Check for New Versions

I am a person who loves to keep my software up to date. So I constantly check for new versions of my favorite programs. However, I would love a program out there that I can use to check in the background or otherwise for new versions of my favorite programs. Anyone have any ideas as to any freeware or trial programs I can use that doesn't take up that much memory but runs efficiently and effectively?

Please assist.

I tried a great program called "Update Notifier". It is free, and I have tried it with great success!

Problem with previous versions: "No previous versions available"
I (stupidly and accidentally) deleted all files in my "Downloads" folder. As in, hard deleted them - not to the recycle bin. I right-clicked the folder and picked "Properties", "Previous versions". Lo and behold, there were several previous versions. I opened the one from today, browsed through...
