avast! Premier 2015 SP2
avast's premier security suite is more powerful than ever

Avast! Premier 2015 is the company's premium security suite, and includes an antivirus engine, firewall, browsing protection and browser cleanup tool.

The suite builds on Avast Internet Security with an automated software update tool, which can not only alert you to new updates, but download and install them as well.

Another big extra is a military-grade data shredder, which can wipe important files, documents and other personal data, and ensure there's no chance they can be recovered.

AccessAnywhere is the other premium feature, and allows you to access your PC over the internet.

Installation is simple and straightforward. Compatibility seems good, too, with the package running happily alongside Norton Internet Security on our test PC.

The program interface is clean and very easy to use. Just click "Smart Scan" and the suite immediately runs a quick check for malware. But it now also scans for missing software updates, runs a new Home Security Network Check (wifi status, weak router passwords etc), and even looks for junk files and poorly configured Windows settings.

If you're in a hurry then you can click "Resolve all" and leave the program to sort out the details.

But if you need more control then Avast! Premier 2015 has plenty to offer. For example, the antivirus engine can check individual files, folders, removable media, commonly infected areas of your PC or the entire system. If that's not enough, you're able to create your own custom scan type by tweaking 30+ settings. And this can be scheduled to run at boot time, daily, weekly, monthly - whenever you like.

The 2015 edition adds SecureDNS to protect you from DNS hijacking, including wifi hotspots and unsecured networks in general.

New support for scanning TLS/SSL protected traffic will detect threats even on HTTPS connections.

Avast DeepScreen now uses hardware virtualisation to run processes in standalone virtual machines, completely isolated from the rest of your system, improving security and detection (you'll need hardware virtualisation to be supported and enabled, of course).

Help has moved completely online, where it's both more complete and more up-to-date.

Avast 2015 R2 SP1 includes these changes:

-          Unable to insert Avast SecureLine license
-          Failed to load language dll [1033\UILangRes.dll] error after update
-          Mail Shield blocked Windows Live Mail connection
-          BCU problems with removing addons in silent mode

Verdict:

Avast Premier 2015 is a versatile, easy-to-use and configurable security suite. Avast Internet Security 2015 is almost as capable, security-wise, though - it's just missing the automated software updating, data shredder and remote access modules - and could be a better choice for many users.

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."
