COMODO System Utilities
Optimize and clean up your computer with COMODO System Utilities

COMODO is a company usually associated with security software, but it is also responsible for System Utilities 4.0, a collection of tools designed to help you to boost the performance of your computer, free up space and optimize your system. The program is divided into six main sections, but there is also an overview page that enables you to keep an eye on the optimization and maintenance status of your computer, as well as accessing one-click options such as registry and disk cleaning.

Moving to the Registry Cleaner section you can scan your registry for unnecessary entries. There are three levels of cleaning to choose from and you can opt to have a backup and a restore point automatically created before any cleaning takes place, and also configure a schedule so that future clean-ups are taken care of for you. The Privacy Cleaner section works in much the same way, but it is used to clean up logs that programs may be storing about your activities.

In a similar vein is the Disk Cleaner section where you can choose to free up disk space by deleting temp files, duplicates and more. There are a number of options you can configure to choose how aggressive the cleanup should be and scheduling it available here too. You may find that there are some files that cannot be deleted in the usual way due to the fact that they are locked by Windows or another process; the Force Delete tool can be used to remove these files like any other.

Other features to be found in the app include a file shredder that can be used to securely delete files you want to ensure cannot be recovered, and you can perform the same operation on an entire drive or partition. Topping off the package is Autorun Manager which helps you to reduce startup times by removing startup items and services – as an added bonus you’ll also be advised if any of the items that are found are considered malicious. There are signs that this is still a product that is undergoing development. This free tool features a link to upgrade to the Pro version, but this does not yet exist.

Verdict:

There are countless tools that do very much the same job as COMODO’s offering, but System Utilities is a great suite of utilities that gives great results at no cost.

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
