I am a computer tech. I use a lot of the programs that are available on this website. I am looking for a program that will go out and download a copy of the latest versions of said programs and copy them to my flash drive. For instance I use adwcleaner and I have to go out and download the program about everytime I need to use it because the version I have is out of date. So if I had a program that would automatically download adw without me having to visit bleeping computer and download it that would be great. I can click on a button that basically updates all of my tools that I use.

Ketarin - Keep your USB application installers updated easily by Britec

Ketarin is a small application which automatically updates setup packages. As opposed to other tools, Ketarin is not meant to keep your system up-to-date, but rather to maintain a compilation of all important setup packages which can then be burned to disc or put on a USB stick.

Worth a look on Filehippo, mainer21.

Mainer21 I think that is exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the find.

Jayhz CNET does the same thing with there downloads. They at one time didn't like the adware on there site and now they try and bundle that stuff up with the installer. If you are cautious when installing you should be fine. I also found that clicking the direct download under the download now only downloads the installer and not the manager on CNET but I am sure it does the same on file hippo.

Here is a link from Ketarin's web site to download it. I personally downloaded it 5 minutes ago and the file is clean.

The Ketarin web site is clean also.

Just got around to trying out Ketarin and it works great! It took a little tinkering around with but I am very pleased with the program. I wish the guy would update the forum or provide a way that I can donate.
