Hitman Pro 3 (64-bit)
Add an extra antivirus detection layer to your PC

Hitman Pro 3 is what the authors call a "second opinion malware scanner", a security tool you can use alongside your existing antivirus package to improve security, without causing any conflicts.

The program scans your PC quickly, looking for suspicious files. Anything that appears dubious is referred to the Hitman Pro "Scan Cloud", and if the file isn't recognised, then it's uploaded, and scanned using a number of antivirus programs from 5 separate vendors. As we write, these are Prevx, Dr.Web, G Data, IKARUS and Emsisoft.

The verdict is then passed back to you, and if it's bad news, the infection will be quarantined right away.

It's an interesting approach, which should help pick up even the very latest threats while also keeping false positives to a minimum. And that's not all.

A particular advantage of Hitman Pro 3 is that it doesn't have to be installed, which immediately works to minimise conflicts. Just copy the program to a USB flash drive and use it whenever necessary.

And the program comes with an unrestricted free 30-day trial, so if you think your PC may have picked up something unpleasant then now is the perfect time to test it: just download Hitman Pro 3, run it, and see what the program can do for you.

Verdict:

An intelligent security tool that uses multiple antivirus engines to improve its accuracy

Unreal Engine 4.7.2.0

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."
