Software updating

Install one of these free software updaters and it will first automatically identify all of your software and then determine if an update is available.

Then, depending on the updater, with either point you to the newer download on the developer's site or maybe even do the downloading and updating for you!

Avast makes updating software a breeze and helps you avoid installing any unwanted software.

Outdated software lacks the most current security measures and patches, leaving you vulnerable to hackers who know how to exploit these weak spots. If you’re already one of them, but aren’t using Premier, just go to Scan › Scan for outdated software and click the button to run the test.

However, that notification is not there just to pester us.

However, a software updater makes the process really easy.

The fact that all of these excellent ones are completely free is even better.

A software vulnerability is usually a security hole or weakness found in an operating system or software program.

Hackers exploit this weakness by writing code to target a specific vulnerability, which is packaged into malware.

Note: By no means do you have to use a software updater to update your outdated software.

One thought on “software updating”

  1. Incremental updates to Internet Explorer, like those you might see on Patch Tuesday that correct small bugs or fix security issues, are always best received via Windows Update. If you're still using Windows 8, IE10 is the latest version of IE you can use.
