Baidu PC Faster
A one-stop PC speedup and maintenance suite

Baidu PC Faster is a free PC optimisation, cleanup and maintenance suite.

The program has all the regular speedup tools, with modules to remove junk files, clean the Registry, wipe browser and application histories, control your Windows startup programs, optimise your internet connection, free up system resources, and more.

These modules were of variable quality. The Disk Cleaner found more leftovers than CCleaner on our test PC: impressive. But the "Plugin Cleaner" found a "malicious plugin" that we couldn't even see was on our system. And it didn't tell us where the "plugin" was being used (a browser, Office, something else).

The App Store is a more unusual extra, an easy way to find and install further programs. If you need an Office-type application, for example, you might click the "Business" category, browse to LibreOffice, click "Install", and just wait: Baidu PC Faster will download the latest version and launch its installer for you.

The integrated Virus Scanner is another ingredient you won't find in most maintenance suites. It's not a market leader - AV-Comparative's October 2014 Real World Protection Test gave the Baidu engine a 94.1% protection rate, 15th out of 22 - and wouldn't be our first choice, but it's still useful as a second line scanner.

Bonus extras include a defrag module, file wipe and undelete tools, a context menu editor, LSP repair tool, and more. Some of these are basic, but a few are worth having, including a new tool to turn your PC into a wifi hotspot.

Baidu PC Faster has a few issues. Some modules are rather limited; it's a little intrusive, adding three services to our test PC which were running all the time; and although the English language translation has improved vastly, there's still more to do. (On reboot, a pop-up reminder of files to be cleaned appeared. A list box offered two options, both of them in another character set which we were unable to read.)

Version (full version history):
    - Added scanning and uninstalling features for programs which lack their own uninstaller
    - Optimized the interface of the scanning process
    - Added a WiFi Hotspot feature—“Send file to Mobile” which can make you send file from PC to mobile.
    - Optimized WiFi Hotspot feature to give you a better user experience


Baidu PC Faster is an easy-to-use PC speedup suite with some genuinely effective features. Its tools vary in their quality, though, and you should explore them carefully to find out what works for you, and what really doesn't.

I took a chance...

So far it's been fine, I even added their Avira based virus protection. The program seems lightweight and hasn't caused any problems.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.6

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 2.12.6 brings:

• Whatsapp web - send and receive messages from your computer browser!
