Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2012
Tired of slow, bloated antivirus packages? Then take a look at this

SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2012 is, according to Webroot, "the fastest and lightest virus and spyware protection you can buy".

How fast? The company says that after the initial scan, subsequent system scans typically take around two minutes. And when we tried the program it was even faster, with complete scans taking around 35 seconds. Of course these aren't full system scans - there's only time for SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2012 to be checking your running processes - but as long as its detection engine is good then that's still enough to keep you safe.

The package really is lightweight, too. Memory use peaked at around 50MB during scanning on our test PC, but when idle could be as little as 2MB. And while SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2012 needs its share of CPU time, this didn't interfere with other things: you'll probably be able to carry on with other things without even noticing that a scan is taking place.

What's more, as the program is cloud-based, checking your files against a huge malware database on Webroot's servers, it's always up-to-date.

And yet despite the program's lightweight nature, it still manages to cram in plenty of features. So you get real-time protection, on-demand and scheduled scanning, browsing protection, a sandbox, the ability to prevent malware from changing your settings, and more.

Note that you need to register at to get a trial serial code.


It's perhaps a little expensive, but then by way of compensation Webroot SecureAnywhere AntiVirus 2012 is also fast, lightweight and packed with features - and it's certainly good enough to justify checking out the trial

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
