Autorun Organizer
Manage your Windows startup programs

Autorun Organizer is a tool for managing program set up to launch when Windows starts. There's a lot of competition in this area, but don't click "Back" just yet: this one is better than most.

The program checks a good range of startup locations, for instance: the Startup folder, the Registry, Task Scheduler. It separates your autorun programs into "recently added" and "old" sections, making it easier to spot anything you've just installed. And broken startup entries (anything where the file no longer exists) are highlighted in red, helping you to recognise potential problems in seconds.

Right-click a startup program and you're able to access its properties, view the startup location (the Registry location/ Startup folder/ Task Scheduler), open the program's folder, even run a web search.

If you need more help in figuring out a startup application's usefulness, there's an option to view its popularity with other users. (This is turned off by default for privacy reasons, but you can restore it with a click.)

Could any of these startup programs be malicious? Unlike most similar applications, Autorun Organizer doesn't leave you wondering this for yourself. VirusTotal integration means there's an option to check them with all the leading antivirus engines.

Once all this research is complete, useless startup items can quickly be removed. If you're not sure about a program, there's an option to temporarily disable it. Or you can opt to delay its launch time, which could make your system feel more responsive when it first starts.

In a final thoughtful touch, Autorun Organizer displays a chart of recent "system load times" below the startup item list. This provides an immediate view of your current performance, and will also show you how effective (or otherwise) any of your startup tweaks have been.

Verdict:

A nicely designed startup program manager with some smart and effective features

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
