IObit Malware Fighter 6
Keep your PC spyware-free

IObit Malware Fighter is a straightforward antispyware tool that can protect your PC in several different ways.

For example, you can run an on-demand scan to look for spyware, adware, trojans, bots, and other threats that your regular antivirus software might have missed. The "Smart Scan" checks only the most critical areas of your PC, and runs fairly quickly (around 7 minutes on our test PC); you can run a complete system scan if you prefer, while the "Custom Scan" allows you to choose exactly what you'd like the program to examine.

And Malware Fighter also includes real-time protection in the shape of 5 guards, which variously monitor your startup programs, browser settings, cookies, the web pages you view, and the files you access.

Our first brief tests left some questions over the program's accuracy, with Malware Fighter missing a real threat, and incorrectly warning us of two entirely safe files. And it's also a little short on features. If you want scheduled scans, protection for USB viruses, process scanning or technical support then you'll need to upgrade to Malware Fighter Pro, currently available for $19.95 a year.

Note that IObit Malware Fighter works as freeware unless you choose to upgrade to Pro.

Malware Fighter 6.0.2.4612 brings these improvements:

+ New Safe Box to protect your specified folders from unauthorized access.
+ New MBR Guard to protect your PC against the malicious attacks targeting MBR, like GoldenEye/Petya attacks. 
+ Newly supported Anti-Cryptocurrency Mining in Surfing Protection & Ads Removal to block cryptocurrency mining scripts and avoid unexpected system slowdown or crash caused by them. 
+ New Notification Center to check and process all missed notifications with 1-click
+ New UI to support high DPI displays & high-resolution screens for a better experience
+ Larger database to remove the latest stubborn malware and viruses
+ Optimized IObit Anti-malware Engine for faster scan, more accurate detection, and more powerful threat removal
+ Enhanced Cloud Security with larger database for higher security
+ Enhanced Fix All to update database, turn on the protections and guards, and perform a Quick Scan with 1-click.
+ Supported 32 languages

Verdict:

While it's lightweight, fast and easy to use, IObit Malware Fighter is just a little too limited for our liking. There are better free antivirus tools around.

This information is not true.

This information is not true. Here is a much older version, if it is written.
This link is for v2.0.0.202, but latest is v2.0.0.204
That version, which is written here - not yet managed to find.

Hi Kaluju, the installer is v2.0.0.204, the actual build itself is 2.0.1.6. Confusing, we know. But it's up-to-date.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

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.

What's New in Version 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
