ESET Smart Security 6
A lightweight internet security suite with plenty of features

ESET Smart Security 6 is a lightweight and capable internet security suite with a good range of features.

There's the usual on-access and on-demand file scanning, for instance. An intelligent firewall protects you from network attacks, without hassling you with alerts. A spam filter blocks junk mail, while parental controls can limit access to defined types of website.

And while this is all very easy to use, it's also highly configurable. Experts will appreciate the tweaks available via ESET's Host Intrusion Protection System, for instance, while a tool like the System Inspector offers a detailed view of what's happening on your PC at any one time.

Top of the "What's New?" list this time is ESET Anti-Theft, a new web service which aims to try and help you recover a lost or stolen PC.

Scanning improvements see the program now able to scan files as they're downloaded, rather than waiting for the entire file to arrive. While new idle time scans will help to detect threats on your PC, even if they're inactive.

A range of other enhancements include an improved firewall and better anti-phishing protection.

And maintenance improvements see you now able to roll back the previous virus signature update, if you believe it's unstable or corrupt.

Build 6.0.316.0 brings these minor changes:

Fix: Resolved issue with activation in specific countries
Fix: Resolved issue with product icons in virtual machines


A straightforward internet security suite with some welcome new features

Spotlight: Free Full Software

Unreal Engine

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."
