Belarc Advisor
Create a report packed with useful system information

Belarc Advisor is a powerful system information tool that provides genuinely useful details on every aspect of your PC.

The program doesn't just tell you how much RAM you've got installed, for instance: it also reports the size of each individual memory stick, and tells you if you've any RAM slots free, very helpful if you're planning a memory upgrade (and much easier than opening your case to take a look). Other hardware-related information listed on the report include your CPU type, motherboard model, BIOS date, and graphics card details.

Belarc Advisor runs some handy security checks, too. It'll check to make sure you've antivirus protection installed, for example, that it's up-to-date and real-time protection is enabled. And the program will also list all your installed Microsoft security patches, and warn you if any are missing.

The report on your installed applications is particularly useful, as it uses icons to highlight programs that haven't been used for a very long time (perhaps more than a year). If you notice apps you're no longer using, and you're sure will not be needed again, then uninstall them to free up hard drive space and maybe a few other system resources.

But our favourite part of the Belarc Advisor report has to be the Software Licences section, where the program displays the licence keys for many popular applications (Adobe, CyberLink, Electronic Arts, Microsoft, Nero, and many other companies are supposed). Print out the report, and keep it safe: if you lose the original CDs for an app then these details will save you a lot of hassle, and maybe even money.

Verdict:

A must-have system information tool, especially if you've lots of applications and you're always losing software keys. Download it immediately

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.102

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 2.18.102 

• Introducing stickers! You can now download and send expressive stickers in chats. Tap the new "sticker" icon while in a chat to get started. You can also tap the "+" icon to download more sticker packs. If you'd like to create your own stickers for WhatsApp, visit whatsapp.com/stickers to get started.
• You can now easily search for GIFs right from within a chat. Just tap the "sticker" icon in a chat and then tap the "GIF" icon at the bottom.
• Consecutive Voice Messages will now play in sequence, so you don't have to press play on each message.
