System Explorer Portable
A comprehensive Task Manager replacement

System Explorer is a powerful tool which tells you more about the programs running on your PC.

This starts with basic details, like process name, ID, CPU and RAM use. A Security icon highlights anything suspicious, and if you don't recognise a process then clicking "Details" opens a web page which may tell you more.

An "Action Log" pane displays key actions of the currently selected process, including any network connections opened and programs launched: perfect for hunting malware.

A Performance tab not only displays a graph of CPU, RAM and swap file use, but also highlights the most demanding processes.

The History tab displays a timeline of your recent PC activities, including processes launched and terminated, and network connections opened and closed.

There are other modules to display your startup programs, drivers, Windows services, uninstallers, network traffic, loaded modules and assorted other useful system information.

Most of these features go well beyond static lists. View your startup programs, say, and you can disable or delete any you don't need, search for them online, open their program folder or check their Registry key in REGEDIT.

A Snapshot tool can create snapshots of your system at any time - before or after the installation of a program, say - and display the differences between them.

Best of all, while this may sound overwhelming, smart interface design keeps any navigation hassles to a minimum. If you're only interested in the Snapshot and History tools, say, just set up the program to display those tabs only, and you need never see any of the other functions again.

Verdict:

System Explorer is easy to use and provides a host of computer maintenance and management tools. These don't have the depth of the more specialist competition, though. If you're an expert user who needs the maximum amount of detail about running processes, say, Process Explorer or Process Hacker will still be preferable.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.10

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 2.16.10?

• When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once (iOS 8+)
• Ask Siri to send WhatsApp messages or place WhatsApp calls (iOS 10+)
• Answer WhatsApp calls right from your lock screen, just like a standard phone call (iOS 10+)
• A new Widget lets you quickly jump to a recent chat or see which chats have unread messages (iOS 10+)
• Chats you frequently contact now appear when forwarding or sharing messages 
• A new quick forward button on photos and videos in chats
• When taking photos or videos, double tap your screen to switch between the front and rear cameras
