.NET Framework Cleanup Tool
Fully uninstall the .NET Framework

The .NET Framework Cleanup Tool is a free portable tool which quickly removes the version of the .NET Framework you select from a PC.

This is generally a dangerous thing to do and likely to break a host of applications and cause more harm than good, but if you're sure .NET is corrupted on your PC, and repairs, reinstalls and every other troubleshooting step has failed then it just might save your life.

If you're determined to go ahead, it's all very easy. Download the cleanup tool, unzip and launch it (the program is portable, no installation is required). Then choose the version of the .NET Framework that you'd like to remove, click Cleanup Now and it'll be properly removed for you.

The .NET Framework Cleanup Tool supports the following Framework products:

  • .NET Framework - All Versions
  • .NET Framework - All Versions (Tablet PC and Media Center)
  • .NET Framework - All Versions (Windows Server 2003)
  • .NET Framework - All Versions (Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008)
  • .NET Framework 1.0
  • .NET Framework 1.1
  • .NET Framework 2.0
  • .NET Framework 3.0
  • .NET Framework 3.5
  • .NET Framework 4
  • .NET Framework 4.5
  • .NET Framework 4.5.1
  • .NET Framework 4.5.2
  • .NET Framework 4.6

While this can be a life-saver, the author says that the removal process will strip out shared Registry keys required by other Framework versions, so you'll need to be prepared to reinstall all of these (not just the one you're removing). Check the tool's home page for more details.

Verdict:

The .NET Framework Cleanup Tool is an excellent way to repair a corrupted .NET setup, but it can also be dangerous - this isn't for novices. Don't use the program until you're sure you understand all the issues, and are ready to reinstall every version of .NET currently on your PC

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
