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

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.

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.

Old win XP program only works in Safe Mode on Win 7
An old windows program only runs in safe mode in Win 7, but worked fine in XP. The start up exe file looks for a set of files in a sub-directory, but it seems as if something in Win 7 is directing it to another directory. There is no ini file as far as I can see, and it works just fine in Win 7...
