Software Update Pro 5.42< のgiveaway は 2017年3月14日
Windows XP/ Vista/ 7/ 8/ 10
I use Ninite Free for the same purpose, but it is limited in the software it can check on. However, it does guarantee that no malware or any other junk is downloaded and installed with the updates.
This point is not mentioned in today's offering and would be nice to know.
Springy: this isn't the first time someone on here has wondered about the likelihood of unexpected add-ons in a software download. Hopefully, then, the following will assist:
Unchecky is a free, tiny, light-weight back-stop for any Windows OS user from XP onwards. How it works is explained in this video:
And how well it has been received is typified here:
Two points are worth bearing in mind:
(1) that in my long user experience of GOTD, this site's management has always been scrupulous in ensuring GOTD downloads are clean;
(2) Unchecky is -- as its developer makes clear -- an aid to a user's vigilance. Not a replacement for a user's vigilance. The onus is still on the user to pay attention to the install routine of any and every software, and not blithely go ahead without regard to consequence.
There's also another safeguard that I'd commend to those who wish to exercise due care over what is installed on their computer:
As with Unchecky, so, too, with EULAlyzer: it's free, it's tiny, and it's pretty darn good at identifying within the oft-times massive text of End User License Agreements any hidden elements that may make a potential user think twice before checking the "I agree" box.
Hope this helps you and any other GOTDers who may be unaware of these two excellent examples of truly useful freeware.
I decided to give this a try and see how well it works. Short answer, I was not impressed. After install the program scanned my computer and presented me a list. Many of it's own programs were described as "hot". That is fine but none of those programs are installed on my computer. I am only interested in the programs installed and the updates that are available. I am not interested in advertisements for the publisher's other program. Also during the install I was offered Malware Hunter. Luckily this needs to be checked for it to be installed. I declined.
I am no fan of KC Software due to their use of Relevant Knowledge. However the portable version of Sumo is much better than this offer.
I had this software before, instead of clicking on the box what to update, I clicked on update all and all of my GAOTD software got nullified. It is not something you must have, most software updates auto in the background and no need to forcefully update anything.
