Trend Micro Browser Guard 2010
Protect yourself from malicious web pages with this handy IE plugin

Trend Micro Browser Guard 2010 is an Internet Explorer plug-in that monitors the pages you visit to protect you from malicious JavaScript.

The program works entirely automatically, so there are no complex settings to consider, no configuration worries at all. Just install it and Browser Guard will analyse any JavaScript on the pages you visit, detecting buffer overflow and heap spray attacks, blocking attempts to execute shell code, and generally keeping you just a little safer online.

While you might expect this extra layer of protection would slow down your browsing a little, there was no noticeable change on our test PC (and IE told us the add-on took a mere 0.03 seconds to launch). If you're running an old underpowered laptop then maybe you'll see a performance impact, but otherwise there are unlikely to be any problems.

Otherwise the program seems very compatible, running on 32 or 64-bit Windows XP, Vista or 7, and all versions of Internet Explorer from 6 to 9.0, and is most unlikely to conflict with any other security software. So if you use IE, even only occasionally, then Browser Guard 2010 offers an easy way to gain a little extra protection from malicious websites.

Verdict:

A valuable extra layer of protection for your IE-related online activities

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
