Autorun Organizer
Manage your Windows startup programs

Autorun Organizer is a tool for managing program set up to launch when Windows starts. There's a lot of competition in this area, but don't click "Back" just yet: this one is better than most.

The program checks a good range of startup locations, for instance: the Startup folder, the Registry, Task Scheduler. It separates your autorun programs into "recently added" and "old" sections, making it easier to spot anything you've just installed. And broken startup entries (anything where the file no longer exists) are highlighted in red, helping you to recognise potential problems in seconds.

Right-click a startup program and you're able to access its properties, view the startup location (the Registry location/ Startup folder/ Task Scheduler), open the program's folder, even run a web search.

If you need more help in figuring out a startup application's usefulness, there's an option to view its popularity with other users. (This is turned off by default for privacy reasons, but you can restore it with a click.)

Could any of these startup programs be malicious? Unlike most similar applications, Autorun Organizer doesn't leave you wondering this for yourself. VirusTotal integration means there's an option to check them with all the leading antivirus engines.

Once all this research is complete, useless startup items can quickly be removed. If you're not sure about a program, there's an option to temporarily disable it. Or you can opt to delay its launch time, which could make your system feel more responsive when it first starts.

In a final thoughtful touch, Autorun Organizer displays a chart of recent "system load times" below the startup item list. This provides an immediate view of your current performance, and will also show you how effective (or otherwise) any of your startup tweaks have been.

What's new in 2.11 (Release Notes):

- The problem with the application's digital signature has been fixed.

Verdict:

A nicely designed startup program manager with some smart and effective features

Unreal Engine 4.8

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."

8.48 brings:
    - Optimized grass rendering and procedural foliage system preview
    - Plugins available in Marketplace
    - Improved accuracy for motion blur
    - New Tone Mapper
    - Support for all the latest VR hardware including Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Steam VR and HTC Vive, Leap Motion, and Sony's Project Morpheus for PlayStation 4
    - "Scrubbable" network replays with rewind support and live time scrubbing
    - Visualize the memory footprint of game assets in an interactive tree map UI
