TaskInfo 10.0.0.336
Discover everything you'll ever need to know about the processes running on your PC with this powerful system information tool

TaskInfo is a comprehensive system information tool that gives you detailed information on everything that's running on your PC.

Too detailed, perhaps. When you launch the program, its main screen looks a little like Task Manager, listing running processes and giving you information about them on RAM, memory and I/O use, threads, I/O activity and more. But the problem is that TaskInfo spreads this across 36 columns by default, all of which are updated in real-time, while 9 mini graphs plot RAM use, I/O, network activity and more. It's all rather messy and intimidating, although you can at least trim things down by removing columns that aren't of interest, so you can focus on more important details.

Click any process in the list and you can read more about it: the DLLs it's using, files and handles it has open, GDI objects, threads, and more.

And a second tabbed dialog over on the right displays more general system data: a basic CPU and RAM use summary, CPU system information, a list of open files, details on your open network connections, and more.

TaskInfo isn't just about reporting on your system; right-click a process and you can carry out actions on it. So you can suspend, restart or terminate your item of choice. There are options to view its file properties, search for the file name online, or view any text string its executable file contains. And a powerful Process CPU Usage option not only allows you to tweak process priority boost, affinity and priority, but can also set these "persistently": the program remembers your settings and will always apply them to that process in future.

Verdict:

The messy interface makes it sometimes awkward to use, but TaskInfo is a powerful tool, more so in some ways than competitors like Process Explorer and Process Hacker. Worth a look, then, but strictly for Windows experts only

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.
