Keep Your Softwares Updated By Using Update Checker

Update checker for windows is a slim desktop utility that will scan your PC for installed programs and keep you informed on newer releases of softwares.

The Update Checker will scan your computer for installed software, check the versions and then send this information to filehippo.com to see if there are any newer releases. These are then neatly displayed in your browser for you to download.

Here the display of my browser window when i run the update checker on my system.

The client is FREE, only 100kb to download and only takes seconds to run! In fact when i run the update checker test on my system, the process is complete in under 2 seconds only.

The Update Checker works on any Windows PC running Vista, XP, 2003, 2000 or 98.

It requires that the Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 is installed, which you may download directly from filehippo.com/download_dotnet_framework_2.

The best thing is that the application does not require any installation and can be run directly from desktop or downloaded folder.

The Update Checker is not a spyware so don’t worry at all. I have checked for it deeply. It will not send any personal information back to filehippo.com, the only information collected is a list of programs and their versions, along with the operating system details to help with processing and no data is linked to your IP address and the logs are deleted after processing.
