EventLogSourcesView 1.00 (32-bit)
What's using your event logs? NirSoft's tool explains all

If a Windows application is misbehaving then browsing your event logs can sometimes tell you more, as they'll display all kinds of error and status messages that aren't visible any other way.

Does your application actually use the event logs to record anything, though? Most programs don't bother to tell you, and Windows won't either - but that's where the tiny EventLogSourcesView comes in.

Launch this portable program and it'll display a complete list of all the event log sources (all the components which are logging events) on your system: the source name, event type ("Application", "System" and so on), "Registry Modified" (the date when the component was added to your PC), relevant file names, and more.

By default this includes a lot of Windows components, but if you click the "Registry Modified" column header to sort by installation date, then scroll to the bottom of the report, it'll become easier to understand. You'll see all recently added event log sources, and if your problem application is on the list, then you'll know that it's at least capable of adding information to your logs.


It's one of NirSoft's more technical tools, but EventLogSourcesView is still useful as a quick way of understanding which of your applications might make use of the event logs

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.11

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.

Version 2.12.11 brings:

• Links that you share or receive will now include a rich preview. When sending a link, you have the option to not include a rich preview.
• Additional 3D Touch features: You can now quickly Peek and Pop chats.
• Redesigned Settings tab. 
• You can now view all your starred messages across all your chats in Settings — Starred Messages.
