How many have tried Secunia, the press releases are outstanding. I have tried the basic scan and have upgraded to their free deeper version, sure seems to do a decent job of letting you know what is vulnerable or screwed up with your system and programs.

I have tried it and it showed various things you never know normally. Like vulnerability in WinAmp 5.5

I've been using Secunia since it was in Beta. It's a great tool for the average user especially for frequently updated programs.
