Ultra Virus Killer
A powerful set of tools for manually removing malware and repairing your PC

A name like "Ultra Virus Killer" might make you think this program will strip your PC of malware all on its own, but the truth is a little more complicated: the package is more about providing tools to help you manually find and remove unwanted programs, then repair any damage they might have caused.

And so you get modules to view running processes, and the DLLs and other files they're using. The program allows you to control Windows startup programs, services, drivers and more. An alternate streams manager looks for suspect NTFS streams; you get a program to help you delete files or folders, even if they're in use; and there are modules to clean and repair your PC, even protect your Registry from modification, so maybe helping you to avoid infection in the first place.

Much of this will sound very familiar, but the program offers far more than you'll expect. The "Process Manager" isn't some feeble take on Task Manager, for instance. It's specifically oriented to malware hunting, with tools to delete multiple processes at the same time, to verify a file signature, to pause and resume a process, to search for it on Google, run process-specific checks at VirusTotal/ ThreatExpert/ Runscanner, and more.

And there's the same level of power just about everywhere you look. The "System Repair" module, for example, has tools to reset your host file and DNS to their default state; reset your PC's group policies; reset your Registry and NTFS security settings; get Windows Update working again; install or update various key components (DirectX/ Java/ Flash/ .NET); clear all your temporary folders, re-register all Windows DLLs, and the list goes on.

There are also dangers here. Resetting Registry permissions, re-registering DLLs and so on might solve some very difficult problems, but should things go wrong then they could also seriously damage your PC. And UVK does have several components which may have adverse effects (the Immunize function may prevent some malware infections, but it can also interfere with legitimate installations). This isn't a program to use unless you know what you're doing, and always have a full system backup to hand.

If you're an experienced Windows user, though, UVK has a lot to offer, being absolutely packed with effective malware hunting, PC maintenance and repair options.

Version brings:(Full Changelog)

  •   General debugging and improvement.

      The log analyzer was completely rewritten in C++. Many new features were added, especially in the command insertion helper function. Improvements were also made to the Log analysis, VirusTotal reports and the Control Info Tool features.

     The improvements in the VirusTotal reporting features were also made to UVK itself.

      Added support for two new script commands: <ResetMSEdge>, <FixUserProfiles> and <DismWindowsRepair>. These new commands allow to run the Reset Microsoft Edge, Fix corrupted user profiles, and Repair Windows using Dism.exe fixes, added to UVK in the last update, from a script.

     Added a new System repair item: Uninstall programs, and the associated script command: <SmartUninstaller>. This new feature allows to run a separate instance of the Smart Uninstaller in a specific part of the repair operation.

     Added a new System repair item: Send reports by Email or FTP, and the corresponding script command: <SendReports>. This new feature allows to send the reports to your email address or FTP server after the repair operation, or in a specific part of a UVK script.

     Fixed bug: UVK was unable to import the Create desktop shortcut to my home page upon uninstall feature from UVKSettings.ini.

     The Create desktop shortcut to my home page upon uninstall feature now creates a shortcut with a branded icon.


While it leaves you to do most of the work, Ultra Virus Killer is an excellent suite of manual malware hunting tools, and there are some very useful PC maintenance and repair modules thrown in, too

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.
