Spybot - Search & Destroy 2.7
Keep your PC spyware-free with this versatile malware hunter

Spybot - Search & Destroy is a powerful tool for cleaning up spyware, adware and other menaces from your PC.

The program could be used as a simple on-demand scanner. So, if you think you might be infected with something nasty, but your regular antivirus software hasn't reported anything, then check your system with Spybot - Search & Destroy and it'll give you an immediate second opinion. (Well, maybe not immediate - it's relatively slow - but this could still be very useful.)

You also get optional real-time protection, though, which monitors your system and prevents unwanted files from being installed. This isn't a substitute for a full antivirus program, but could provide a worthwhile extra layer of protection.

And Spybot - Search & Destroy also includes some interesting tools that can help knowledgeable PC users uncover all kinds of problems. So for instance there are modules to display your Winsock LSPs and startup programs, to search for Registry inconsistencies, apply a few IE tweaks, and more.

What’s new in version 2.7:
+ Start Center for frequently used functions
+ Adjustments for Windows 10 (1709) and higher
+ Better utilization of the antivirus engine
+ Upgraded service handling
+ Improved SecureBoot support
+ Improved search for malware

Verdict:

It won't replace your antivirus package, but Spybot - Search & Destroy can provide an important extra layer of security, helping you to detect and remove even more malware

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Windows 10 October 2018 Update (build 1809)

Free Full Commercial Software

This is the latest version of Windows October 2018 Update. it's a media creation tool that can be used to upgrade an existing installation of Windows or create installation media for another PC. Just make your choice after launching the tool and it'll do the rest.

What was new in Windows 10, when it was released? The OS brought back the Start Menu, though with a Windows 8 twist: live tiles keep you up-to-date with the latest news while also providing an easy way to launch apps. (Don't worry if you prefer the Start Screen, it's still there and you can boot into it if you prefer.)

Apps now work much more like regular desktop programs. They have minimise, maximise, restore and close buttons, and can be resized (to a degree) and organised however you like.

If you've still lost track of a program in the mass of open windows, a new Task Spaces feature can help. Click its taskbar button and you'll see thumbnails for everything running now, a little like OS X's Mission Control - just click something to switch to it.

Better still, Task Spaces also supports virtual desktops. Add extra desktops as required and it'll display thumbnails of each one, making it easy to identify whatever you're after and switch to it.

There's also smarter snapping, new customisation options, and even a bunch of experimental additions to the command prompt.

Fall Creators Update brings a whole host of new features for Windows 10. See the Microsoft Blog for more information.

The Windows 10 ISO here will give you build 1809 which is the October 2018 Update.
