Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014
Kaspersky's latest improves both protection and performance

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 is the latest edition of Kaspersky's core anti-malware tool.

The program offers new protection against screen lockers (malware which locks your system and demands a fee to release it), while the anti-phishing module has been improved and updated.

A stronger focus on performance brings some welcome benefits. The program starts more quickly; GUI performance has been improved; resource use is down; and the system switches to a new "limited activity" mode when your PC is idle, so reducing its workload and helping to extend battery life.

The program has been simplified in various ways. The interface is optimised, with touch screen support; application reports are "simpler and more obvious", apparently; and configuration now only allows "frequently used application settings" to be customised. (We're not entirely sure about that - being able to adjust every aspect of a security tool has always seemed like a good thing, to us - but time will tell whether we've lost anything important.)

What's new in 2014 Patch B?

- Windows 8.1 support (upgrade from Win8 ) 
- FF 23/24 support
​- Lots of fixes

Verdict:

It's not a major update, but Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2014 does add some worthwhile improvements to what was already an excellent antivirus tool. Give it a try.

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.
