IObit Software: Unless you download software and applications from the official Microsoft store, most Windows software will not be updated automatically. Modern web browsers such as Firefox, inform you of a new security update quickly so your system will be safe and it will be the same for Windows itself.
However, most other programs may never receive updates unless you check them for yourself on the publisher’s site. A task that can be long and tedious.
Keep software updated on Windows with IObit Software Updater
IObit Software Updater is a free software that will scan your system, check all your installed software and compare it to an online database to warn you if an update is available.
So much for the good news. On the negative side, it should be noted that the database is not yet very rich concerning the essential software updates. Plus, one of the recommended updates concerned Google Chrome, a browser that automatically updates itself.
IObit Software Updater also offers a number of recommended tools to download, the ransom of a free software somehow.
The update of each software will create a system restore point in case you encounter a problem during an update of one of your programs. You can also schedule automatic updates and even add programs that IObit should ignore.
The IObit software is free to download from the publisher’s website, the program is compatible with Windows 10 / Windows 8 / Windows 7 / Vista and Windows XP.
