+ New Plugin / Toolbar Cleaner removes malicious browser plugins & toolbars much easily.
+ New Anti-Tracking clears harmful tracking data safely.
+ New DNS Protect effectively protects your DNS from malicious modification.
+ New Silent Mode provides undisrupted environment and reduces resource consumption.
+ Supported Windows 10 Technical Preview.

Verdict:

While it's lightweight, fast and easy to use, IObit Malware Fighter is just a little too limited for our liking. There are better free antivirus tools around.

This information is not true.

This information is not true. Here is a much older version, if it is written.
This link is for v2.0.0.202, but latest is v2.0.0.204
That version, which is written here - not yet managed to find.

Hi Kaluju, the installer is v2.0.0.204, the actual build itself is 2.0.1.6. Confusing, we know. But it's up-to-date.

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.
