EventSentry Light
Monitor your Windows event logs and PC system health from one location

EventSentry Light is a powerful tool that can monitor your Windows event logs (and system health), alerting you to any problems.

If you're a Windows expert and want to be warned if a particular event type occurs, for instance, then you can have the program display a message or send you an email.

A Software Monitoring option allows the program to log when software is installed, or uninstalled (useful if your PC has several users and you'd like to track what they're doing). And it can also record programs that have configured themselves to load when Windows launches.

A Disk Space monitor is able to alert you when the free space on a drive gets too low (you get to decide what figure that might be). Or it can check a particular folder, alerting you when its size exceeds or falls below a particular limit.

And the Performance Monitoring module can track your PCs CPU or memory usage, again logging the details if something's hogging all your resources.

If you need even more power then opting for the commercial edition will get you the ability to manage more than 2 remote computers, with web-based reporting and iPhone/ Android apps. Command line tools support automation, there are full software and hardware inventories, and if you have any problems then you can call on phone, email and even "getting started" support. Prices start at $85 per host, and the EventSentry site will tell you more.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.19

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.
