Kingsoft PC Doctor 2.7
Monitor, repair and speed up your PC

Kingsoft PC Doctor offers a suite of tools to optimise, clean and secure your PC.

Click the Optimizer button, for instance, and you'll find modules to help you take control of your startup programs and Windows services. Unlike many similar tools, PC Doctor doesn't simply list what's installed on your PC: it also offers recommendations on which programs and services can be safely deleted.

The hard drive cleaning options are similarly thorough. PC Doctor doesn't just delete your temporary folders and web browser cache; it also highlights a great deal of Windows junk (more than CCleaner, on our test PC). The Trace Cleaner module wipes away your activity histories in Windows and many applications; the OS Thinner lists Windows files which can safely be removed (sample music, pictures, videos and more); and the Large Files tab lists the 100 largest files on your system drive, for a quick look at where your drive space has gone.

And there are plenty of useful extras. The Traffic Monitor displays a graphical view of your open internet connections, for instance, while a tiny activity monitor shows your current internet upload and download speeds, CPU and RAM-hogging applications, and more.

It's not all good news, though, particularly on the security side. The program aims to detect Trojans and dangerous plugins, for instance, but just displayed a long list of false positives on our test PC. Users can tell Kingsoft about this, and so we'd expect its accuracy to improve over time, but at the moment the anti-malware section of the program is too unreliable to be of any use.

Verdict:

Kingsoft PC Doctor is a capable hard drive cleaner, and does a good job of helping you optimise your startup programs and services. The security features are best avoided right now, though, and overall the program isn't yet suitable for inexperienced users: you need to know what you're doing, to be able to review all its recommendations and spot any which might not be correct.

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
