Wise Registry Cleaner Free
Fix Registry problems with a single click, but be prepared for side-effects

The most dangerous thing about using a Registry cleaning tool is to believe the hype that comes with it: if you take what you read as fact, running the tool and letting it delete dozens – if not hundreds – of supposedly obsolete entries will help you speed up your PC. On a severely clogged up computer this myth might even be proved true after the first couple of scans, but then strange things start to happen, which can’t be traced to an obvious cause and which ultimately cause more frustration than persevering with a slow computer.

Registry cleaning tools should be treated with caution, and Wise Registry Cleaner Free at least does that, allowing you to create both a System Restore point and backup of your Registry before you start using the program. The program will then scan your system for problematic entries and provide you with a summary where it tells you how many of these can be “safely” removed, and which ones should be left alone. Click Fix and the program automatically backs up the keys about to be removed, so if problems do occur, you can then restore your backup quickly and easily. Despite these fail-safes, we still recommend going through each of the categories manually reviewing what’s been marked for deletion, and unticking anything you don’t immediately recognise.

After deleting these entries, you’ll notice a defrag button: click this and the Registry files will be compacted and defragmented when you next start your PC – if performance can be improved, it’s here that it’ll actually happen, and you don’t need to delete any Registry entries to do so.

Version 9.63.629 brings (Changelog):

Improved the optimization feature for SSD hard drives.
Minor GUI improvements.
Minor bug fixes.

Verdict:

Competent Registry cleaning tool, with plenty of fail-safes should the program prove – like many other Registry cleaners – to be overzealous.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.51

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 2.18.51

• When you receive a link to an Instagram or Facebook video, you can now play it right within WhatsApp. With picture-in-picture, you can also keep watching the video while you navigate to another chat.
• If you're a group admin, you can now remove admin rights from other participants. Select the admin in "Group Info" and tap "Dismiss As Admin."
• Group admins can now choose who can change a group's subject, icon and description by going to "Group Info" and tapping "Group Settings."
