AVG Premium Security 2014
Block malware and hackers, speed up your PC and protect yourself from identity theft with this enhanced security suite

AVG Premium Security 2014 is an extended version of AVG's Internet Security 2014 which includes some very useful extras.

Identity Alert, for instance, is a web service which can scour the web looking for personal details like your credit card number, email address or telephone number. If it finds anything suspicious - a hacker has dumped your details online somewhere, perhaps - you'll be sent an email alert, giving you valuable time to inform your bank, change passwords and so on.

And Quick Tune is a simple but straightforward PC cleanup tool aims to enhance your system's performance by fixing Registry errors, removing junk files, defragmenting your hard drive and detecting and deleting broken shortcuts.

Of course you also get all the regular AVG Internet Security 2014 features. And these start with the core antivirus engine, which is not only a little more accurate in this release, but will also scan your system up to 36% faster.

Elsewhere, browsing protection sees the program scan web pages for danger before you even get to see them. A smart firewall blocks network attacks and intelligently controls access to your internet connection (so there are no annoying popups and alerts), while in our tests AVG's spam filter now blocks around 88% of all junk emails at its default settings (and that's an impressive 60% improvement on the previous edition).

All this is presented in a clean, simple and very Windows 8-like interface, which makes it easy to access the program's various features and functionality.

And there are plenty of other improvements across the suite. AVG Premium Security 2014 is now fully Windows 8.1-compatible, for instance; there's support for touch screens; and the package now loads more quickly, uses less resources, and generally has a reduced performance impact on your PC.

With the 2014 edition, AVG has added a File Shredder module, for securely erasing important documents, a Data Safe function, where you can securely store data in a password-protected virtual disk, plus improved detection for finding the most stubborn malware.

AVG Premium Security 2014 users now get two premium mobile apps for free (regular value $9.99/£6.50/€7.50), which will protect your Android smartphone and tablet device. Details of how to get your AVG Mobile AntiVirus PRO apps are included in Premium Security, but only after including your license code. The trial version only includes access to the free versions of the mobile apps.

Verdict:

AVG Premium Security 2014 is a powerful security suite, and its Identity Alert in particular could save you a great deal of trouble by alerting you to the loss of key personal details.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
