Trend Micro Rootkit Buster BETA 5.0.0.1129 (64-bit)
Quickly detect and disable some rootkits

Trend Micro Rootkit Buster BETA is a portable, easy to use and extremely quick way to detect and disable some rootkits.

The program comes in the form of a single executable. This can check three main areas for infection - "Files or Master Boot Records", "Services" and "Kernel Code Patches" - and each of these can optionally be disabled, if you can think of a good reason to do so.

Generally, though, all you then have to do is click "Scan Now, and watch as Rootkit Buster scans the system areas you've specified, delivering its verdict and disabling any threats (if present) in little more than a second.

As its extreme speed suggests, this isn't the most thorough of security health checks, and Trend Micro Rootkit Buster is no substitute for a regularly updated, full-strength antivirus tool.

The program is easy and convenient to use, though, so it's worth keeping a copy around, just in case you're infected by something which your regular security package can't remove.

Verdict:

Basic but extremely fast, Trend Micro Rootkit Buster is worth including in your portable security toolkit

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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
