Remove unwanted software with GeekUninstaller

You would think that removing programs you no longer need from your hard drive would be easy enough. After all, it should amount to little more than accessing the Add or Remove Programs Control Panel and selecting the relevant application from the list, or using a program’s readymade uninstaller. But in practice, there are often problems that you may encounter. A program may refuse to uninstall, or it may leave behind remnants of itself.

GeekUninstaller is a free uninstaller tool that can be used to quickly and easily remove all traces of unwanted software from your computer. It initially works like the Control Panel, displaying a list of installed programs and you can then select anything you do not need ready for uninstallation. You also have the option of modifying an installation so you can add or remove components as required. Should you run into any problems, you can use the Force Removal option instead.

Whichever route you go down, the program will perform a deep scan of your system to check for software remains that should be removed and you also have the ability to remove programs from the uninstallation list. This can be used to prevent other people from removing software, or to clean up the uninstaller list that has accumulated over time.

While GeekUninstaller offers few dazzling features, everything is very simply presented and the app is incredibly easy to use. If you want to get hands-on with a particular program, you can jump straight to the relevant section of the registry for some tinkering, and the fact that GeekUninstaller is a portable app means that it is an ideal candidate for popping on a USB drive.

Version 1.4.0.86 changes (see changelog for more):

- Number of small fixes. Translations update

Verdict:

A handy tool for keeping your hard drive in good shape, this is a great alternative to the Control Panel applet and much better featured.

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+)
