    I haven't found an update checker(for 3rd party programs) that worked 100%. They usually missed 3/4 of my programs.
    I know what I have installed, and just check Major Geeks every day, for the programs that don't have auto updaters built in(2 programs). Most programs these days though, have built in updaters that can be set. An extra update program is just a waste of resources(my opinion).
    Just something for you to think about. The creators of these type of programs want to get them installed on your PC, so if you like it you'll either get the paid version(not much better), or try their other software(if I need it I would anyhow)

    SUMO never missed anything for me, but even if it does, just write to the developer, he will add it promptly.
    That said, its GUI is old, AD supported and to get a link for an each app you need to click 3 times, but it works.

    Well when I clicked on this link, Norton reports this as a Dangerous web page....and blocked it. Now Norton could be being a little over protective, but I like it being protective.

    I appreciate all the advice; I am using Secunia and File Hippo as they pick up what I miss.
    When left to my own devises I forget to check and, there are plenty of resources.
    The higher level more clever users are likely better off doing it themselves.

    Mm, it got past Bitdefender ok...
    Here's a softpedia link.

    There's a wikipedia reference too.

    (Interestingly if you sign up (link from the page displayed by the updater) there's an offer to 'automatically save your apps to the cloud' so you can reinstall them whenever you need to. Can't quite get my head around that-- do they make sure that's always the latest version...? Hmm...)

    Not as complete as Sumo (of course) but 1 click to download the update, and the installation is 'normal' in that you can choose the path in the usual way.

    The new FileHippo is working OK, and with Secunia is doing what I need.
