Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10
Quickly disinfect virus-ridden PCs

Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 is a free bootable environment that will detect and remove malware from a badly infected PC.

The system comes as an ISO image. Burn this to a DVD and you should be able to boot your PC from it. If your system is already infected with malware then this makes it far more likely that you'll be able to remove it successfully, as the malware won't be running and so cannot apply any tricks to hide from the scan, or prevent itself from being deleted.

Of course the problem with this approach is that a DVD will always start with the same virus database. Fortunately Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 will detect and recognise any network connection, so if you're connected to a router then it's able to go online and download the latest virus definitions.

After that the system works much like any other antivirus tool. Click the Objects Scan tab, choose to scan your PC, and Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 will crawl over your hard drive looking for malware and removing anything it finds.

Please note, if you'd prefer to install Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10 to a USB flash drive, rather than a DVD, then that may possible. With a little work, at least. Check this Kaspersky support page for the instructions you need.

Verdict:

Every PC owner needs a disk or two like this, just in case their regular antivirus tool is caught out by a brand new threat. Go download it immediately

Unreal Engine 4.8

Free Full Commercial Software

Unreal Engine is Epic Games' game engine, a powerful suite of tools for developing anything from basic 2D games to professional RPGs, first person shooters and whatever else you like.

Wide standards support - DirectX, OpenGL, JavaScript/ WebGL - means your projects can be targeted to almost any platform: consoles, iOS, Android, Windows, OS X, Linux, HTML5 browsers and more.

There's a vast amount to learn, of course, and that's even before you start building your game. But there's plenty of documentation, tutorials, demos and sample projects to point you in the right direction.

The package is now entirely free, too - no annoying limitations, nag screens or anything else. Epic now only requires that you pay a 5% royalty after the first $3,000 of revenue per product per quarter. And even then, you "pay no royalty for film projects, contracting and consulting projects such as architecture, simulation and visualization."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
