Norman Malware Cleaner 2.08.08
Find and eliminate any viruses on your PC with this handy portable tool

Norman Malware Cleaner is an interesting portable antivirus tool which will scan your PC, detecting and removing any malware that it uncovers.

The program is very easy to use. Just download and launch it (patience may be required, it's a 275MB file), click the Start button and it'll immediately run a Quick Scan, checking your Registry and running processes for any sign of threats. This took only 75 seconds on our test PC, so you won't have long to wait, and anything Malware Cleaner finds will be immediately quarantined to keep you safe. (If this turns out to be a mistake then you can restore it from the Quarantine tab.)

Need a more thorough check? There's also the option to scan the most common file types for malware, every file on your system, or just a particular folder.

And clicking the Options tab reveals some useful settings. Check "Enable rootkit cleaning" and the tool will attempt to remove any rootkits it finds, for instance, while clearing "Enable archive unpacking" may greatly cut the time required to run full scans.

You don't get any real-time protection here, and it's not possible to schedule scans, so Norman Malware Cleaner is no substitute for a full antivirus package. If you think you might be infected by something and your regular security software can't help, though, then the program could be very useful: you should be able to run Malware Cleaner on any alongside other antivirus programs without conflicts, and it'll quickly give your system a security health check.

Verdict:

No antivirus program detects 100% of the threats out there, so every PC owner needs one or two additional lines of defence. Malware Cleaner is bulkier than many similar tools, but it's more powerful, too, and well worth adding to your security toolkit

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.80

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 2.17.80

• Now you can delete messages you've sent by mistake. Just tap and hold a message you sent in the last 7 minutes, tap delete, and select "Delete for everyone." The message will be deleted for you and everyone in the chat. Requires the latest version of WhatsApp.
• Live location: now you can share your location in real-time with family and friends. Open any chat, tap the + icon > location, and tap "Share Live Location" to get started. 
• Fixed an issue that was preventing some message notifications from appearing on iOS 11.
