Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013
Annihilate malware on site with this capable antivirus tool

Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 is a powerful antivirus tool which provides many ways to detect, block and remove malware.

The program allows you to scan individual files or folders from the Explorer right-click menu, for instance. The Critical Areas Scan checks just the most likely infection points in a few seconds, while the Full Scan checks everything. And scans can be run manually, on a schedule, or you can have the program check your system automatically whenever it's idle.

While Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 looks and feels very like the previous edition, there are changes below the surface. The main addition, Kaspersky's new Automatic Exploit Prevention, aims to prevent malware from taking advantage of software vulnerabilities to infect your PC. And other tweaks include a simplified installation process, more accurate detection of phishing sites, and an easier-to-use virtual keyboard, which helps you enter passwords, account numbers and other details without their being intercepted by key loggers.

And a selection of interesting bonus tools will check Windows and Internet Explorer for poorly configured settings, as well as helping you maintain privacy by deleting various Windows and application histories.

None of this power gets in your way, though, and Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2013 is for the most part very easy to use, making the program a very good choice for novices and PC experts alike.

Verdict:

An effective and versatile antivirus tool which comes packed with worthwhile features, yet always remains straightforward and easy to use.

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."
