DiffView
Display recent changes to your files and Registry

DiffView is a very small portable tool which can scan your system to detect and display recent changes to your system files or Registry.

File and Registry trees make it easy to choose exactly what you'd like to check: your User folders, say, or the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System keys.

And you can choose how recent any changes should be, too. Enter "5" in the "Diff time" box, say, and the program will only look for items which have been created or modified in the last 5 minutes.

With the configuration done, all you have to do is click "Scan files" or "Scan reg", depending what you're doing, and wait for the results. This can take a while if you're scanning the entire Registry - so you might want to tag an extra 5 minutes onto your "Diff time" figure to make up for that - but be patient, it will finish eventually.

And once the process is complete, DiffView displays a tree view report of your system, instantly highlighting any recent changes in the areas you've specified.

Verdict:

DiffView can be a useful tool for highlighting what's been happening recently on your PC, but it's not always reliable - we found it repeatedly crashed on one test PC.

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+)
