Clam Sentinel 1.22
Add basic real-time antivirus protection to ClamWin

Clam Sentinel is a lightweight tool which extends the antivirus tool ClamWin with basic real-time protection.

The program works by monitoring the drives you specify (local, removable or network) for new or modified files, then launching ClamWin to scan anything it finds.

This could generate a lot of extra activity on your PC, but there are various configuration options to keep it under control. You can choose the drives, paths and file extensions to scan, as well as setting the maximum number of simultaneous scans, very helpful when tuning your system for the best results.

It's important to keep in mind that Clam Sentinel is no substitute for the built-in real-time protection systems of other antivirus tools. It has fewer mechanisms for detecting new files, for example, is more easily bypassed, and can't defend itself from malware like most of the competition.

Still, the program's developer does point out that Clam Sentinel great for older computers - in fact, it runs on anything from Windows 98 upwards - and on balance it's a useful extension to ClamWin.

(Please note: you must install ClamWin before Clam Sentinel for the program to work.)


ClamWin isn't a great antivirus tool, but if you like or must use it for some reason, then Clam Sentinel extends the program with basic - but still welcome - real-time protection.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.7

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 2.12.7 brings:

• Starred Messages
