Eusing Free Registry Defrag
Compress the registry to boost performance with Eusing Free Registry Defrag

Defragmentation is something that most computer users will be familiar with and with most readily associate with hard drives. But the same problem of fragmentation can affect the registry, and this in turn can cause a reduction in system performance. While Windows includes a built in utility for defragmenting your hard drive, you will need to turn to third party tools such as Eusing Free Registry Defrag if you would like to take care of the registry as well.

Having a bloated registry has a number of side-effects. The most obvious result is that your registry is physically larger and therefore occupies more space in memory leaving less available to other programs. A larger registry also takes longer to load into memory so boot times are increased, and the fact that Windows is constantly referring to the registry, everything else is going to be slowed down as your operating system has to search for the entries it needs.

Eusing Free Registry Defrag performs a very quick analysis of the state of your registry and determines whether there is any scope to reduce the size of its component hives. Unlike defragmenting your hard drive, when it comes to working with the registry it is necessary to restart your computer to complete the process of optimization, but it is still completed fairly quickly and you should benefit from some noticeable improvements.

Any software that works directly with the registry is potentially harmful to your computer – however well-intentioned it might be – so it is good to see that Eusing Free Registry Defrag includes the option of creating a system restore point before anything is carried out so you have a backup plan in case anything should go wrong. The program is available completely free of charge, but you will be asked to obtain a registration code when you first launch it. You are free to use the program without paying – just click the Skip button - but if you would like to help fund development, you are asked to make a donation.

Verdict:

It’s not something you need to run all that often in all likelihood, but this is a handy tool to have around that seems to bring about real improvements.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.41

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 2.17.41

• Pin chats to the top of your chat list, so you can quickly find them. Just swipe right on a chat and tap the pin icon.
• You can now send documents of any type. To send a document, open a chat, tap attach — document. 
• When you receive multiple photos, you can now tap and hold on the group of photos to quickly forward or delete all of them.
