WinLock
Prevent unauthorised users from accessing important or potentially dangerous resources on your PC

WinLock is a powerful security tool that allows you to take strict control over what other users can do on your PC.

If your kids are always messing around with your system settings, for instance, then in a few clicks you can prevent them from accessing the Registry editor, Control Panel, Display Properties, or even My Computer. Only someone who knows the central password (that'll be you, hopefully) will be able to bypass the protection and use the blocked settings.

You can also customise Explorer, perhaps hiding the Folder Options menu, or disabling the right-click context menu. You're able to set up User Account Control to suit your needs (and be sure that it'll stay that way). While the Drives pane allows you to prevent specified drives from being displayed in Computer or Explorer, and can block access to removable drives altogether.

WinLock is also able to prevent access to particular files, folders, or applications.

You can prevent users from viewing particular web sites.

If you're feeling really strict, then you can even limit the length of time that your PC can be running, so for example after a couple of hours it'll automatically close down.

Or, if you prefer a more hands-off approach, then you can have WinLock record the changes that your users make in its log file, for review later.

Version 7.2 changes include:

- Desktop and webcam snapshots, block portable devices and more.

Verdict:

If someone's messing with important Control Panel settings on your PC then it's best to make sure they understand why this is a bad idea. But if that's not an option, then WinLock can help - it's easy to use, and allows you to lock down your system in many different ways

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."
