AnVir Task Manager Free 7.5.2
Monitor and control everything running on your PC

Whether you're hoping to diagnose PC problems, or just improve your system's performance, discovering exactly which programs it's running right now is a good first step in the right direction. And yet Windows makes this difficult in the extreme, requiring you to run Task Manager, MSCONFIG, and a host of other apps before you can even begin to get an idea of what's going on.

Try AnVir Task Manager Free, though, and you'll find it's a very different story. Here you can view running applications, processes, services, drivers, even Windows startup programs from the same interface. And you can control them just as you would from the equivalent Windows tools, too: change an application's priority, stop or start a service, close a process, disable a startup program, and so on.

There are plenty of other options to display information about your system - the currently open files, DLLs, network and internet connections, and so on - but the fun really starts when you start to take control of running programs.

An advanced system monitor lets you limit CPU-hungry apps so they don't drain too many system resources, for instance. If an annoyingly unnecessary application keeps adding itself to your Startup programs then you can have AnVir Task Manager Free remove it automatically. And the program provides many ways to manipulate application windows, from setting transparency, to keeping them "always on top" or minimising them to the taskbar.

New features in v7.5 include:

- An option to store the settings for traffic monitoring.
- The buttons in the window titles and list of recent folders in the file open dialog in 64-bit applications.
- Ability to disable notifications about new programs of extended startup (by default).
- New page in the settings dialog that allows to quickly turn off the functions that affect the performance.

Verdict:

While not quite as powerful as Process Hacker, this is still a very capable PC management tool that comes packed with interesting features

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.
