Powerful tool that enables you to quickly remove or disable problematic startup applications

Unlike a Mac, Windows seems to have problems going in to sleep mode and staying asleep. The number of times we’ve left our desktops in low power mode, to find they are on and running in full power mode, the next day. The problem is that we really want to avoid having to shut down our computer every evening. Yes, it’s better for the environment, but Windows can take ages to boot and launch our startup applications.

However, things are made much worse if there’s a problematic startup application. This can happen when you’ve installed software on your computer and then attempted to uninstall. When you try and uninstall software from your computer, if the application is still partly open on your computer, some of these remnants will remain in your Registry. Try and boot your machine and you may find that it gets confused, trying to find those uninstalled files, which means it takes far longer to boot as a result.

There is a solution and, unfortunately, it’s not built in to Windows. AutoRuns is an official Microsoft application that enables you to run an analysis on every startup application, process and other file, so you can see where the problematic files remain. You can then quickly disable or remove these files.

Verdict:

Powerful tool that you can use to analyse problematic startup applications and processes. For serious users though.

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."
