Sophos Virus Removal Tool
Check your PC for malware

The Sophos Virus Removal Tool is a simple application for running on-demand antivirus scans on your PC.

The interface is very basic. You can't tell the program what to scan; there's no need to choose a scan type; and you can't schedule scans to run unattended. All you can do is launch a full system scan, and then allow the program to remove anything it finds.

This simplicity is the whole point, though. Sure, the Sophos Virus Removal Tool doesn't provide real-time protection, support scheduled scans or anything else advanced at all, but this does mean you should be able to run the program alongside your regular security package. And then you can run it whenever you like, just to get a second opinion on your system's security status.

Verdict:

A very basic on-demand antivirus tool

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.
