System Cleaner
Clean, optimise and repair your PC with this familiar-looking maintenance suite

System Cleaner is the trial version of a PC cleanup, optimisation and maintenance suite.

The program comes with 12 modules, separated into categories like "Clean up & Repair", "Optimise & Improve" and "Privacy & Security" to help you locate the function you need. And these will help you to clean up your hard drive, fix Registry problems, locate duplicate files, shred confidential files so they can't be recovered, and control your Windows startup programs, amongst other things.

This looks much like any other suite of this type, then, and the individual tools don't really stand out, either. So the Disk Cleaner found very few junk files on our test PC, for instance, and the Startup Manager displayed less startup programs than you might find with some free tools.

Still, there are some plus points here.

A System Snapshot tool allows you to record your system state before or after some action, like installing a program, and will then report on any changes.

System Cleaner backs up any settings before it changes them to the "Rescue Manager", making it easy to reverse your last tweaking session, if it should be necessary.

The interface is clear and attractive - it's really very easy to use.

And the suite is amazingly compact, with the entire Program Files\Pointstone folder taking a mere 3.26 MB of hard drive space on our test PC.

Whether that justifies the $34.95 purchase price is another matter - but if you're curious, download the trial and find out for yourself.

What's new in 7.5.6.520?

- Fixed issue with clean progress bar, it was not being correctly calculated
- Rescue Manager: Added hotkey to delete backups when clicking the "Delete" button
- When repairing items, the respective category is displayed to provide more information to the user
- Significantly reduced flickering when switching between tabs
- Other minor fixes and improvements

Verdict:

System Cleaner is well presented and includes one or two useful features, but most people will probably get better cleanup and optimisation results by using the top freeware tools, instead

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."
