Can't Touch This

The primary function of HijackThis is to scan the registry directory and services list. It then displays all the relevant entries,... Read full review
WannaCry Ransomware Protection
WannaCry ransomware is the most aggressive malware attack launched so far, affecting users in more than 150 countries. The ransomware uses vulnerabilities in older Windows versions (starting with Windows 8 and down) which allows spreading like a worm in Windows-based networks. Once a computer is infected, all files are encrypted and the... Read full review
Oh look, a relic!
I was really intrigued by reading this application's description. "Y2K proofing"? That's almost a quarter of a century old subject. Who cares about that anymore? However, notes say that Cracklock also protects your computer from the Y10K bug ( giggles ) and also against the so called "sadistic 30 day virus", of which I've never heard in my life...

Convenient and pretty much safe
Having too many passwords to remember, but being too careful to let your browser remember them? How about hiring an application that solves the dilemma? Of course, entrusting all your sensitive data to an application is not a decision you can make lightly. Don't worry though. If you like, you can keep everything local, far from the prying eyes...

An extra guardsman
In case you have recently pondered upon the efficiency of your antivirus, then you probably though about installing additional software. Unfortunately, having two or more antivirus suites doesn't bode well. It tends to consume much more resources and may also get in each other's way. Nevertheless, an application that is specifically designed... Read full review
Sometimes you realize that no matter what you try the adware just won't come off. Well, searching will eventually pay off. As it did in my case. A couple of months ago while installing something, I got click-happy and missed the fact that I had agreed to install a toolbar and some other questionable program along with what I intended. I don't... Read full review
It's time to talk about another cog in IObit's finely tuned computer management machine. If you have no clue of what I'm referring then you should probably also check out Start Menu 8 and IObit Uninstaller. If you think IObit is to your liking, then you will be happy to know that Advanced System Care brings them all into one package. Since... Read full review
If tiles aren't enough for you
An antivirus program that looks like a miniature Windows 8 interface has been spotted in the Spanish wilderness. Although the name Panda would suggest a different ancestry, this one is fairly anchored in the European space. Nevertheless this is not relevant in any way.
Panda Antivirus Free has interesting interface. It is mainly a... Read full review
Today we'll be taking a look at Bitdefender Antivirus. Despite the common gray and black theme that security software has begun using as of late, Bitdefender has some extra security features that might make it spiffy-er than the rest.
Bitdefender Antivirus Plus 2015 comes with standard scan features. Quick and System scans can be initiated... Read full review
As far as I can tell, I think I started liking small straight to the point apps for my computer. Do it all's might be good but they usually come with one of two problems attached to them. They're either expensive, or they're not very reliable. Therefore, an application that focuses on a narrow aspect of computer security might be the best of... Read full review
