WinMend Registry Defrag
Optimise and tune your Registry with this free defragmentation tool

WinMend Registry Defrag is a free Registry optimisation tool.

Allow the program to scan your Registry and it'll look holes for left by deleted Registry keys. A report will then reveal the extent of these, and explain how a quick defrag might benefit your PC. On our test system, for example, we were told the Registry could be reduced in size by 5,432KB, which would reportedly improve the speed of Registry access by 8%. And clicking the Defrag button was enough to make this happen.

You shouldn't expect any noticeable change in performance as a result of this. The Registry is a large database, defragging will save only a little space, and frequently used keys will be held in memory anyway, so access times are already minimal.

Still, Registry defragging will save a small amount of RAM and hard drive space, and if you're also applying other tweaks across your system then they'll all add up.

Please note, however: while we had no problems with WinMend Registry Defrag, you need to be careful of any program that's reorganising your Registry in such a fundamental way. Don't use this unless System Restore is running, you know how to use it, and you've a full backup to hand in case of emergencies.


While it won't make a significant difference to your PCs performance, WinMend Registry Defrag may still be worth a try, especially if you use a Registry cleaner that doesn't include a defrag option

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.20

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 2.19.20 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
