 SquirrelChess.com - Software review: Shredder Linux chess engine
Shredder Classic is based on an older and slightly weaker version of the engine but has the advantage that a free 30-day trial version is available for download.
Shredder is able to calculate several variations for this purpose, which is an advantage compared to most freely available chess engines that to the best of my knowledge do not provide this feature.
Reducing the strength of Shredder is even easier because it allows to set the program's approximate playing strength between 1000 ELO and maximum strength.

 ChessAssistance.com Rybka Review
When chess engines are discussed, there is a tendency among reviewers to overdo the hyperbole.
Part of this is natural enthusiasm, but one does get tired of watching one engine or another come out on top, depending on who runs the test, the conditions, opening books used, etc (no offense to engine testers intended).
However, in the version of Chess Assistant that I'm using (9.03 as of this writing), there is no Rybka engine type, so you should select DLL (UCI) as engine type in the engine's setup dialog box (but only if you're using the dll version).
