Thanks for the tips. I just tried them both.
Secunia installed a Windows Service. It looks nice, creating lots of icons, but no list. It recognised 115 up to date programs and 13 needing updating. It listed the names of the programs. There is little information or options. It didn't give me a link to the download
PatchPC doesnt require installing... it is a runtime executable. It looks terrible. (Broken skins... might work on your PC but doesnt on mine). It found 15 updates. It lists the names of the programs. There is little information or options. It didn't give me a link to the download
SUMo looks OK. It has a "console" look to it. It recognised 134 up to date programs and 68 for updating. It lists the names of the programs and the developer company/publisher. There are many more options than the other two tools. It gave me a link to each download for each program.
