Panda Free Antivirus 2016
A fast and effective antivirus tool

Panda Free Antivirus 2016 is the latest edition of Panda's popular antivirus engine.

A solid feature set includes real-time protection to block known threats; behavioural monitoring to uncover even the very latest malware; URL monitoring to prevent you accessing dangerous websites, while USB vaccination keeps you safe from autorun viruses and similar pests.

A Rescue Kit can create a bootable USB drive, or run Panda's Cloud Cleaner to detect and remove even the most stubborn viruses.

This release features a more subdued interface, though still with a Windows 8/ 10 look. It's straightforward and easy to use, with all the main functions just a click away.

The 2016 release is mostly about the new engine and Panda's smarter Collective Intelligence, which the company says provides greater protection with less impact on performance.

Verdict:

Panda Free Antivirus 2016 is fast, lightweight and offers excellent protection, regularly coming top of the list in independent testing reports.

Good detection rate Extremely lightweight

I decided to try this one (the Free version) after having constant problems with Avast 8 not initializing the GUI on boot-up (or showing non-existent shield errors) and conflicting with Thunderbird (you can't send mail because of an error of Avast mail shield) and i must say that i'm surprised with Panda's efficiency and amazing light footprint on your system (Cpu & Ram) AVcomparatives.org reports give it a 97.7% detection rate which is right up with some major names. Also you don't have to worry about daily updates or anything else. Due to it's cloud nature, it's constantly updated and also won't give you false positives! It also scans your system in the background but you won't notice any lags If you want more in-depth scans you can complement Panda with the several free AV scan-only like Kaspersky, Emsisoft or McAfee and run one of those once a week like i do... you also have the excellent MalwareBytes Anti-Malware Free to scan for malware and spyware so you don't need to spend money to be protected!

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.4

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.
