avast! Cleanup Tool
Remove unwanted avast! software with avast! Cleanup Tool

If you have decided that you no longer want to use a particular program, you may well head to the Control Panel or the Start menu and run through the installer. In most cases you will find that this gets rid of the program in question in its entirety, but this is not necessarily the case.

There are occasions when an uninstaller files for one reason or another, and this could mean that software you do not want is left untouched on your hard drive, or that remnants of it are left behind. When you have indicated that you want to remove a program, it stands to reason that you would prefer that no traces of it were left behind, and this is something that avast! Cleanup Tool can help you with.

This is a very specific tool that have been designed to be used to get rid of , and in the case of avast! Antivirus 7 Free and Professional, or avast! Internet Security. There is no need to install the app as it is a standalone tool – just fire it up and it will quickly remove any files or registry entries that have been left behind.

You should first run through the regular uninstaller for you avast! tool or you will find that this utility has not effect. If you have other anti-malware software installed, it is possible that the avast! Cleanup Tool will be flagged up as being suspicious, but it is perfectly safe.

Note that avast! Cleanup Tool is an unofficial tool created by an enthusiast. Use with caution.

Build 1.2 brings these changes:

- Added cleanup support for all avast! v8 editions
- Added Windows 8 support

Verdict:

A handy tool for cleaning up after an untidy uninstall – great to keep your system under control.

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."
