Keeping your system secure is not one step process – you have to build a multi-layer defense using many different approaches. One of these ways to boost the system security is to regularly update the third-party software installed on your PC, not to mention keeping the operating system updated and fully patched. While Microsoft offers Automatic Updates for Windows and Office products, you have to manually update some of the other third party software. If you do not want to go through the hassle of checking all the installed software for any updates every once in a while, then you can use Avira Software Updater. This new utility from Avira can scan through all the installed applications in your Windows PC and suggests you to download an update to to any of the outdated programs it finds.
After the installation, you can access it through the Avira Launcher icon that stays in the notification area of the Windows taskbar. As soon as launched, the Avira Software Updater performs a quick scan of all the installed programs and supported applications and then shows you the results. If it finds an application with an older version for which an update is available, then you are shown an alert to download and install that update.
Under the My Software category, you can see all the applications that Avira Software Updater has found on your PC. It does not monitor all of the applications for an update – only a few of the programs are monitored. This section also acts as the software manager – you can update or remove these applications from here just as would from the Windows Control Panel.
You can view all the actions performed by the Avira Software Updater from under the Events section. Basically, it lists evens like which software was updated to which version, which software was removed and so on. On the top, you can see how many programs are being updated for updates, how many actual updates have been performed and how many days have gone by since the installation of Avira Software Updater.
Conclusion: Avira Software Updater can quickly update some of the third-party applications in your PC which can improve the system stability, system security and the overall performance of your PC.
