IObit Toolbox
Clean, optimise and repair your PC

IObit Toolbox is a free suite of 20 PC speedup, repair, security and other tools.

The Clean section appears first on the list, probably wise as it has the very best tools. The excellent IObit Uninstaller helps to uninstall programs properly; a Registry Cleaner locates and removes other leftover Registry entries; the Privacy Sweeper clears your activity history in Windows, browsers and other apps; the Disk Cleaner removes junk files to free up your hard drive space; and the File Shredder deletes confidential files so they can't be recovered.

Next up is the Optimize section, which includes modules to control your Windows startup programs, defragment the Registry and optimise your internet connection, Firefox and Chrome settings.

The Repair section can undelete lost files, detect and fix broken shortcuts, analyse and repair your file system. An Advanced Fix module provides one-click solutions to common problems, like "the font folder is not working" or "thumbnails are not working in Explorer". And other modules can help quickly resolve IE, Media Player and more general system issues.

The Security section seems relatively underpowered by comparison, including just a tool to list your running programs and a basic scanner for missing security patches.

And the oddly named "Control" section includes tools to help you analyse your use of hard drive space, detect duplicate files, and find and delete empty folders.

Some of these modules are of little value. Smart RAM is another pointless "memory optimiser", for instance, and Process Manager is like Task Manager, only less powerful. There's plenty of more useful functionality available here, though, and if you're at all interested in these kind of PC management tools then IObit Toolbox is definitely worth trying. Especially as it's portable - just unzip the program onto a USB flash drive and you can run it anywhere.

Verdict:

There's something for everyone in this library of cleanup, optimisation and repair tools

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.23

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 2.17.2?

- You can now tap send on messages when you don't have a connection. Messages will be queued up and sent when your phone regains a connection. 
- Redesigned storage usage screen lets you manage your phone's storage space by clearing certain message types, like videos, from specific chats (Settings -- Data and Storage Usage -- Storage Usage).
- Send up to 30 photo or videos at once now.
