Emsisoft Emergency Kit
Clean up a malware-infested PC in minutes

The Emsisoft Emergency Kit offers a collection of tools to help you detect and remove malware from an infected PC.

The suite includes the Emsisoft Emergency Kit Scanner, which will quickly scan your PC to uncover more than 4 million known threats.

A command line version of the scanner makes it very easy to create batch files that will customise exactly how the detector works.

If these utilities don't do the job, then Emsisoft HiJackFree allows you to investigate the system manually. You're able to view active processes, drivers, services, Windows startup programs, open ports, host file entries and more, helping you to spot any brand new threats that might have breached your PCs defences.

Removing these dangers can be difficult, unfortunately: malware uses all kinds of tricks to protect itself from deletion. But that's why Emsisoft added BlitzBlank to their Emergency Kit. This useful utility is able to delete files, drivers and Registry entries at boot time, before the virus has loaded, so bypassing any protection it might employ and ensuring your PC will quickly be restored to normal.

What's new in v11.9 (see the changelog for more)?

- Improved: License key validation and mapping.
- Improved: Automatic update process.
- Improved: Computer name added to scan log.
- Improved: A2CMD now processes “/?” and “/help” even if no valid key installed.
- Improved: A2CMD now processes “/k” and “/u” combination in one commandline.
- Improved: A2CMD /? wording.
- Fixed: Various occasional crash bugs.
- Fixed: Issue with button order.
- Fixed: Occasional issue with ‘Quarantine selected’ and ‘Delete selected’ buttons.

Verdict:

The Emsisoft Emergency Kit features a useful collection of cleanup tools. Download a copy now and unpack it to a USB flash drive, so it'll be ready when you need it

Thorough, but may need a custom setting

Posted by: M.C. Straver, 12 July 2013 12:20

Giving this a thorough test run on a testbed with purposeful infection with malware, including a nasty keylogger that acts like a rootkit, it picked out most things straight up. However, files hidden in the actual file system are not picked out, making it less effective against deep infections and rootkits.

My suggestion: perform a custom scan, and select "Use direct disk access" to find deeply hidden malware in addition to more easily traceable malware.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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.

What's new in 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- 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+)
