Junkware Removal Tool
Remove adware, toolbars and more

Junkware Removal Tool, now owned and developed by Malwarebytes, is a console-based tool which can help you to detect and remove a range of unwanted software from your PC.

The author's website says Junkware Removal Tool has the ability to remove the following types of program: Ask Toolbar; Babylon; Browser Manager; Claro / iSearch; Conduit; Coupon Printer for Windows; Crossrider; DealPly; Facemoods / Funmoods; iLivid; Iminent; IncrediBar; MyWebSearch; Searchqu; Web Assistant. However, other adware and toolbars are also supported.

The program arrives as a very small download (538KB), and really couldn't be any simpler to use. There are no options, no settings; just run it if your system has become infested with some junk you can't remove, and JRT will scan your system - folders, processes, loaded modules, the Registry and more - and get rid of any annoyances it finds. A text file opened after the program has finished lists any actions it's taken.

The Junkware Removal Tool scanning process is a little more intrusive that you might expect from this kind of tool. It will close any open Explorer or browser windows, for instance, which can be annoying: to avoid problems, it's best if you close these yourself before launching a scan.

Otherwise, though, Junkware Removal Tool seems a very useful tool, lightweight, effective and exceptionally easy to use. Go grab a copy.

Verdict:

A small, simple, but effective adware removal tool

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

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.

What's New in Version 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
