When this program first came out i could not get it to run. not sure if it has since been updated but gave it another go and it worked fine. giving two lists of updates one for outstanding updates and the other for beta updates all plus a download button next to each entry for easy updating from the filehippo database of updates.

some may find it useful.

It is good - I've been using it for the last three weeks - No problems

I also could never get it to work.

Perhaps that's changed now?

It works OK but keeps telling me that there are updates for progs for which I already have the latest update - like it tells me there is an update for the Java Runtime Environment but when I download the update it then tells me that it is already installed and do I wish to reinstall it?
More work needed I think.

Thanks sunny staines. Shows only beta versions for me this time.
Stuartli, could it be your firewall? Comodo makes a bit of noise about the update checker.

i had this java 02 was updated rather than being called 03 you just need to reinstall. adaware recently did this too.

i think filehippo has tweaked the program as before i could not run it now i can no problem.

I might add that majorgeeks and IObit are together working on a similar program but they are still having problems with false readings.

Thanks sunny staines.

Now works for me - except one or two suggested updates are actually for older versions of what I already have...:-(

secunia software inspector is also worth looking into but it only does main programmes
