SX System Suite 2.5
Detect malware manually with this powerful toolkit

SX System Suite 2.0 is a collection of the free system monitoring tools offered by SecurityXPloded. These can be used in various ways, but the most common is probably to try and manually detect malware on your PC.

VirusTotalScanner, for instance, allows you to check a file's safety at from your desktop - without uploading it. Choose your file, click the "VirusTotal Scan" button and the program will calculate a hash (a digital fingerprint) for the file and send that to the site. It'll run that hash against over 40 antivirus tools, and within seconds you'll know which (if any) think it's malicious.

Advanced Win Service Manager is a handy tool which allows you to view your Windows services in various ways (running services, core system services, running non-system services, and so on). Entries the programs thinks are suspicious are highlighted, and right-click options allow you to stop a service, disable it, or search for details at VirusTotal, Process Library or Google.

Elsewhere, ProcNetMonitor shows you the processes with open network connections, including the port number, remote address and other relevant details.

StreamArmor will scan your PC for files with alternate data streams (an NTFS technology sometimes used by malware to hide files).

SpyBHORemover lists Internet Explorer browser helper objects and tells you more about them.

And SpyDLLRemover itself integrates several tools, checking your PC for spyware, listing running processes and finding out more about particular DLLs.

There are some small issues here. The suite tries to add a new browser addon during installation, for instance. And there's no integration or Start Menu folder, so we had to browse to \Program Files (x86) to find the tools.

Still, once you've located everything there's enough here to be interesting. SX System Suite can't compete with, say, SysInternals tools for system monitoring features, but there is still plenty to explore, and if your PC is infected by something nasty then the suite may help you track it down.

Version 2.5:
Added one new tool - Windows UAC Manager and updated latest versions of existing tools.


While these aren't the best system monitoring tools, SX System Suite may be able to help experienced Windows users detect malware on their systems

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.
