SetACL Studio
View and manage all your Windows permissions

SetACL Studio is an industrial-strength tool for managing the security permissions of files, folders, registry keys, printers, drives, network shares, services and more.

Every object type is accessible from its own tree in a left-hand sidebar. On our test system, for instance, we could expand the file system, or view the printers listed below that, scroll down to the Registry or see our Windows services.

Clicking on any object displays its security details in the left-hand pane. For example, selecting C:\Temp told us that the folder was owned by Administrators, which is why we could freely work in that folder; selecting C:\Windows showed it was owned by TrustedInstaller, which is why it's more restricted.

Handily, you're able to browse folders and directories regardless of Windows security settings. Explorer displayed an "Access denied" message when we clicked on C:\System Volume Information, but SetACL Studio listed its contents and enabled renaming and deleting any object, as well as creating new folders.

Of course you can change and reset individual permissions, too, for the current object and optionally any children.

There's even an "Undo" option in case you make a mistake, although beware: that may not be enough to save you in every situation. Changing system permissions can have serious consequences, and don't even think of trying it unless you know exactly what you're doing and the system is fully backed-up.

Please note, SetACL Studio used to be a commercial product and still displays itself as a 30-day trial after installation. But the developer has made it free for both commercial and personal use, and provided this key to unlock the program: RUMH5R-PREMM7-W38EA5-QTSQZ1-1HA1A6-CTXHUQ

Verdict:

SetACL Studio provides a powerful one-stop way to browse and change Windows security permissions. Anyone might find it a useful way to view inaccessible folders or Registry keys, but be careful if you start making changes. Any mistakes could seriously damage your PC.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.23

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.

What's New in Version 2.17.2?

- You can now tap send on messages when you don't have a connection. Messages will be queued up and sent when your phone regains a connection. 
- Redesigned storage usage screen lets you manage your phone's storage space by clearing certain message types, like videos, from specific chats (Settings -- Data and Storage Usage -- Storage Usage).
- Send up to 30 photo or videos at once now.
