Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013
Annihilate malware on site with this capable antivirus tool

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 is a powerful antivirus tool which provides many ways to detect, block and remove malware.

The program allows you to scan individual files or folders from the Explorer right-click menu, for instance. The Critical Areas Scan checks just the most likely infection points in a few seconds, while the Full Scan checks everything. And scans can be run manually, on a schedule, or you can have the program check your system automatically whenever it's idle.

While Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 looks and feels very like the previous edition, there are changes below the surface. The main addition, Kaspersky's new Automatic Exploit Prevention, aims to prevent malware from taking advantage of software vulnerabilities to infect your PC. And other tweaks include a simplified installation process, more accurate detection of phishing sites, and an easier-to-use virtual keyboard, which helps you enter passwords, account numbers and other details without their being intercepted by key loggers.

And a selection of interesting bonus tools will check Windows and Internet Explorer for poorly configured settings, as well as helping you maintain privacy by deleting various Windows and application histories.

None of this power gets in your way, though, and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 is for the most part very easy to use, making the program a very good choice for novices and PC experts alike.

Verdict:

An effective and versatile antivirus tool which comes packed with worthwhile features, yet always remains straightforward and easy to use.

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.
