Software update maniger?


Is there a program/software out there that helps
 you keep on track with all your programs updates
 just incase they don't update them self
 i know a year or 2 back i try avast (did not like it)
 but one thing i did like about it that it told me suntan software
 was not up to date and it directed me to the update on the official website

 its just is there a legitimate software out there that can tell you if stuff need updating

 

i dont mind buying a Legit Software maybe its a Security package like avast but i just wanted to know
becuase its allways good to keep on top of all your updates
and its hard to keep track of them all when they dont do it them selfs

 

it has to be legit software no dodgy 3rd part software
Maybe it comes in a Security package?
(Sorry for the bad grammer and spelling i have dyslexia)
But anyway could anyone point me in the right direchion as i really want to keep my pc software secure and uptodate

 

I use windows 10

Thank you for The Help

Secunia PSI does. But I just checked and it's not available for Windows 10.... Yet.

I don't know of another program or application that would support Windows 10 at this time.

Hopefully someone else will have some information.

I suggest filehippo update checker other than Secunia.
The problem with filehippo is it directs you to the download site hosted by itself than the original vendor's website. The choice will rest on your shoulder whether to download it from filehippo or original vendor's/developer's site.

Hello SmurfonWheels:
 
Amongst others, you may wish to investigate the on-demand, Freeware/PRO versions of KC Softwares' SUMo Lite/Portable.

Due to the previous objections to the inclusion of the Relevant Knowledge sponsor in the regular installer version, the Lite/Portable editions are now absent of any other commercial sponsorship.

Thank you.

I've been wondering about Secunia.  I used it before with minimal problems (two programs would not update, and I couldn't tell it to ignore them).  For the past several months, it's just been going on & on & on, for several hours with no progress.  I've uninstalled & downloaded from their site a few times (most recently a few days ago).  I'm on the same system (Windows 7) as before.  Any thoughts?

I would say that this is a "known" issue with SecuniaPSI v3. A lot of users are using the v2 instead and it's working just fine. You can download the latest stable release for Secunia PSI v2 from the link below.

Oh, I guess I had updated it, as I'm supposed to do.  As the program is supposed to remind you to do.  Thanks for the link to the stable verson.  I'll ignore it when it tells me to update itself!  :)

 

Wait, I see where it tells you what each new version does, but how do you download that version?

Don't forget there are other alternatives like Ninite noted in the links I provided above.

Thanks, Aura!  Seems strange that v3 has been out for so long.  Shouldn't Secunia have told me to update itself?

 

Quietman7, thanks for introducing yet more options to worry about!  ;)  I read many recommendations of Secunia, so I just went with it.

Well, if you were using SecuniaPSI v3 to begin with, it wouldn't have told you to update it since you were already running on the latest version :P
