Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit
Protect popular apps from 0-day exploits

Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit is a rebranded and improved beta version of ZeroVulnerabilityLabs' ExploitShield, an easy-to-use tool which protects popular applications from zero-day exploits, web-based vulnerability exploits and more.

The full list of shielded apps includes browsers (Firefox, Chrome, IE, Opera), Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), Media Players (Windows Media Player, VLC, Winamp, QuickTime), PDF-related tools (Adobe Reader, Foxit Reader, Adobe Acrobat) and more (Java, Windows Script Host, Windows Help).

Better still, no special configuration or setup is required to make this happen. Just install and launch it, and Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit will immediately go to work.

Under normal circumstances the program should then run entirely in the background, without you ever noticing anything at all. (Certainly it's 3MB RAM use isn't going to present much of a problem for even the most basic of hardware.)

If you want to know more, though, right-clicking the Anti-Exploit system tray icon and selecting "Show Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit" will reveal a few details. You can see how many exploits have been blocked, for instance, or view the program's logs for more details.

The other key option is the ability to stop and restart protection, which could be useful if you notice any odd behaviour after installing Malwarebytes Anti-Exploit (it's a beta, there are sure to be bugs). If you notice any problems, right-click its system tray icon and select Stop Protection; right-click the icon and select Start Protection to restore normal operations.

What's new in 1.05?

- Engine (DLL) code re-write to improve stability and compatibility.
- Added mitigations DEP Enforcement, Anti-HeapSpraying and BottomUp ASLR.
- Added new Layer0 "Application Hardening" protections.
- Added Layer1 new generic ROP protection mitigations.
- Added Layer1 new StackPivoting 64-bit protection mitigation.
- Added Layer2 new caller mitigations for 64-bits.
- Added Layer3 new application behavior mitigations.
- Added trial mode to allow for testing of Premium version.
- Added Quarantine of blocked payloads from Layer3 detections.
- Added filename details for default and custom shields.
- Added graphic user interface bitmaps.
- Added new "Protection stopped" traybar balloon.
- Added new counter which counts apps instead of processes.

Verdict:

A very simple and free way to protect many popular programs from zero-day vulnerabilities

This sounded like a good app,so I tried it,after first reboot,no problem. Then computer started freezing during normal operations. Uninstalled and problem disappeared.

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."
