Ashampoo WinOptimizer 12
Maintain, optimise and clean your PC with this all-in-one performance tool

Ashampoo WinOptimizer 12 is a very comprehensive PC cleanup, maintenance and optimisation suite.

If you're short of hard drive space ,for example, the program can remove leftover Windows and application files, surplus browser traces (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari), unnecessary duplicate files and broken shortcuts. A "Disk Space Explorer" helps you find other space-hogging folders, and the program can even defrag the drive when it's done to ensure you're getting the best possible performance.

An array of other speedup modules help to control your Windows startup programs, highlight and disable unnecessary services, optimise your internet connection, clean and defragment your Registry, remove unwanted applications, manage running processes, and more.

WinOptimizer includes a whole library of maintenance modules, including tools to benchmark your system speed, monitor drive health, control file associations, edit Explorer context menus, save and restore your desktop icon settings, and split, join, encrypt, decrypt, wipe and undelete files.

While this might sound complex, it really isn't. You can have WinOptimizer find and fix any issues on your PC in a couple of clicks, then leave it to maintain your system all on its own. Or you can take full control of any of its modules, whenever you need them. It's your call.

Version 12 brings new search algorithms for the Cleaner modules, improving results, while filters enhance your searches. A new File Manipulator can encrypt, decrypt, split or merge your chosen files. There's a brand new hard drive benchmark tool, improved SSD support, and it's all wrapped up in a revamped, easier-to-use interface.

Note that WinOptimizer 12 installs as a 10 day trial, with a further 30 days available if you register the program.


A comprehensive set of PC maintenance tools. Whether you like hands-on tweakery or prefer to set it and forget it, there's plenty for you here.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.12

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 2.12.12 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.
