Rizone DVD Repair is a simple tool that will fix common CD or DVD drive problems at a click.

If Windows no longer recognises your DVD drive, for instance, or sees that drive but doesn't think it's writeable (it's identified as a DVD-ROM) then the program may be able to help. This issue is usually down to faulty filter drivers, and DVD Repair will delete those references, hopefully fixing the problem (though you may need to reboot first).

Of course if the issue isn't related to your filter drivers, then using DVD Repair may cause problems in itself, as whatever application installed those drivers may no longer work correctly. Use with care, and ideally create a system restore point immediately before running the program, so you can recover the original driver settings if DVD Repair doesn't help.

As a bonus, the program can optionally restore your autorun settings, and try to block autorun.inf files from running at all. This can be a mild inconvenience - you'll have to launch disc setup programs manually from now on - but will also improve your security, as it prevents software from running without your permission. (You don't really want your PC running unknown software on whatever USB key is plugged into it, do you?)

Verdict:

An easy-to-use portable tool that will solve many odd DVD drive issues. Though beware, it can also cause some of its own - back up your settings with System Restore before you run it

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.13

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.
