I have been using Update Detector by File Puma to scan my Windows computer for software like Steam, Glary Utilities, and other popular free software to see if there are updates for it. It is usually best to use the latest version of Windows software since the updated version sometimes fixes software problems which older versions of the software does not fix.
Update Detector and File Puma is owned by Glarysoft.com the makers of Glary Utilities and other system utility software, so using Update Detector and File Puma is safer than downloading installer files for programs from un-safe websites which may contain virus, malware, and spyware programs which may harm your computer.
Once I installed Update Detector, I just need to double click on the Update Detector shortcut icon on my desktop or startmenu to launch the program. Update detector will launch the program, and scan my computer for outdated software.
After the scan is done, It will automatically open my default browser like Chrome, Firefox, or Internet Explorer, and go to FilePuma.com to inform me which programs need to be updated to the latest version, and the webpage links me to the download page for each individual program which needs to be updated by downloading the installer file to use to install the latest version of the software. The download speeds on FilePuma.com are fast, and FilePuma does not bundle unwanted program installers, or require a seperate downloader like some freeware download websites which need you to use their downloader, or tricks you into installing unwanted toolbars, and programs during the software install.
There is also a lot of free software like media players, web browsers, and more for Windows which you can download from File Puma.
If you want to learn how to use more software, there is a News Blog on FilePuma which posts articles on how to use Windows software, and news related to Windows software.
