I'm trying to find a way to automatically download/update files. For example, downloading adwcleaner once a week and replacing my current copy. I'd like to do this with several files. I've searched the forums here, done several google searches, and tried a few programs to no avail. Does anyone know how I could set this up?

 

Thanks

Secunia PSI is popular to checking outdated third party applications installed on your PC. However, Adwcleaner is created to be downloaded and run manually while it detects older versions when the program is open as it prompts you to download the latest release software AFAIK.

you don't actually want this... it's just like more Windows updates.

Jhayz: thanks for the suggestion. As you seemed to suggest though, it doesn't look like it will work for programs which are not actually installed.

 

Tsvk!: Actually I do. Otherwise, I wouldn't have posted.

I think you're looking for something like this: http://ninite.com/

The softwares available are limited but have you tried Windows Task Scheduler? Not sure about not installed programs though maybe posting in the Programming section of Bleeping Computer and ask a batch file.
