SX Antivirus Kit
All SecurityXploded's virus hunting tools in one place

SX Antivirus Kit is a collection of all the virus-hunting tools released by SecurityXploded (that's 14 in total).

There's no antivirus engine here, nothing to directly detect and remove malware. Instead, the tools are more about manual detection, helping you spot possible signs of infection.

"Stream Armor" searches your system for files containing Alternate Data Streams, for example, a technique sometimes used by malware to conceal its code.

"ProcNetMonitor" displays any processes with network connections. You can check anything suspect at VirusTotal, and close dubious processes in a couple of clicks.

"NetShareMonitor" lists your network shares and shows you who's accessing them right now.

"AdvancedWinServiceManager" displays your installed services, highlights anything unusual, and allows you to check the relevant files at VirusTotal.

The VirusTotal support continues with VirusTotalScanner, which uploads a file to the site and displays a report for you.

You also get tools to manage Windows Autorun, control Internet Explorer BHO's, calculate and verify file hashes, and more.

There's nothing too surprising here, and we found small issues with several of the tools. Some need administrative rights, for instance, but they won't self-elevate: run them as a standard user and they'll crash, or display a misleading error message.

Elsewhere, the VirusTotal Scanner can only upload and check one file at a time. And SpyDLLRemover doesn't run on Windows 8 at all.

There are some useful tools here, though, and SX Antivirus Kit is an easy way to get hold of them in one go. Worth a look if you don't already have something similar.

Version 2.0:
    - Mega release with latest versions of existing system security & anti-virus tools along with new addition of 'Chrome Malware Alert Blocker' tool. Also integrated Uninstaller into Windows Add/Remove Programs.

Verdict:

SX Antivirus Kit doesn't have any outstanding tools, but there are a few which can help out with manual malware-hunting.

Please note, the package arrives as an installer, but most of its tools are actually portable. Use an archive manager like 7Zip to extract the contents of Setup_SXAntivirusKit.exe, check the destination folder, and you'll find the various executables, ready to launch.

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.
