AVG Driver Updater 2.5.0
Scan, locate and download the latest drivers for your PC

Install Windows for the first time and you might find that you get default drivers Microsoft thinks you need for your hardware. However, these are not always the most optimised and are rarely the latest version available.

You could just go to the website for every component within your PC and download manually. It's not too tricky. Just find the details for your graphics card, head to the manufacturer's website and find the relevant download. Problem is, finding all the details for every component. There must be an easier way.

AVG Driver Updater is a tool which will scan your PC, check for installed components and then go off and check against a database to see if new drivers are available. It's not quite as effective as checking manually (as someone has to keep the database updated for AVG), but it saves a tonne of time.

Keeping your drivers updated does have benefits. You might find your sound card is updated to support the latest audio standards or the manufacturer has found a bug to improve performance. Your wifi might become more stable with the latest driver and so many other good reasons for updating your drivers.

AVG Driver Updater will enable you to backup your existing drivers before updating, just in case you run into update issues. You can also schedule a regular update check.

Verdict:

A simple tool, but it doesn't look anything like a 2019 AVG user-interface meaning it looks a little out of place side-by-side with your other AVG software.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.102

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 2.18.102 

• Introducing stickers! You can now download and send expressive stickers in chats. Tap the new "sticker" icon while in a chat to get started. You can also tap the "+" icon to download more sticker packs. If you'd like to create your own stickers for WhatsApp, visit whatsapp.com/stickers to get started.
• You can now easily search for GIFs right from within a chat. Just tap the "sticker" icon in a chat and then tap the "GIF" icon at the bottom.
• Consecutive Voice Messages will now play in sequence, so you don't have to press play on each message.
