Avira PC Cleaner 1.0.0.106
Check a PC for malware with this stand-alone scanner

Avira PC Cleaner is a simple tool which can scan your PC, detecting and removing any malware.

The program doesn't require installation and you should be able to run it on just about any PC without conflicting with existing security software.

The initial release was only available in the German language - even the licence - which was something of a problem elsewhere. Fortunately there's now also an English language version.

You don't have to spend much time reading, though, as Avira PC Cleaner runs almost entirely automatically. There are no menus, no complex settings or dialog boxes: just click Scan and wait.

If no threats are uncovered then the program lets you know, displaying a reassuring green tick.

And if there are problems, you're able to remove them all with a click. You won't even see information on what's been detected unless you click the "Details" button; this really is an antivirus tool which even total novices can use.

Verdict:

A capable antivirus scanner which doesn't require installation. It asks to download up to 100MB of database files every times it runs, but the program is speedy overall and exceptionally easy to use.

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."
