Used this since it came out, it's from FileHippo. It checks your current version of common software like AV, ASW, Internet browsers, etc., and sees if their server has a new version. Available has standalone and installation.
If newer versions suck, they have older versions.
Completely safe, even offers beta software.
Highly recommend :)

Yep it's good alright :D. Only wished they had more software. FileForum is more comprehensive but you need an account to get their update emails. Wish they had an update checker too.

The Update Checker from FileHippo has one big limitation - it just shows updates for the software one has installed and matches their database too.
So if it happens to have an extra app that they don't offer for download ...bummer!!:crosseyed:

Yep, that's the bad thing. But for those applications, you can go on FileForum nd sign up for email notifications. It's very easy and I've never had any problems with it :)

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
