Secunia PSI 3.0

This is a obviously a brand new build since it has a very different GUI from 2.0. I’m not sure I like it and hopefully they will add new features make navigating in the program a bit more like version 2.0.

VirusTotal for Android

This is pretty cool and I would encourage everyone to check it out. Be sure to create an account at VirusTotal so you can submit unknown apps to the scanner and make everyones device using the VirusTotal app safer.

VirusTotal for Android checks the applications installed in your Android phone against VirusTotal (http://www.virustotal.com).

It will inform you about malware (virus, trojans, worms) on your phone   and allows you to upload any unknown applications to VirusTotal. In   other words, VirusTotal for Android will get your applications scanned   by more than 40 antivirus, flagging any undesired content.

Please note that VirusTotal for Android does not provide real-time   protection and, so, is no substitute for any antivirus product, just a   second opinion regarding your apps.

Humble Software℠ Too many programs are built like they are the only piece of software running on your machine. Whether they slow down the rest of your computer, interfere with other software you have or may want, or just use up too much memory, it seems like certain software is always a battle of compromises.

We know our software isn’t the only software on your machine, and we design and build it accordingly. No matter what other programs you have installed, we strive to be a good neighbor. Not just by producing fast software, but by ensuring it is designed and tested to be compatible with nearly any combination of other software you may have installed.

The only “choice” you should have to make when installing software is whether or not you want it – not whether or not it’ll work with the software you already like and have.

A better Windows Search? Try Everything

When I am trying out software just to see what is included in the installer or just to get a feel for it to see if it can replace something else I use, or if I am simply uninstalling something I no longer use, I like to be sure everything is gone. I always uninstall software using the free version of Revo Uninstaller but it does not always completely remove everything. This is where Everything search engine comes in. Simply type what you are looking for and Everything shows you where its at or what remains of the leftovers.

Locate files and folders by name instantly.

  • Small installation file
  • Clean and simple user interface
  • Quick file indexing
  • Quick searching
  • Minimal resource usage
  • Share files with others easily
  • Real-time updating

For more information please visit the Everything FAQ
