OUTDATEfighter: Automatic System & Software Updater for Windows 7 | 8

From the SPAMfighter developers comes OUTDATEfighter, a software update checker that will help you update installed programs on your Windows machine, automatically. Updating software to its latest versions is an important step to ensure that you have its latest features and in staying secure online, as security patches are often included in updates. Instead of checking for software updates for each of the installed software individually, OUTDATEfighter will notify you immediately if new versions are available.

OUTDATEfighter Software Updater


OUTDATEfighter has a clean easy to use interface. On first run you will be required to scan your system. OUTDATEfighter will inspect all your installed software and from its database of over 1,234,334 software check if newer versions are available for any of your applications. This database is updated daily and will always have the newest versions.

The scan takes less than half a minute and once it is completed, it will display a list of programs that require to be updated.

Clicking on Download will directly download the updated version to your computer. Once done, the red Download button will turn to a green Install button. Clicking on Install will commence the installation.  If you wish, you can also Ignore updates for a particular software if you wish. Very convenient!

OUTDATEfighter includes an Uninstaller and a module to Update Windows OS too. The Uninstaller is an extra feature and is pretty basic, unlike some other free Uninstaller Software out there. If any Windows Updates are found, they are displayed under Important Updates and Optional Updates. So from one interface you can update your software, update your Windows and uninstall installed programs.

You can set OUTDATEfighter to auto-scan when the program is launched and run it at Windows logon too, if you wish.

Before a new version is made available to you, OUTDATEfighter installs and tests the new version for stability and malware. Only if it is clean is the update offered to you. This ensures that no update will include a potential threat from the software vendor.

A good software updater, in my opinion. Go get it from its home page. It worked just fine on my Windows 8, 64-bit.
