System Cleaner
Clean, optimise and repair your PC with this familiar-looking maintenance suite

System Cleaner is the trial version of a PC cleanup, optimisation and maintenance suite.

The program comes with 12 modules, separated into categories like "Clean up & Repair", "Optimise & Improve" and "Privacy & Security" to help you locate the function you need. And these will help you to clean up your hard drive, fix Registry problems, locate duplicate files, shred confidential files so they can't be recovered, and control your Windows startup programs, amongst other things.

This looks much like any other suite of this type, then, and the individual tools don't really stand out, either. So the Disk Cleaner found very few junk files on our test PC, for instance, and the Startup Manager displayed less startup programs than you might find with some free tools.

Still, there are some plus points here.

A System Snapshot tool allows you to record your system state before or after some action, like installing a program, and will then report on any changes.

System Cleaner backs up any settings before it changes them to the "Rescue Manager", making it easy to reverse your last tweaking session, if it should be necessary.

The interface is clear and attractive - it's really very easy to use.

And the suite is amazingly compact, with the entire Program Files\Pointstone folder taking a mere 3.26 MB of hard drive space on our test PC.

Whether that justifies the $34.95 purchase price is another matter - but if you're curious, download the trial and find out for yourself.

What's new in (Version History)?

  • Integrator: Windows 10 improvements
  • Integrator: Improvements on scan results
  • Other minor fixes and improvements

System Cleaner is well presented and includes one or two useful features, but most people will probably get better cleanup and optimisation results by using the top freeware tools, instead

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.11

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 2.16.11?

 - Due to a bug in iOS 10, your notification sounds may not properly play until you restart your iPhone (press and hold the power and home buttons for 10 seconds).
- In groups, you can now mention specific people to get their attention by typing the @ symbol and choosing someone from the picker. 
- When forwarding messages, you can now send to multiple chats at once 
- 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+)
