Bitdefender Rootkit Remover 1.0
A fast, free and portable rootkit remover

Bitdefender Rootkit Remover is a quick and easy tool for dealing with known rootkits.

The company say it can currently remove Mebroot, all TDL families (TDL/SST/Pihar), Mayachok, Mybios, Plite, XPaj, Whistler, Alipop, Cpd, Fengd, Fips, Guntior, MBR Locker, Mebratix, Niwa, Ponreb, Ramnit, Stoned, Yoddos, Yurn, Zegost and Necurs.

There's no need to install anything, and so no worries about conflicts with other security tools. Just download the program, click "Start Scan", and it should take care of everything else.

What you will notice, if you're not infected by anything, is that scan times can be extremely fast - perhaps just a second or two. And that's because Rootkit Remover works with known threats only, so there's no need to examine every file on your system - it already knows exactly where to look.

Of course this also means that Rootkit Remover is no substitute for a full antivirus engine, something which might be able to prevent your system from being infected in the first place. But if you think you may have a rootkit and your current security package can't help, then it may be a good idea to give Bitdefender Rootkit Remover a try.

Verdict:

It has its limitations, but if you think your system is infected by malware and your current antivirus tool can't help then Bitdefender Rootkit Remover may be worth a try

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."
