FileHippo Update Checker

Hi,

I have only just made the switch to W7, which I am loving by the way but I use to love FileHippo Update Checker. The program has installed fine but when it runs and searches for updates it doesn't show all of the programs I have installed on my machine like it should.

Any ideas??

Ta

not tried file hippo since it only checks for apps that their site hosts.

try SUMo or Update Notifier instead, both work great.

I just use these updaters solely to see if there are program or driver updates. I dont let them install them for me as I prefer to do that part myself.
