ZoneAlarm Extreme Security
Get antivirus, firewall, antispam, antiphishing, identity theft protection and more from a single powerful security suite

ZoneAlarm Extreme Security is, as you might expect from the "Extreme" tag, an unusually full-featured security suite.

It includes an excellent firewall, of course, which manages to control your applications without the hassle of endless alerts. The suite's strong on-demand and real-time antivirus protection is based on highly-rated Kaspersky technology, and the spam filter protects your Outlook, Outlook Express and Windows Mail inbox.

And browsing protection sees ZoneAlarm Extreme Security monitoring the sites you attempt to visit, and the files you download, warning you about any that appear to be dangerous.

But there's also much more. Like solid Parental Controls, based on Net Nanny; an online backup tool with 2GB of free server space; browser virtualisation, which keeps any malware away from your system; a Registry-cleaning PC Tuneup module, private browsing, keylogger jamming, and more.

Perhaps the best example of the extra power on offer here is the Identity Protection module. Like many other suites, it allows you to enter personal information - addresses, credit card details, phone numbers and so on - and then ensures they can't leave your PC without permission. But it also offers American users a free one year subscription to Identity Guard, which provides daily credit record monitoring, email alerts of any activity, and free phone assistance if this reveals anything suspect.

There's a price to pay for this, of course, and Extreme Security is the most expensive product in the ZoneAlarm range. If you don't need quite so much power then ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite drops Registry cleaning, virtual and private browsing, and keylogger jamming, and is $10 cheaper. And if you don't need the parental controls or spam filter then opting for ZoneAlarm Antivirus + Firewall will save you another $10. Find out more and compare the various editions at the ZoneAlarm site.

What's new in the 2015 edition?

- New: Advanced Real-Time Antivirus (Real-Time Cloud Protection)
- New: Threat Emulation
- New: Find My Laptop
- New: Anti-Keylogger
- New: Privacy Toolbar with Internet Explorer 11 support
- Updated: Antivirus engine
- Updated: UI minor adjustments
- Improved: Enhanced Browser Protection (Web Monitor)
- Improved: PC Tune-Up

Verdict:

While some of its modules aren't so great - the spam filter is weak, for instance - overall ZoneAlarm Extreme Security offers plenty of effective protection and is good value for money

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.
