    Anyone here know if Cnet got rid of there CATCH UP software that automatically checks all your programs to see if your updated?

    I dont see it on there site anymore and was curious if its still even around?

    If not is there any other sites that offer that type of software?

    I recieved a newsletter from CNET maybe a week or so ago, and it said the CatchUp service would be disabled for awhile but that it would be back---they're probably just fiddling with it to make it better (or worse!) ;)

    I've been checking the Catch-Up page every 3 months or so for maybe the last 4 years.... I wonder what could be taking so long. I sure hope it comes back.

    It was a nice service, but I wouldn't keep my hopes up anymore. [​IMG]

    All they say now. Well I used it and loved it. It was free, fast and neigh on 100% correct.
    I have the .exe on a disc somewhere, I know it still don't work as I tried it a few years ago.

    The major problem (which I have never seen written at cnet), is that hackers can comprimise your security, via a few flaws in the web server, the software and information across the net.

    I hope they do release it again, I would pay to use it if need be.

    It's one of my top 3 applications, it's missed, come back catch-up!

    You can try downloading it here Won't work just small amount of info.

    I wouldn't use it. I don't like the idea someone sending my info to cnet.
