Adaware Free
Keep your PC safe from harm with the latest edition of this popular antivirus tool

adaware free antivirus is a popular malware hunter.

Install the program and it goes to work immediately, monitoring running processes and the files you're accessing to block threats before they can do any harm.

You can also run various types of scans on demand, either from the program or by right-clicking a file in Explorer and selecting "scan with adware..."

The free build of the program has some major limitations. In particular, there's no online protection apart from the scanning of downloads, and no scanning of emails.

Upgrading to a commercial edition will fix this and add other features.

Adaware Pro extends the free build with web, online banking, email and network protection, and a firewall.

Adaware Total also gives you encryption, secure file deletion and parental controls.

What's new in 12 (see complete changelog for more info)?

- Brand new user-interface
- Streamline installer
- Faster and more-efficient scanning
- Enhanced network protection
- Improved real-time protection
More advanced-user customisation-

Verdict:

Adaware is easy to use, but doesn't have the best of detection records.

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."
