Anybody know of a CNET Catchup Alternative?

  1. A year ago I used CNET Catchup a lot, it was a great tool, would scan your computer for all the .exe's, and .dll's, etc..

    It would then list them on the website, and then you had the option to continue and check for updates, it would then show you your current version, and the new version that was available for download (if a new version was available), then a few months later, CNET Catchup shut down, and I have been searching for a program that has these capabilities ever since.

    Anybody know an alternative? Thanks in advance

    There used to be Cybermedia's Oil Change (taken over by Network Associates/McAfee) but I don't think it is still available.

    Also, Norton used to have a Web updater program, can't remember the name.

    On Cnet you can still subscribe (free) to a weekly newsletter which sends you a list of available updates.

    Don't know of any other prograns at the moment but this should get you started.

    PS: just found this (older) piece of info:
