No doubt Windows does a great job when it comes to checking security and Windows product updates. But it doesn’t check for latest versions of all installed 3r party software. FileHippo Update Checker is a lightweight tool which resides in the system tray and notifies you about the available updates of all software installed on your computer.
Once it finds an update for any installed application on your computer it will alert you instantly. Clicking the update pop up message in the system tray will allows you to visit the FileHippo site from where you can download the latest version of the said software.
It displays the notification as follows when it detects any update.
You may customize the settings for this update checker by right clicking its tray icon and choosing Settings, similarly you can also find out other different useful options from here.
It works on Windows 2000/2003 Server, Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Windows 7. Enjoy!
