Windows 7: Little free program that works well for me.

I have been using Filehippo Update Checker.
FileHippo.com Update Checker - FileHippo.com
So far I like everything about it. Quick and easy and has been correct every time so far.

I've had it installed for years, no problem. Be aware, it will (maybe obviously) only alert to updates for programs that FileHippo lists. I also use SUMO, which is more comprehensive, just be sure to choose the installer without Relevant Knowledge, and pay attention to uncheck all the "extras" the installer wants to install. I find it worth it to have the program.

Choose the download link with the RK in the circle with a slash through it.

Mozilla really needs to stop updating Firefox so quickly.

I once used one of those update checkers (don't remember the name). Every time some program's language pack was updated, I got an alert. It was kind of a pain. I got rid of it.
