AVG AntiVirus Free
Combined AVAST and AVG technology for one powerful free security tool

AVG AntiVirus FREE 2018 is a fast, effective and extremely popular antivirus tool, mixing the best of AVAST and AVG's technology.

A stylish and appealing Windows 10 interface makes it easy to see the latest security status for various areas, with panels for "Computer" and "Web & Email" (there's also greyed out "Hacker Attacks", "Private Data" and "Payments" which are modules in the paid-for AVG Internet Security 2018).

Each panel represents an aspect of AVG FREE's protection - antivirus, browsing protection, behavioural monitoring and email scanning - and you can click any of these to enable, disable or configure it to suit your needs.

You'll probably be more interested in checking your system for malware, though, and that's just as straightforward: click "Scan Computer" and watch as the program goes to work.

If you need more control, click the gear icon next to "Scan Computer" and you're able to check specific files or folders, run different scan types, or use the flexible scheduler to automatically run scans whenever you like.

The program also comes with AVG Zen, which allows you to monitor and manage AVG installations across all your devices.

Upgrading to AVG Internet Security 2018 gets you improved browsing protection, priority security updates, a smart firewall, spam filter, file encryption, a software update tool and much more

Verdict:

The new AVG AntiVirus FREE has gained some welcome extras from the new AVAST input, and we'll be interested to see how that translates into protection levels.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

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 2.17.81

- Want to easily record long Voice Messages? When recording a Voice Message, just swipe up to lock recording so you can continue to record without keeping your finger down.
