Sophos Virus Removal Tool
Check your PC for malware

The Sophos Virus Removal Tool is a simple application for running on-demand antivirus scans on your PC.

The interface is very basic. You can't tell the program what to scan; there's no need to choose a scan type; and you can't schedule scans to run unattended. All you can do is launch a full system scan, and then allow the program to remove anything it finds.

This simplicity is the whole point, though. Sure, the Sophos Virus Removal Tool doesn't provide real-time protection, support scheduled scans or anything else advanced at all, but this does mean you should be able to run the program alongside your regular security package. And then you can run it whenever you like, just to get a second opinion on your system's security status.

Verdict:

A very basic on-demand antivirus tool

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.10

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.

What's new in 2.16.10?

• When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once (iOS 8+)
• Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+)
• Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+)
• A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
• Chats you frequently contact now appear when forwarding or sharing messages 
• A new quick forward button on photos and videos in chats
• When taking photos or videos, double tap your screen to switch between the front and rear cameras
