EnhanceMy8 Free 2.0
A simple Windows 8 maintenance/ tweaking tool

EnhanceMy8 Free provides a collection of tools to tweak and maintain your Windows 8 systems.

The suite includes modules to clean your Registry, disable or remove unwanted Windows startup programs, and list running processes and services. There are some basic Windows tweaks (startup, shutdown, visual effects, taskbar, desktop and more). A simple "System Info" page displays a few details on your PC's hardware and software, while the "System Tools" section provides one-click access to a host of Windows utilities (Device Manager, Registry Editor, Support Diagnostic Tool, WMI, Windows Script Host Settings, and more).

Most of these modules are short on features. "System Information" displays your Windows version and registered user, but doesn't give you the product key. The "Startup Items" section does little more than the Windows 8 task manager, and "Processes" and "Services" are similarly limited: they can verify digital signatures, but otherwise you're again better off using the standard Windows tools.

It's all a little underpowered, then, but that's in part because most of the functions are reserved for the commercial EnhanceMy8 Pro (yours for $39.95). This adds tools to clean and defragment your hard drive; apply performance, security and network tweaks; optimise your Windows services, and customise your context menus, system icons and folders.

Even this is unlikely to be enough for experienced PC users; EnhanceMy8 just isn't that powerful, and you'll get much better results by equipping your system with the best-of-breed freeware. But if you're a relative PC novice - or just looking for a simple Registry cleaner with a few extras - then EnhanceMy8 Free is at least simple to use, and adware-free, so might be worth a brief look.

Verdict:

It's easy to use, but EnhanceMy8 Free 2.0 is also distinctly short on features and functionality. For PC tweaking novices only.

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."
