Analyse your PC for performance problems

WhySoSlow is a smart tool which runs various low-level scans on your PC to try and determine any performance issues.

The program opens with a "Status" panel which acts as a monitor for your CPU speed, temperature, load, RAM usage, hard page faults, kernel and app responsiveness.

Click Analyze > Analyze and these performance indicators (and others) are assessed, and verdicts delivered on your CPU speed, temperature and load, memory load, hard page faults, application responsiveness, latencies, BIOS interrupt delays and more.

WhySoSlow also includes an "Alarm" which can display a warning if your CPU temperature gets too high.

A commercial Pro edition adds a more detailed report, extra settings, additional alarms, and more.


WhySoSlow's system analysis delivers some interesting figures, but we're not sure how useful they're going to be. It told us that our system's hard page fault rate ranged from 0 to 58.1 per second, for instance, and said this was "excellent". Great, but is that really true? How is the program evaluating it? Would you know what was a good or bad figure for your system, or what to do about it?

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.42

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 2.17.42

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
