Find out when a PC was turned on and off

TurnedOnTimesView is a small portable tool which displays the details of when a PC has been turned on or off (sometimes with a reason), perhaps for the last few weeks.

This has some obvious uses for system monitoring. If you're wondering whether someone's been using the family PC in the middle of the night, for instance, TurnedOnTimesView could offer some clues. And there's no need to install any monitoring component, or add an extra icon to your system tray - the program grabs the information it needs from your PC's event logs, with no need to run anything else at all.

The TurnedOnTimesView report also displays information which can help with PC troubleshooting, though. You'll see how long the system typically remains on between restarts, for instance; the process responsible for a restart, the reason, if available ("system failure", say, or "software installation"), and a "shutdown code" which might also offer some clues.

As usual with NirSoft tools, all this information is displayed in a fully sortable table. Clicking any column header - "Shutdown Type", say - will sort the report by that field, making it quick and easy to identify whatever information you need. And there's an option to save the report in TXT, CSV, HTML and other formats, for quick reference later.

Version 1.30:

on 1.30:

Added 'Last System Event Time' column, which displays the time of the last system event before the computer was turned off. This column is useful when there is no shutdown event and the 'Shutdown Time' column is empty.
When there is no shutdown event ('Shutdown Time' is empty), the duration is now calculated according to the 'Last System Event Time'.
When event 41 from Microsoft-Windows-Kernel-Power is detected ('The system has rebooted without cleanly shutting down first'), the 'Shutdown Type' column now displays 'Unexpected Shutdown'.
Fixed issue: Under certain circumstances, TurnedOnTimesView detected the turn on/off events incorrectly because the algorithm assumes that the events are sorted by their timestamp, but in some cases they are not... TurnedOnTimesView now sorts the events by their timestamp before processing them to ensure that the turn off/on detection algorithm works correctly. Be aware that due to this change the loading process might be slower and consume more memory.
Added 'Save All' (Shift+Ctrl+S).

Verdict:

While it's a fairly niche program, TurnedOnTimesView does provide a simple way to understand when a PC is being used

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

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 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
