Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller 15
Easily uninstall all copies of Flash on your PC

The Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller is a tiny portable tool which will quickly remove all copies of Flash from every browser on your PC.

For the program to work properly you must first close every application which is currently using Flash, though. And that can be a problem, as there may be more than you think. So we would shut down everything non-critical, just to be safe: every regular application which might be running, and everything in your system tray which isn't security related.

With that done, though, everything else is relatively straightforward. Just launch the program, click Uninstall, and watch. A progress bar will show what's happening, and within a few seconds you should see a message "Adobe Flash Player uninstalled successfully". Click "Done", and the program will close.

And if you want to be thorough, you should now probably remove any remaining Flash-related files and folders. Hold down the Windows key and press R to launch the Run box, copy and paste the path \Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash there, click OK to open that folder, and delete all the files and folders there.

Repeat the process to delete the contents of the folders \Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash, %appdata%\Adobe\Flash Player and %appdata%\Macromedia\Flash Player.

And when you're happy, reboot your PC and Flash should now have disappeared. Although if you'd like to be sure, then it may be wise to visit Adobe's online Flash version checker. If it shows you a blank box, rather than a version number, than all is well. And if you want to reinstall Flash at some later date then the same page explains precisely what you need to do.

Verdict:

We're not quite sure why it leaves you to clean up the various Flash "temporary" files and folders, but otherwise the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller is certainly very easy to use

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.
