Anvi Smart Defender
Protect your PC from malware?

Anvi Smart Defender is a compact tool for detecting and removing malware.

The program offers three on-demand scan types; Quick, Full and Custom. They're all fast, but unfortunately they're not too accurate, and there are no further configuration options.

The free edition of Smart Defender provides some real-time protection with six "guards": "File", "Registry", "Startup Item", "Web", "Privacy" and "Download".

Unsurprisingly, the commercial edition has many more: "Adware", "eShopping", "USB", "Behaviour", "Remote Access", "Remote Execute" and "Anti Exploit". All the guards can be enabled or disabled separately, but again there are no configuration options.

Anvi Smart Defender doesn't stop at detection, though. An Anti Hacker module scans your system, reports on vulnerabilities and poorly configured settings, and offers to fix them. It's mostly very basic (check the Windows Update is enabled, Autoplay is turned off), and there are a few options we didn't recognise ("Check if critical account is normal"), but it may help security beginners.

Version 2.4
     1 Optimized scanning engine to improve its stability.
     2 Fixed some bugs

Verdict:

Anvi Smart Defender is a lightweight antivirus tool which works well with other security packages. It looks good and is easy enough to use, but accuracy remains poor.

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."
