This program would scan the hard drive automatically monthly and look at a centralised database. You would then be advised that the following programs have been updated from version x.x to y.y and/or that the following drivers have been updated. You then clicked on an 'update and install' button & the software would download & update your selection - with you choosing 'ignore' for the other downloads.
sunny staines - that's the one! Oh well, never mind, it was just an idea - a bit like auto updates on Antivirus packages [keeps the bits smooth].
Granger - to respond to your question, the program was good as you could evaluate updates and decide if you wanted the program [buy or free trial [if the updates were of interest you went for it, if not you ignored it] and the driver update would often solve conflicts you were aware of but thought it was just a limitation of the software os a niggling glitch.
