Trend Micro Rootkit Buster BETA 5.0.0.1129 (64-bit)
Quickly detect and disable some rootkits

Trend Micro Rootkit Buster BETA is a portable, easy to use and extremely quick way to detect and disable some rootkits.

The program comes in the form of a single executable. This can check three main areas for infection - "Files or Master Boot Records", "Services" and "Kernel Code Patches" - and each of these can optionally be disabled, if you can think of a good reason to do so.

Generally, though, all you then have to do is click "Scan Now, and watch as Rootkit Buster scans the system areas you've specified, delivering its verdict and disabling any threats (if present) in little more than a second.

As its extreme speed suggests, this isn't the most thorough of security health checks, and Trend Micro Rootkit Buster is no substitute for a regularly updated, full-strength antivirus tool.

The program is easy and convenient to use, though, so it's worth keeping a copy around, just in case you're infected by something which your regular security package can't remove.

Verdict:

Basic but extremely fast, Trend Micro Rootkit Buster is worth including in your portable security toolkit

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.
