Menu Uninstaller Pro 2.0.0
An easier way to uninstall programs

Menu Uninstaller Pro is a free replacement for the standard Windows "uninstall" applet, which provides several new ways to manage and remove installed applications.

The program adds an "Uninstall" entry to the context menu for every shortcut, for example. If you don't need something any more, right-click its shortcut, select "Uninstall" > Standard Uninstall and it'll be removed as usual.

Another option is to launch Menu Uninstaller Pro separately. Your installed programs are listed in a table, and selecting any of these displays its details in a grid. This includes icons for "Install Location" (click to open that folder in Explorer) and "Update Link" (click to go to the author's website, maybe - it doesn't always work).

You can also view your application's uninstall Registry keys with a click, which can help you spot other information. We noticed that GIMP's "QuietUninstallString" was "C:\Program Files\GIMP 2\uninst\unins000.exe" /SILENT , for example: that's the command you can issue to remove the program without seeing any prompts.

One annoying problem is that Menu Uninstaller Pro runs in a fixed sized window (around 900x240 pixels on our test PC). It can't be resized or maximised, and we were only able to view 7 installed programs at one time (expect lots of vertical scrolling).

You can at least reduce this problem by applying one of the built-in filters. You're able to view only large programs, toolbars, software updates, or whatever you've installed most recently. And whatever you choose, a Search box makes it easy to zoom in on particular applications.

If you find something you want to remove, selecting it and clicking Standard Uninstall launches its regular uninstaller. (And that's all: there's no ability to clean up any leftovers, or uninstall a program itself.)

There is also an option to batch-uninstall programs, although this didn't work as we expected. You can't select multiple programs in the usual way, holding down Ctrl and clicking each in turn. Instead you must check a "Multiple Uninstall" box, then check boxes for whatever you'd like to remove.

Menu Uninstaller Pro includes one or two other small extras, dotted around its menus and toolbars. A Log tries to record anything you've removed with Menu Uninstaller Pro (it doesn't always seem to work correctly); you can export your installed application list to a spreadsheet for later analysis; optional password protection helps to reduce the chance of your kids uninstalling all your software, and there's one-click access to System Restore to help deal with lesser problems.

Please note, you must register the program with your name and email address before it can be installed.

Verdict:

Menu Uninstaller Pro's fixed-size interface is annoying, especially if you've lots of installed programs and want to view as many as possible on one screen. Still, the program's ability to uninstall applications from their right-click menu means you may not have to worry about that. And the option to batch-uninstall software could be a time-saver, too.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.5

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.

Version 2.12.5 brings:

• Per chat custom notification settings and mute
• You can now include videos in your chat backups in Settings > Chats and Calls > Chat Backup
• Mark chats as unread or read with a swipe to the right
• Better support for VoiceOver
• Directly share contacts from the Contacts app and locations from Apple Maps to WhatsApp
• Lower the data usage used during WhatsApp calls in Settings > Chats and Calls 
• Earlier messages now load automatically as you scroll chats
• Improved design for cropping photos and videos
• Location messages now use a large map thumbnail
