Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (MBAM) is a very popular security app for protecting computers running Windows operating system from malware. Malwarebytes Anti-Malware is available both as a freeware and as a paid commercial version with advanced protection features like real-time system protection. But for most users, the freeware version is still very useful to detect malware via manual scan of the system. The parent company behind MBAM, Malwarebytes Corporation, has released another security application, called Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit. Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit is in beta stage of production and may not be suitable for all users.

Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit, as its name suggests, is a standalone rootkit remover. The company advertises the product as a “cutting edge technology for detecting and removing the nastiest malicious rootkits.” Malwarebytes Anti-Rootkit is a portable application, which you can carry around in your portable drives and run. Thus its a very vital application to repair a computer system and will also find its place in the must have tools for your system admin toolkit.

Mozilla announced few days back about Firefox beta’s preliminary support for Social APIs. Mozilla has finally come up with the very first app based on this Social API’s, Facebook Messenger for Firefox. This app is really slick in design and functionality. If you are one of those Facebook users who are always online, you will like this app. But to make the app work on Firefox, you need to run the latest Firefox beta version (version 17 or newer releases).

Mozilla during the announcement stated that, “Much like the OpenSearch standard, the Social API enables developers to integrate social services into the browser in a way that is meaningful and helpful to users. As services integrate with Firefox via the Social API sidebar, it will be easy for you to keep up with friends and family anywhere you go on the Web without having to open a new Web page or switch between tabs. You can stay connected to your favorite social network even while you are surfing the Web, watching a video or playing a game.”

Do you remember Pokki, the unique app launcher for Windows users, we recommended earlier? Pokki lets you download and run various web apps from Windows Taskbar. Some popular apps available via its app store are Gmail, Facebook, InstagramAngry Birds, etc. We know all this about the app already. So, what’s the point of talking about the app again here, when it’s still holding to its beta badge? Well, the reason we are talking about Pokki here at MTG again is it’s now ready for Windows 8. The good news is, it will work as Windows 8 Start Menu replacement and lets you directly boot to the Desktop.

Unless you’ve lived under a rock, you’re by now aware that Microsoft has killed the Start Menu in Windows 8 completely. With the latest beta, Pokki added an option which will allow it to work as a start menu replacement for Windows 8. Pokki developers feel that many Windows 8 users might be frustrated, confused, and lost without a bridge to the traditional Start menu. Pokki surely solves this problem to a great extent, even though the app is still in its beta stage of development.
