    Default Software Review : Updates Notifier

    In our day-today life, we would have had to install at least half a dozen windows application depending upon our usage of computer. And as time passes by, and occasions arise, we may install additional applications according to the need. Now, some of these application may not be closely related to the OS, while others can be misused into harming your OS, data etc.

    Common applications like Internet explorer, adobe flash , windows media player , anti-viruses fall into the latter category. The fact remains that the majority of such security problems can be averted if the softwares are kept updated.

    While a many of softwares include an inbuilt updater , they might not always work properly due to scheduled time, frequency of update time etc. At the same time, it’s neither feasible nor pleasurable to check each application website manually for updates.

    Now here is an application called as “update notifier” which can automatically scan for all installed softwares, make a list of them and check for updates.
    Website: Clean Softs Professional Association (CSPA) - cleansofts.org
    Your task now becomes much easier in that, you can update your software almost as soon as it is released.

    Features of Update Notifier:

    • Automatically starts with windows – so that it can keep checking for updates automatically without manual actions.

    • Can keep track of all installed applications and also automatically adds newly installed applications.

    • Check updates for all your installed softwares at one go.

    • If you are notified of an update, you can manually update the software using its inbuilt updater or go to update notifiers website to be redirected to the download link for the installer.

    • You can also specify a directory with portable applications and then they will also be checked for updates.

    • You have the option to set the frequency at which the software will be checked for updates. For casual users a period of 1 day will do just fine.
