RegRun Reanimator
Detect and remove tricky malware, adware, rootkits and more

RegRun Reanimator is a tool to help you find and remove malware, adware, rootkits and other annoyances that your regular antivirus program may have missed.

Launch the program and it presents you with plenty of options. There are scans to look for browser problems, for instance, or check your Windows startup programs. It can list unidentified files, and check these for malware at VirusTotal.com. And there are modules to back up the Registry and key system files, restore these in the event of any problems, and undo some of the damage caused by malware (disabling Regedit or Task Manager, say).

A not-so-clear interface means accessing all this power isn't as easy to use as it should be. And with the program raising plenty of false positives, too, this isn't a tool for PC beginners.

Still, RegRun Reanimator can help to identify dangers which other software might miss. It's completely free for personal use, and doesn't come bundled with any adware of its own.

There's also a useful bonus feature in RegRun Reanimator's ability to produce a detailed report of your PC's current status, covering your installed programs, browser setup, Explorer extensions, network settings, key file associations, right-click menu options, drivers, Windows service details, codecs, startup programs, scheduled tasks, running processes, loaded DLLs and more. It's great as a record of your system configuration, and can also be very helpful when you want to troubleshoot problems on someone else's PC: just get them to run the program and email you the report.

What's new in 8.30.0.580 (see changelog for more)?

Verdict:

It's sometimes awkward to use, and not a good choice for beginners, but RegRun Reanimator really can help to detect and remove some malware. And its system reporting feature is very useful, too

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."
