Reliably create a system restore point from the command line

QuickSystemRestore is a command line tool with a single purpose: to create a System Restore point.

While that sounds simple enough, the program is actually a little smarter than it first appears. Because if the creation fails for some reason - System Restore has been turned off, say, or it's broken for some reason - then it'll try to repair your system to get everything working again.

And the repairs are surprisingly thorough. So QuickSystemRestore will look for policy settings which might be causing a problem, say, and restart the necessary services. It'll try to repair System Restore, as well as the WMI service, and if a Restore Point still can't be created, will prompt you to reboot your PC.

Please note, in order for this to work, you must run QuickSystemRestore as an administrator. And, annoyingly, if you forget the program won't point this out. Rather, it'll complain that System Restore isn't working, which is rather misleading.

If you set up and run the program correctly, though, this won't be an issue, and QuickSystemRestore will create restore points on command whenever you feel it's necessary.

Verdict:

The program needs to recognise when it doesn't have the necessary permissions to run properly, but otherwise QuickSystemRestore provides an easy way to create Restore Points on demand

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.
