Detect and remove rootkits

GMER is an expert-level tool which can scan your PC to help you find and remove rootkits.

The program can detect all kinds of hidden objects - processes, threads, services, files, Alternate Data Streams, Registry keys, SSDT hooks and more - which all helps to ensure that any dubious software installed on your PC will be detected.

Rootkit detection is potentially risky, though. You may find GMER locks up your PC while running, for instance, even if you don't have an infection. So you should ideally save any unsaved documents and close all other running applications before you launch GMER. And because removal of deeply embedded malware can break Windows, we'd recommend you have a complete system backup to hand, too.

Aside from the rootkit detection, GMER also provides some useful system management tabs to help you see and control what's happening on your PC. The Processes tab is a little like Task Manager, for instance, providing details on running processes; the Services shows you your drivers and services, as well as enabling you to change their startup mode or delete them entirely; and you also get a file browser, a Registry viewer, a list of your Windows startup programs, and more.

Please note, these too can be potentially risky (delete a key Windows service and your system may not boot again). Again, only play with these if you know what you're doing, and have a full system backup to hand, as well as the means to restore it.

Build 2.2 adds:

- Added support for Windows 10
- Improved files & disk scanning

Verdict:

GMER is a powerful security tool, but with that power comes responsibility - use it carefully or you could trash your PC

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

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 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
