    "Great Notifier, But..."

    August 21, 2012  |   By l8rb

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.1

    Pros

    It does (to some degree) do what the name says.

    Cons

    BUT, it also does it repeatedly...I have on more than one occasion updated programs only to be told a couple of hours later those same progs needed the SAME updates again!

    Summary

    /fed up after six months of fighting...deleted!

    "A step in the right direction"

    August 21, 2012  |   By talf

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.1

    Pros

    It does update many programs

    Cons

    It leaves the program files in the download folder, even if the installment was successful.
    It deletes the defaults you defined and returns the programs' defaults.
    It misses some programs, even some that can be found in CNet (e.g., Advanced Uninstaller PRO).
    It is set to automatically update CNET TechTracker. However, I cannot tell if it works or not, as it will not tell me what version I have on my computer.

    Summary

    This is a program I've been looking for for a long time, but I'm afraid we are not there yet.
    This is a step in the right direction, but the road ahead is long.

    "This latest version is seriously flawed!"

    August 15, 2012  |   By Junglesaurus

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.1

    Pros

    Sadly ... none.

    Cons

    This version won't download or update any of my cnet programs though I've getting a ton of notifications to update 22 of my programs.

    Summary

    Previous versions were excellent! This latest version is useless and as many have pointed out - a total waste of time. I tried and retried (Vista OS) but always got the same download error message. CNET staff were unable to remedy the situation. I've had to uninstall the techtracker and will have to search out each program periodically to see if new versions are available. What a shame.

    "Sorta OK But Also Poor"

    July 22, 2012  |   By Peter-Soady

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.1

    Pros

    Can show all you all the non MS updates. But beware some of the updates it shows you may already have and can be very annoying when this happens

    Cons

    Calls error message when using "Smart Install" and unable queue or download any updates this way, very agitating and annoying.
    ------
    SYSTEM
    ------
    Windows 7
    Comodo Firewall
    Awast Pro
    Malware Bytes

    Summary

    Until the errorss and bugs are fixed dont bother with this it is more hassle than it is worth

    "Unfortunately more bother than it is worth"

    July 21, 2012  |   By Steelbreese

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.1

    Pros

    A good concept

    Cons

    Unfortunately it is inefficient. Creates duplicates, Doesn't install all downloads requested and suggests updates are available for some programs that are up to date

    "Like a real friend saves my time."

    July 20, 2012  |   By traumig

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.1

    Pros

    It allows to turn off most of program autoupdaters that begin their running at System startup and in this way computer's startup is slow. Customized mode and shedule of program's work allows you take no care for searching updates.

    Cons

    Being reinstalled,it stopped my connection to my CNET Download.com page. When ajusting Windows Firewall I didn't find out TechTracker in list of my programs. So, I can't allow it for Windows Firewall.

    Summary

    I'll try to install it properly again & again. It's usefull.

    "Tech Tracker will only quit if I Force Quit."

    June 2, 2012  |   By Abes48

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.1

    Pros

    It really does find new updates for your software.

    Cons

    I have a MacBook Pro and I have to Force Quit Tech Tracker 2.1.1 in order for it to quit.

    Summary

    I like it but am sick of having to Force Quit Tech Tracker.

    "A good company with a bad product"

    June 2, 2012  |   By appletechfan981

    Version: CNET TechTracker 2.1

    Pros

    Tells you what programs to update, which is handy I guess.

    Cons

    Takes you to web to update

    Updates take you straight to programs site

    Summary

    I am a big fan of CNET but this program is not that great. It takes you to the web to see your updates, when you press the download button it takes you straight to the programs site, isnt it quicker to just go into the program to update? I am sorry CNET but this program is not good, even if you pay for premium.
