360 Internet Security
Block malware with China's favourite antivirus tool

360 Internet Security is a free antivirus application (not a suite, despite the name) from the Chinese company Qihu 360 Software.

The program provides a good range of features, with on demand scanning, real-time protection, antiphishing and privacy protection modules. All of this is supported by three antivirus engines. Qihu provide two - a "360 checksum based cloud" and "machine learning QVM" engines - and, notably, you also get the BitDefender engine. The end result isn't bad at all for a free antivirus package, with AV-Test recently ranking the program as broadly equivalent to the protection of Avast, Avira and AVG's engines.

In practical terms, the program got off to a bad start with us, claiming that there "wasn't enough free hard drive space" to install (there was more than 2.5TB).

We switched to another drive and the installation proceeded without problems. You're not forced to remove "incompatible" products, and there's no need to reboot: just wait and in a moment or two 360 Internet Security's attractive and straightforward interface will pop up.

We tried some scans, and they were a little slower than we might normally expect. Our test samples were all detected, but the program also seemed prone to generating false alarms. It seems the developers perhaps realise this, as detected threats aren't automatically removed, and you can click a "later" button to postpone any action.

If you're happy with this, though, there's nothing else to do here: just close the program window, and 360 Internet Security carries on running in the background, doing a generally good job of protecting your PC from harm.

What's new in v5.0.0?

- Fixed: Bug fixes


360 Internet Security 2013 looks good, is easy to use, and provides antivirus protection which is comparable to or better than several of its big-name free competitors

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.
