ZHPCleaner 2017
Detect and remove browser hijackers, adware, more

ZHPCleaner is a free portable tool which can detect and remove adware, browser hijackers, some toolbars and more.

The program is very convenient to use. There's no installation, it doesn't even arrive in a ZIP file, you just download, run and hit "Scan".

You might see occasional dialogs and prompts during the scan, and these aren't always straightforward. "Have you installed this server?", the program asked, displaying a couple of IP addresses we didn't recognise. What server? ZHPCleaner didn't explain, so we clicked "No" and waited to see what would happen.

Once the scan completes, the program becomes more straightforward. There are lists of "problem" settings and possible adware traces, all checked by default, but you're free to browse and clear anything you'd like to keep. (Our "Server" turned out to be the DNS servers of an uninstalled VPN service, so we allowed them to be deleted.)

Hit the "Repair" button when you're ready and ZHPCleaner cleans any selected settings or traces, prompting you to reboot to ensure any active adware is removed.

Verdict:

ZHPCleaner seems to be a thorough PC cleaner which delves deep into your Registry and browser settings, locating and removing many signs of trouble. But beware, as with all similar tools there's a possibility of accidentally wiping something important. Be sure to check exactly what the program is going to do before you click "Repair", and don't use ZHPCleaner anywhere that isn't fully backed-up.

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.
