Tweak-7
Clean, optimise and tweak your Windows 7 system with this all-in-one maintenance suite

Tweak-7 is a PC optimisation and cleanup suite that has been specifically designed to work with Windows 7.

The program includes many of the tools that you'd expect to find in any Windows speedup package, though. There are applets to clean and defragment your Registry, find and delete junk files or broken shortcuts, optimise your internet connection, and disable unnecessary Windows startup programs, for instance.

Tweak-7 does provide some extra tools that you won't see in most of the competition, though. So for example it can turn up to 256MB of your PCs memory into a RAM disc (on 32-bit Windows PCs), which can help to improve the performance of some applications. And a security applet helps to lock down your PC by restricting access to the applications or folders you specify.

Most of Tweak-7 is dedicated to Windows tweaks, however. The program provides easy access to useful options for your hard drive, CPU, Windows system folders, User Account Control, Windows restrictions, your visual settings, Internet Explorer, Outlook and more.

Unfortunately not all of these tweaks are effective. Tweak-7 includes a supposed "CPU system cache optimisation" that hasn't done anything useful in years, for example.

And the program's advice is occasionally counter-productive. It suggests that "sometimes it makes sense" to delete the Windows prefetching files, for instance, but this will only slow you down.

Still, there are plenty of tools on offer here, so if you're interested in optimising your Windows 7 system then Tweak-7 can do a lot to help.

Verdict:

Tweak-7 has many useful cleanup and optimisation features, but it also includes a few ineffective options that are best avoided

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.61

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.
