AlomWare Reset
Quickly refresh your PC, without needing to reboot

If your PC seems slow after working on it for a while, you could reboot to get a clean start. But it might take a while, with maybe minutes of hard drive thrashing as various processes restart.

AlomWare Reset tries to achieve a similar effect by cleaning up your system, but without a full restart, and so runs to completion in just a few seconds.

With one click, AlomWare closes visible applications and open windows; ends non-system processes; frees and optimizes memory; clears the clipboard; turns NumLock on; relaunches Startup apps which aren't already running; wakes sleeping drives, and optionally clears your Recent Documents lists, empties the Recycle Bin and removes the junk from your Temp folders.

This is all easy enough to use, too. Launch the program, and in the trial version a copyright message is displayed until you click it (you don't have this delay once you buy a licence). A warning window explains what's about to happen, and offers a few options (you might kill some custom processes, or lock your PC after resetting). Click "Reset now" and the program does its work. Simple.

What's new? (Changelog)

- Bug fix: Trial message was showing for paid users.
- Internal fixes and optimizations.
- Minor changes to the manual.

Verdict:

AlomWare Reset really is a quick way to free up RAM and other system resources, and it's certainly faster than rebooting. We're not sure if it's worth the money - especially as you could achieve similar results with a batch file - but there's no adware in the trial build, so if you like the idea then it's easy to try it for yourself.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.82

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 2.17.81
