Junkware Removal Tool
Remove adware, toolbars and more

Junkware Removal Tool, now owned and developed by Malwarebytes, is a console-based tool which can help you to detect and remove a range of unwanted software from your PC.

The author's website says Junkware Removal Tool has the ability to remove the following types of program: Ask Toolbar; Babylon; Browser Manager; Claro / iSearch; Conduit; Coupon Printer for Windows; Crossrider; DealPly; Facemoods / Funmoods; iLivid; Iminent; IncrediBar; MyWebSearch; Searchqu; Web Assistant. However, other adware and toolbars are also supported.

The program arrives as a very small download (538KB), and really couldn't be any simpler to use. There are no options, no settings; just run it if your system has become infested with some junk you can't remove, and JRT will scan your system - folders, processes, loaded modules, the Registry and more - and get rid of any annoyances it finds. A text file opened after the program has finished lists any actions it's taken.

The Junkware Removal Tool scanning process is a little more intrusive that you might expect from this kind of tool. It will close any open Explorer or browser windows, for instance, which can be annoying: to avoid problems, it's best if you close these yourself before launching a scan.

Otherwise, though, Junkware Removal Tool seems a very useful tool, lightweight, effective and exceptionally easy to use. Go grab a copy.

Verdict:

A small, simple, but effective adware removal tool

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."
