Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller 15
Easily uninstall all copies of Flash on your PC

The Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller is a tiny portable tool which will quickly remove all copies of Flash from every browser on your PC.

For the program to work properly you must first close every application which is currently using Flash, though. And that can be a problem, as there may be more than you think. So we would shut down everything non-critical, just to be safe: every regular application which might be running, and everything in your system tray which isn't security related.

With that done, though, everything else is relatively straightforward. Just launch the program, click Uninstall, and watch. A progress bar will show what's happening, and within a few seconds you should see a message "Adobe Flash Player uninstalled successfully". Click "Done", and the program will close.

And if you want to be thorough, you should now probably remove any remaining Flash-related files and folders. Hold down the Windows key and press R to launch the Run box, copy and paste the path \Windows\system32\Macromed\Flash there, click OK to open that folder, and delete all the files and folders there.

Repeat the process to delete the contents of the folders \Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed\Flash, %appdata%\Adobe\Flash Player and %appdata%\Macromedia\Flash Player.

And when you're happy, reboot your PC and Flash should now have disappeared. Although if you'd like to be sure, then it may be wise to visit Adobe's online Flash version checker. If it shows you a blank box, rather than a version number, than all is well. And if you want to reinstall Flash at some later date then the same page explains precisely what you need to do.

Verdict:

We're not quite sure why it leaves you to clean up the various Flash "temporary" files and folders, but otherwise the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller is certainly very easy to use

Spotlight: Free Full Software

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."

4.15.1 brings:
