  1. Review - Malwarebytes (Beta) (Nov 25, 2016)

    Looking good - Now combines anti-malware, exploit protection & anti-ransom products in one. I'm having a few problems with the beta remembering my settings on re-boot but happy issues will be sorted on final. Scans far faster than original Malwarebytes along with many new features.

    It's now being touted as a 'Next-Generation Antivirus Replacement' - So make of it what you will :-)

  2. Review - O&O SafeErase Professional (64-bit)

    11.0.89 (Nov 17, 2016)

    I've bought this since version 5 & the changes from version to version are miniscule. I wont be buying it anymore, it has few functions if any CCleaner don't have. O&O just roll a new numbered version out every year like clockwork to extract cash from their users as they do with all their products.- Don't bother.

  3. Review - FreeCommander

    XE 2016 Build 730 Beta (Oct 24, 2016)

    Used this for some time & is my choice of file managers, great program. The UI is good - Always 5 stars without question.

  4. Review - Emsisoft Anti-Malware (Oct 21, 2016)

    How it can be advertised as 'a none bloat' solution when the download is around 235 Meg against for example ESET @ 90 is beyond me. It also has high memory use, if none of these are an issue it may be the solution for you. I prefer lighter solutions & layed security.

    @henri2398 - You either are employed by Emsisoft or have been bribed :-)

  5. Review - CCleaner for Windows

    5.23.5808 (Oct 18, 2016)

    You don't have to have this program running in the background anymore than you ever have unless you want it that way, Still the best basic PC cleanup program by a fair margin & still free.

    Edit: @fredreed - I appreciate your point of view of this program & your personal bad experience with it. However I've used it from the very beginning & installed it on dozens of PC's without any problems. As mentioned elsewhere perhaps the registry cleaner element caused your problem? Personally I'm not a fan of automated registry cleaning & prefer manual removal of leftover programs - But it's pointless for this continued argument on here. I use Ccleaner & find it useful, however I fully accept your point of view of it also.

    As always everyone should always ideally have saved images of C:\ & backups of other data at all times as all cleanup programs (and life) have the potential to cause problems... Paul
