Speed up, optimise, clean and secure your PC with this all-in-one system maintenance suite

System Mechanic Professional is an amazingly comprehensive tool that provides everything you'll need to clean, speed up, repair and secure your PC.

If your PC isn't performing, for instance, then System Mechanic will help you defragment your hard drive; optimise your Internet connection settings for faster downloads; defragment and compact the Registry; optimise the boot process by removing unnecessary startup programs, and get a temporary performance boost by closing down selected background processes.

But this is just the start. There are tools here to defragment and compact the Registry; repair hard drive problems; enhance system security, locate unnecessary duplicate files, or recover from disaster if Windows won't boot. A Windows tweaking tool provided easy access to more than 100 key Windows settings, an Advanced Uninstaller completely removes apps to free up hard drive space - and you could still create a very capable maintenance suite from the other tools that we haven't had space to mention.

This Professional build of System Mechanic then goes even further, though. So you also get a complete antivirus and antispyware engine, which uses strong real-time protection to detect and block malware before it can damage your PC.

The package also includes a solid and reliable file recovery tool, that will restore accidentally deleted files, photos, music, documents, emails and more, from just about any drive or device.

And because occasionally you want to be sure that confidential data really has gone forever, then a secure deletion tool will quickly wipe the contents of a drive. Which means you can sell it without worrying that the buyer will be able to recover and view your user names, passwords or other personal details.

All this power doesn't make the program difficult to use, though. System Mechanic may have more than 50 performance-related tools and features, but it can also automatically scan for and locate any problems itself. If you want to zoom in on a particular area - disable this startup program, delete those junk files - then you're free to do so. But if you're in a hurry then you can just click "Repair All" and sit back as System Mechanic fixes everything, all on its own.

Whether you're a Windows expert or a PC novice, then, System Mechanic Professional has features which will appeal. But don't take our word for it: install the full-featured 30 day trial version, and find out exactly what this powerful suite can do for you.

What's new in System Mechanic Professional 16 (see changelog for more)?

- Much Faster System Scans. Dozens of tools and features are now deployed simultaneously to inspect your whole system at once.
- Redesigned Toolset. The most intelligent toolset ever designed searches in more places to root out more types of problems.
- More Frequent Updates. The new iolo Smart Updater delivers nearly instantaneous updates
- Next-gen TUDs. Tune-up Definitions is now Cloud-based for continuous, real-time updates
- Accommodates 4k Displays


With a complete library of utilities in one powerful package, there's no doubt that System Mechanic Professional 12 is staggeringly good value for money.

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+)
