Weeny Free Key Recovery 1.2
Quickly reveal Windows, Office and other product keys

Weeny Free Key Recovery will quickly detect and display your product keys for Windows, Office and a few other product keys (Visual Studio, SQL Server, Photoshop, AutoCAD, Battlefield, Call of Duty and so on).

It's not the longest of lists, and we're unsure how up-to-date the program's detection might be. The website only mentions Office 2003 and 2007, for instance, although it also worked just fine with our copy of Office 2010.

What's perhaps a little more interesting, though, is an option called "Scan Plus". Just click this button and the program will try more generic techniques to look for and recover product keys from any of your installed applications.

Does this work? Not consistently. Our test PC's report contained plenty of uninformative entries, including the following.

LinuxLive Advanced
skip_keyboard_detection = no

Apple Computer, Inc. QuickTime
ProResDecoderVersion = 2.0.0.3

WinMTR
License = GPL - GNU Public License

In amongst the nonsense, though, there were also quite a few real keys, for Macrium Reflect, VMware Workstation, Nero Platinum, Cyberlink PowerProducer and more.

This plainly isn't a substitute for using a program which offers true native support for finding these product keys, and can display them without all the extra junk. It's enough to move Weeny Free Key Recovery ahead of the more basic competition, though, and we'd recommend you give it a try.

Please note, though, the program will try to install a system addon and adjust your browser settings during setup. Pay close attention to what the installer is telling you, and be sure to click "Decline" if you're not interested.

Verdict:

The program only natively supports a few product keys, but its "Scan Plus" option extends this considerably. There's still no guarantee of great results, however it's certainly worth a try.

BEWARE : FULL of extra addons, Sweetlips IM software etc. Adds bits to IE and Firefox. Difficult to get rid of all the crap.

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.
