Mirekusoft Install Monitor
Fully uninstall applications, without leaving stray files or Registry keys behind

Mirekusoft Install Monitor watches the files added to your system by an application installation, allowing you cleanly remove the program later should you want to do so.

To try the program out, install it, then install some other application, and Install Monitor will automatically track the files, folders and Registry keys being added to your system. There are no extra dialogs, no lengthy snapshots taken, all this happens in the background (and in our case, without us even noticing).

You can see the results, though, by launching Install Monitor, selecting the newly-installed program and clicking the Contents button. This will display a tree of the various files, folders and Registry keys added by the program. Which actually might be useful in itself if you just want to know how a particular application has changed your PC.

If you want to fully remove that application, though, select it, click Content > Uninstall and Install Monitor will launch the regular uninstaller. Allow that to complete and watch as the list of files and Registry keys shrinks. And if there's anything left over, click "Clean up" to remove that, too, ensuring there's no junk left behind to clutter your hard drive.

In our tests this seemed to work very well, but as the "Clean up" dialog warns, "serious problems might occur" if the wrong items are removed. We wouldn't recommend you use this kind of tool unless you have a complete and recent system backup to hand.

Verdict:

An interesting and capable "clean uninstall" tool which seems very easy to use

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.61

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 2.17.61

- Search messages within a specific chat: Open any chat, tap the chat name at the top to go to Contact Info/Group Info, and then tap Chat Search.
- Design improvements for iOS 11.
- Post text-only updates to your status and they'll be visible for 24 hours. Just tap the pencil icon in the Status tab, type what you'd like to share, and pick a background color or font.
