G Data AntiVirus 2014
Detect and remove the maximum malware with this super-accurate security tool

G Data AntiVirus 2014 is an interesting security package that combines two antivirus engines for enhanced accuracy.

Sounds good, and not just in theory - independent labs AV Comparatives ran a major on-demand test of thirteen antivirus packages in March 2013, and G Data's engine came top of the list, detecting 99.9% of the malware samples used.

Running two antivirus engines does have a small impact on performance, but the program compensates by using whitelisting techniques to make better decisions about which files must be scanned, and which can be ignored, noticeably improving performance. Although if you'd rather not be hassled by virus scans when you're working, you can always schedule them to run when your PC is idle, which means you'll barely notice the program at all.

As well as on-demand scanning, you also get comprehensive real-time protection, which combines behaviour monitoring, heuristics and cloud-based technologies to detect even brand new, undiscovered threats.

The 2014 edition features an improved BankGuard, G Data's technology for protecting your online banking and shopping transactions.

A new Autostartmanager optimises your system to improve boot times.

And all this is presented in a revamped, simplified interface, making the program much easier to use.

Verdict:

It''s not exactly packed with features, but G Data AntiVirus 2014's accuracy and extremely high detection rates make it an excellent security choice

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."
