Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2016
Go way beyond the usual antivirus basics

Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2016 is the latest edition of Bitdefender's feature-packed antivirus package.

At the core of the program is an accurate and reliable antivirus engine, generally rated by independent testing labs as one of the best around (check out AV-Comparatives' latest Real-World Protection tests here)..

The big addition this time is ransomware protection. The suite monitors access to files in your main user folders (and anywhere else you like), detecting and blocking unauthorised attempts to delete or tamper with your files.

Antivirus Plus 2016 monitors your browsing, detecting and blocking malicious links, helping you avoid malware and phishing scams.

Bonus features include a password manager which can also remember and autocomplete your credit card details in web payment forms.

A desktop widget makes it easy to scan files or monitor your security; the USB Immunizer prevents malware infecting your key drives; Bitdefender's Rescue Mode provides a secure and isolated environment, outside of Windows, which can help remove even the most stubborn threats.

It's a long list of features, but fortunately Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2016 is easy to use, a well-designed interface ensuring most common tasks are just a click or two away.

What's new in build 28?

• FIXED: Rare main process crash generated by OneClick Optimizer
• FIXED: Rare main process crash generated by TrafficLight
• FIXED: Rare crash caused by the Agent
• FIXED: Several User Interface display and localization issues
• FIXED: Firewall contacting the cloud in a loop
• FIXED: Inability to disable SafePay
• FIXED: Rare bug in selecting the best server for the user
• IMPROVED: Agent's functionality has been augmented
• IMPROVED: Product's ability to communicate with the cloud
• IMPROVED: Central's ability to handle subscriptions
• IMPROVED: SafePay's compatibility with other applications using overlays
• IMPROVED: Product's ability to handle special characters when whitelisting websites
• IMPROVED: Parental Control was renamed as Parental Advisor

Verdict:

Its core security features remain largely unchanged, but the new anti-ransomware technology is a major plus, and overall Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2016 is an excellent antivirus tool.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.5

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.
