Kaspersky Total Security 2017
A comprehensive, reliable and accurate security suite for all your devices

Kaspersky Total Security 2017 is a powerful suite of malware-hunting, anti-hacker, web safety tools.

There's antivirus. Browsing protection. A firewall. Exploit protection. A vulnerability scanner, parental controls, webcam and audio protection, online transaction protection, and more.

These features have real value, too. Independent testing labs such as AV-Comparatives typically rate Kaspersky as offering some of the best protection around.

New this time is the Software Updater, which checks for updates to common applications (Adobe Reader, Flash, Java, Chrome, Firefox, more), and can optionally install them without you having to see or do anything at all.

A "Secure Connection" feature is essentially a privacy-oriented VPN (virtual private network), automatically kicking in to protect you when using wifi hotspots, web banking sites and more.

An Installation Assistance tool looks out for adware and other pests that get silently installed with some "free" software, and the Software Cleaner helps you decide what to remove.

An extended Anti-Banner system now uses a "powerful subscription catalog held by a third-party", making it significantly better at blocking popups, web ads and more.

Kaspersky has "enriched the design and usability of the main screens for all the new line products", apparently.

The product is now fully compatible with Windows 10, but Kaspersky hasn't forgotten about older systems-- it still works with Windows XP.

Please note, Kaspersky Total Security 2017 is initially available only in the US and Canada.

Verdict:

Kaspersky Total Security 2017 is easy to use, with some welcome additions, and as usual provides rock solid protection.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.20

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.
