Windows 7: Check for New Versions

Windows Vista Ultimate
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.
