PowerTool 1.6
A powerful low-level Task Manager alternative

PowerTool is a capable set of utilities for helping you explore exactly what's running on your PC, and your overall system configuration. It's oriented towards PC experts who would like to use it for manually detecting, analysing and removing malware, but the program also has many other PC analysis and troubleshooting applications.

At its simplest, you can use PowerTool just to view particular areas of your system. There's a tab which lists your running processes, for instance. Others cover your Windows services, startup programs, scheduled tasks, loaded modules, currently active network connections, and more.

Elsewhere, a Registry tab acts as a mini-REGEDIT, while a Files tab is a very simple version of Explorer - very useful if the Windows equivalents no longer work for some reason. And a third tab not only displays your HOSTS file, it allows you to edit it as well.

Right-click various items in these listings, though, and you'll also find some far more advanced options. So you can force the termination of a program and delete it immediately afterwards, for instance - perfect when you're tackling malware. You're able to similarly stop and delete a service. And there's an option to search for process names online.

If you need more, there's plenty of extremely low-level information to help experts detect malware: Ring 0 hooks, Ring 3 hooks, all kinds of in-depth kernel details, even a disassembler to show you what's happening at a particular entry point.

And if you're a Windows expert then there's even an option to modify the protection of a particular memory block, perhaps so that you can manually alter it: hugely risky, but also very handy if you know what you're doing.

PowerTool x64 V1.6

  Add:
    1.Add remove filter driver.
    2.Add delete directory(Recursively delete).
    3.Add rename file.
 
 Modify:
    1. Enhanced force delete functions(can delete the files protected by antivirus software)
    2. Fix bug of view process API hook.
    3. Restore the [online update] function.

Verdict:

PowerTool is an excellent program for analysing your PC in great deal. It's aimed at experts, but if you're happy using Task Manager, say, then you'll find at least some of it useful

The program is in Chinese

This looks like an interesting program, and it got a good review. However, this packed version is in Simplified Chinese. Is there an English one? Cheers

Thanks James. The reviewer pointed to the directory of files, which we then updated to point to the individual file on our server. We've now updated this with the correct file. Try downloading now.

Your download link is wrong

Check the download link please... It sends you to a page where the product described above doesn't even appear and when you click on Epoolsoft you go to a page in Chinese that i didn't even tried to translate with Google... :(

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.
