Manage any Windows service from the system tray

ServiceTray is a free tool which is able to start, stop, restart and generally monitor any single Windows service from your system tray.

A clear and simple setup dialog allows you to choose the service to be monitored, and your preferred system tray icon. If you'd like the program to be running all the time, a shortcut can be added to your Startup folder. Otherwise it generates a shortcut on the desktop, where you launch it as required.

Once active, ServiceTray keeps you up-to-date by displaying alerts if your service starts or stops unexpectedly. Its icon colour also indicates the service's state: green means running, red means stopped, and yellow means it's somewhere in between (starting or stopping, usually).

Double-clicking the icon displays a more detailed report, including the service process ID, session, CPU and RAM usage, start and up time.

Right-clicking the ServiceTray icon displays the usual Start, Stop and Restart options. A "Switch to Session 0" feature may display messages from interactive services, and there are shortcuts to some related Control Panel applets (Services, Task Manager, Event Viewer).

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.
