AppRemover 3
Uninstall stubborn security tools

If you find you can't uninstall the average application - a browser, say, graphics editor or word processor - then it's a nuisance, but no more. Windows and the rest of your software will probably go on working just as it always did.

If the uninstall fails for an antivirus tool, though, it's a different story. Security software makes many low-level changes to your PC, and if these can't be undone then your PC may become unstable, or behave unpredictably. Worse still, you may find you can't install any new security software because it detects the remnants of your old package, and demands that be removed first.

There's a simple solution to these problems, though - and it's called AppRemover. Run the program, choose the option to look for failed uninstalls, and it'll scan your Registry and hard drive looking for remnants of old security packages. Hundreds of packages are supported, from all the major security companies: AVG, Avira, F-Secure, Kaspersky, Lavasoft, McAfee, Microsoft, Panda, PC Tools, Symantec, and many more. The chances are it'll detect what's left of your security program, then, and you can have it removed in a couple of clicks.

Did not work on Win7 x64. Didn't do a thing. reply:

Weird, it's definitely 64-bit compatible according to their website. Worked on our test 64-bit machine?

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.31

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.
