Spybot - Search & Destroy Portable 2.5
Keep your PC spyware-free with this versatile malware hunter

Spybot - Search & Destroy is a powerful portable tool for cleaning up spyware, adware and other menaces from your PC.

The program could be used as a simple on-demand scanner. So, if you think you might be infected with something nasty, but your regular antivirus software hasn't reported anything, then check your system with Spybot - Search & Destroy and it'll give you an immediate second opinion. (Well, maybe not immediate - it's relatively slow - but this could still be very useful.)

You also get optional real-time protection, though, which monitors your system and prevents unwanted files from being installed. This isn't a substitute for a full antivirus program, but could provide a worthwhile extra layer of protection.

And Spybot - Search & Destroy also includes some interesting tools that can help knowledgeable PC users uncover all kinds of problems. So for instance there are modules to display your Winsock LSPs and startup programs, to search for Registry inconsistencies, apply a few IE tweaks, and more.

Note this is the portable version of Spybot.

Verdict:

It won't replace your antivirus package, but Spybot - Search & Destroy can provide an important extra layer of security, helping you to detect and remove even more malware

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.91

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 2.18.91

- When receiving photos or GIFs, you can 3D Touch or swipe left on the notification and tap "View" to preview the media from within the notification (iOS 10+).
- You can now search on the Status tab to quickly find status updates.
