    "Good all-round update advice"

    February 3, 2013  |   By cwoodsp


    Starts up with the PC and almost immediately indicates which updates are available. With the amount of apps/progs/distros (select your favourite term) installed on our machines, it is easy to lose track of how outdated some of them have become. Whilst most major software has automatic update and upgrade facilities, this is most definitely not the case for ALL installed software on my desktops and laptops. CNET tracker differentiates between my PCs - and tailors its responses accordingly.


    As another reviewer pointed-out, the prompts to update no longer installed software, and prompts to update ALREADY current software, can be annoying. Well, fixing that is easy. You HIDE what you don't need reminding about! Very easily done on the Tracker page - and no more unnecessary reminders.
