"Worthless Crap I purchased as a bundle with TuneUp Util"

June 01, 2012  |  By thesysthink

 |  Version: UpdateStar Premium Edition 8.0.1099

Pros

Nice Graphical representation/ UI ...

Cons

I tried to find some device drivers specific to my machine, which was listed as Upgradable (and where I expected this software to find the latest patch), but failed!

Why would anyone need a "Paid Subscription" to download common software such as Adobe Flash player??

Summary

I fell into trap because it was bundled with TuneUp Utilities, which in itself is a great piece of application. This is a learning to me and in future I would not pay for any application without reading it's review, no matter who sells it!

"Run don't walk to get away from this!!! Bad Bad"

December 05, 2010  |  By cchur

 |  Version: UpdateStar Premium Edition 5.2.1012

Pros

Nice presentation of installed software but that's about it

Cons

Found software that needed updating and installed a German update. How clever is that? The main thing this software does it to sell the rest of their software

Summary

This product is based on a great idea but is a bad example of implementation. I had such high hopes and would have thought about paying but I'm glad they had a test although I only tested for an hour. After that hour it was so bad that I uninstalled it and tried the free version that does absolutely nothing except want you to install the paid version.

"Why should I pay for this?"

April 27, 2010  |  By Stylomatix

 |  Version: UpdateStar Premium Edition 5.2.1012

Pros

+ nice scanner showing all installed software versus updates

Cons

- why should I pay for downloading foreign software

Summary

nice idea, bad realization. Over all that software should be free - in that case it would be a nice benefit.

"Using the free version. Buy the premium and hope? MAYBE"

April 26, 2009  |  By downAload

 |  Version: UpdateStar 3.1 build 762

Pros

Provides a good, quick look at all your programs, their version status and the urgency of any needed version updates.

Cons

with the same info provided by other programs as secondary functions to their main purpose....it's not hard to immagine life without it...........or not?

Summary

It's not unusual to run "UPDATE STAR FREE" and find programs they have already been running the latest version available after being made aware by another source.
Maybe Premium version would correct that I don't know.

"INACCURATE and USELESS!!!"

February 05, 2009  |  By thunderloader

 |  Version: UpdateStar 3.1 build 762

Pros

Easy to uninstall.

Cons

DOES NOT report accurately. Software is scanned only according to ORIGINAL version installed on the date of installation. Also from the first scan one is pressured to BUY "better" products.

Summary

UpdateStar was a disappointment beginning with the confusing user interface, filled with useless, irrelevent information. I make sure my software is updated. I would have expected it to find everything up-to-date, or perhaps a program or two I missed. Instead it reported Quite a number of updates for my software. When I double-checked the items it said should be updated, not only did I find everything was up-to-date, but I noticed the "scheme" this software uses. It finds the oldest, earliest entries from the date of original installation. It has no way of determining subsequent updates to installed software. To show its total incompetence, it was not even able to read most installed software, reporting them as unknown versions. This is most likely because I clean and eliminate temp and install setup files, and i keep my registry nice and clean. To download this product is a WASTE OF TIME! It can't do the job it supposedly was made to do. What it does do is pester the user to upgrade the UpdateStar to better versions (for a price). I was very happy to uninstall UpdateStar from my system. UpdateStar is USELESS!!!

"not free and has limitations until you buy it"

January 25, 2009  |  By sarge63b

 |  Version: UpdateStar 3.1 build 762

Pros

nothing at all, decieving advertisement

Cons

was not what it says, not free at all, has limitations till you buy it,

Summary

if a software is free, then it should be free, otherwise it must be a ripoff, things should not be advertised as free and no limitations unless they are exactly that
