GIGATweaker
Tweak Windows to your liking and boost performance with GIGATweaker

Windows tweakers around the world quickly became fans of TweakUI, the tweaking tool developed by the team behind Windows. Users of Windows 7 were disappointed to find that a version compatible with their operating system was not released, and this is where GIGATweaker comes into play.

This is a tweak tool in the classic sense of the word, making it possible to change a huge number of system settings from a single interface and access settings that would otherwise be hidden. When the program is launched you will be prompted to create a System Restore point so any changes you make can be reversed if necessary.

In addition to a huge number of tweak relating to the look of Windows and the option to place restrictions in place to prevent unwanted changes to your computer, GIGATweak also includes a startup manager that can be used to help boost performance.

Each of the tweak are neatly categorised to make it easy to find what you are looking for. Once tweaks have been put in place, GIGATweak includes the option to restart Explorer so you can see them in effect immediately without the need to restart Windows. With the potential to genuinely improve performance free of charge and customise Windows to your liking, this is a wonderful utility.
 

Verdict:

Reliable tweaking tools that are free of charge area little thin on the ground for Windows 7, but GIGATweak bucks the trend.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.110

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 2.18.110 

• It’s now easier to start group voice and video calls. Just tap the call button in groups or select "New group call" when starting a new call in the calls tab. Group calls support up to 4 participants.
