WSUS Offline Update 9.6
Easily update Microsoft Windows and Office installations, even if they're on PCs with no internet connection

WSUS Offline Update which allows you to update any computer running Windows or Office, without it needing to have an internet connection.

Essentially all you need to do is run the program on a PC which can get online, and tell it exactly what you'd like to download. Options include patches for Windows XP, Server 2003, Vista, 7, Server 2008 and 2008 R2, both regular 32 and 64-bit editions, as well as Office 2007, 2007 and 2010.

WSUS Offline Update will then download the updates for your chosen product, optionally copying the files to a USB stick, or even creating a suitable ISO image, ready for burning to a CD or DVD.

On the target computer, the UpdateInstaller.exe makes it easy to choose the update options you need (including the ability to back up your existing system files). And then a click on the Start button will quickly get your system right up to date.

Version 9.6 changes include:

- Ability added to enable .NET Framework 3.5 feature on Windows 8, 8.1 and Server 2012(R2) (x86/x64) systems
- Update for untrusted/revoked Root Certificates (rvkroots.exe) updated to v. 8,0,2195,0 (kb3050995, March 2015)
- Detection capability added for Windows 10
- Fix: DoUpdate.cmd script will now stop service 'Windows Update' (wuauserv) after scanning for missing updates to prevent system reboot prompts
- Fix: UpdateGenerator and UpdateInstaller dialog scaling calculation enhanced
- Fix: When launched by a foreign 32-bit host process on a 64-bit system, CleanupRecall.cmd script did not properly disable autologon
- Fix: Consolidated ExcludeList-superseded-exclude.txt

Verdict:

WSUS Offline Update has so many options that the interface can look a little intimidating at first, but if you've a PC with no internet connection, give it a try - it's actually quite straightforward and you'll soon be up-to-date

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

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 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
