Emsisoft's virus hunter is faster than ever

Emsisoft Anti-Malware is a powerful tool for detecting and removing both viruses and spyware.

The program offers multiple layers of protection. A web monitor blocks attempts to reach malicious websites; the real-time file guard checks the files you access for threats; and even if that fails, the Behavior Blocker watches programs for suspect actions, detecting and blocking even brand new, previously undiscovered threats.

If you don't want to run scans while you're working then Anti-Malware's scheduler gives you plenty of options. You can set up a scan to run daily, weekly or monthly, at regular intervals, or after your PC starts, and all of these options can be combined to do just about whatever you like. (Run a Quick Scan every hour between Monday-Friday, say, and a Full Scan at 1AM on the first of every month.)

There's just as much configurability elsewhere. The program's "Surf Protection" feature doesn't just blindly block sites on a list; you can define the type of sites it checks, the action it takes (Alert, Block and notify, Block silently), and customise the list to allow or block access to any domains you choose.

The Behavior Blocker panel offers even more protection possibilities. It's a Task Manager-type module which by default only displays running programs which it doesn't trust, immediately highlighting potential threats. In a click or two you can search for its name online, open the program's folder in Explorer, close it down, even - if you're sure it's dangerous - create a rule which will block it from ever running again.

2017.7 updates include, (see the changelog):

New: Forensic log: a condensed timeline that shows all events and user actions in an easy to read form.
New: Auto-resolve mode for behavior blocker alerts: an option that makes all decisions on its own.
New: Anti-Malware Network lookups during quarantine re-scans, to reduce the number of false positives.
New: General warning for possible compatibility issues with other already installed Anti-virus/Anti-Malware programs, during installation.
Improved: Program startup and updater performance.
Improved: Several minor tweaks and fixes.
Fixed: Issue that showed the scanner result window in scheduled scans even if silent mode was enabled.
Fixed: Application rules: ‘always block’ rules were not applied.

Verdict:

Faster scanning speeds and the extended scheduler are major highlights of this new release

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.42

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 2.17.42

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
