Avast Clear (Uninstall Utility)
Remove unwanted avast! software with avast! Cleanup Tool

If you have decided that you no longer want to use a particular program, you may well head to the Control Panel or the Start menu and run through the installer. In most cases you will find that this gets rid of the program in question in its entirety, but this is not necessarily the case.

There are occasions when an uninstaller files for one reason or another, and this could mean that software you do not want is left untouched on your hard drive, or that remnants of it are left behind. When you have indicated that you want to remove a program, it stands to reason that you would prefer that no traces of it were left behind, and this is something that Avast Clear (Uninstall Utility) can help you with.

This is a very specific tool that have been designed to be used to get rid of , and in the case of avast! Antivirus Free and Professional, or avast! Internet Security. There is no need to install the app as it is a standalone tool – just fire it up and it will quickly remove any files or registry entries that have been left behind.

You should first run through the regular uninstaller for you avast! tool or you will find that this utility has not effect. If you have other anti-malware software installed, it is possible that Avast Clear (Uninstall Utility) will be flagged up as being suspicious, but it is perfectly safe.

Verdict:

A handy tool for cleaning up after an untidy uninstall – great to keep your system under control.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

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 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
