I'm with mark3986 on this. I've been to their site and followed their instructions and still the thing won't download the updates.

I think the key phrase is upcoming here on the website. "Welcome to the Getting Started Guide for new users of UpdateStar, the (upcoming) leading information service to update your personal software."

It might work but try this which do a similar thing Secunia PSI click here

I have just read this in their FAQ section -

Q. UpdateStar says there is an UpdateStar update available. What should I do?

A. We are constantly improving UpdateStar. UpdateStar is able to update itself. Once the message appears, accept the update and the download will be initiated in the background. This may take a few minutes.

After the download was finished, UpdateStar will ask to be allowed to close. You have to accept that to let UpdateStar install the new version in the background. Once the update is finished, UpdateStar will automatically start all over.

So I presume you let it work automatically, in the background, regardless of what updates it tells you are available?
