Ashampoo WinOptimizer 11
Maintain, optimise and clean your PC with this all-in-one performance tool

Ashampoo WinOptimizer 11 is a very comprehensive PC cleanup, maintenance and optimisation suite.

If you're short of hard drive space ,for example, the program can remove leftover Windows and application files, surplus browser traces (IE, Firefox, Chrome, Opera and Safari), unnecessary duplicate files and broken shortcuts. A "Disk Space Explorer" helps you find other space-hogging folders, and the program can even defrag the drive when it's done to ensure you're getting the best possible performance.

An array of other speedup modules help to control your Windows startup programs, highlight and disable unnecessary services, optimise your internet connection, clean and defragment your Registry, remove unwanted applications, manage running processes, and more.

WinOptimizer includes a whole library of maintenance modules, including tools to benchmark your system speed, monitor drive health, control file associations, edit Explorer context menus, save and restore your desktop icon settings, and split, join, encrypt, decrypt, wipe and undelete files.

While this might sound complex, it really isn't. You can have WinOptimizer find and fix any issues on your PC in a couple of clicks, then leave it to maintain your system all on its own. Or you can take full control of any of its modules, whenever you need them. It's your call.

Version 11 adds Game Booster, which temporarily closes unnecessary services and applications to speed up your PC. The new User Rights Manager can restrict user accounts in various ways (prevent access to workgroups, Task Manager, the Add/ Remove Programs applet and more). The System Information tool displays many more details, and there are improvements to Driver Cleaner, Internet Cleaner, Registry Optimizer and others.

Note that WinOptimizer 11 installs as a 40 day trial, with a further 30 days available if you register the program.

Verdict:

A solid collection of tools that will perform best on ageing, bloated Windows installations, but also boasts modern tweaks such as SSD optimisations and Windows 8 support. Perfect for the set-it-and-forget-it crowd.

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."
