ClamWin
Detect and remove malware with this free on-demand virus scanner

ClamWin is a free antivirus tool that could be the ideal choice to add a second layer of protection to your system.

The program doesn't offer real-time protection, so isn't suitable for use as your main antivirus package. However this does mean you can install it alongside most other security tools without any problems, then use it to run scheduled or on-demand scans to get a second opinion on your PCs health.

ClamWin is also compatible with a wide range of Windows versions - 98, Me, 2000, XP, Vista, 7, Server 2003 and 2008 - so you'll be able to run it on just about any PC, even ancient systems that the other antivirus vendors ignore.

The program isn't overflowing with features, as the authors have just concentrated on the bare essentials: automatic downloads of its virus definition updates, a scanning scheduler, Explorer integration to help you scan specific files or folders, an Outlook add-in to remove dangerous attachments, and more.

Still, that makes it easy to use. If you think you've been infected by something that your main antivirus package has missed, then it only takes a moment to launch ClamWin, run a memory scan and see if it can find anything.

Version 0.99.1:

- Support for the following file formats: XDP, MBR, GPT, APM, OOXML, MSXML and HWPs
- Other bug fixes

Verdict:

It's a little basic, and there's no real-time protection, but ClamWin is still useful to have around for a second opinion on your PC when you need it

Unreal Engine 4.15.1

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."
