Kingsoft PC Doctor 2.7
Monitor, repair and speed up your PC

Kingsoft PC Doctor offers a suite of tools to optimise, clean and secure your PC.

Click the Optimizer button, for instance, and you'll find modules to help you take control of your startup programs and Windows services. Unlike many similar tools, PC Doctor doesn't simply list what's installed on your PC: it also offers recommendations on which programs and services can be safely deleted.

The hard drive cleaning options are similarly thorough. PC Doctor doesn't just delete your temporary folders and web browser cache; it also highlights a great deal of Windows junk (more than CCleaner, on our test PC). The Trace Cleaner module wipes away your activity histories in Windows and many applications; the OS Thinner lists Windows files which can safely be removed (sample music, pictures, videos and more); and the Large Files tab lists the 100 largest files on your system drive, for a quick look at where your drive space has gone.

And there are plenty of useful extras. The Traffic Monitor displays a graphical view of your open internet connections, for instance, while a tiny activity monitor shows your current internet upload and download speeds, CPU and RAM-hogging applications, and more.

It's not all good news, though, particularly on the security side. The program aims to detect Trojans and dangerous plugins, for instance, but just displayed a long list of false positives on our test PC. Users can tell Kingsoft about this, and so we'd expect its accuracy to improve over time, but at the moment the anti-malware section of the program is too unreliable to be of any use.

Verdict:

Kingsoft PC Doctor is a capable hard drive cleaner, and does a good job of helping you optimise your startup programs and services. The security features are best avoided right now, though, and overall the program isn't yet suitable for inexperienced users: you need to know what you're doing, to be able to review all its recommendations and spot any which might not be correct.

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
