FileHippo.com Update Checker v1.37 – Main screen

FileHippo.com Update Checkeris an app that scans computers for installed software and alerts the user if there are any updates available.

What makes FileHippo.com Update Checker singular amongst other update checking software applications (that I have tried yet) is that not even once I saw a false alert in its reports. Until now, I have tried quite a handful of update checking applications, including Software Informer, CNET TechTrack and a couple of others without satisfaction: They displayed dozens of false alerts.

FileHippo.com Update Checker is not a perfect solution, but it is an outstanding solution. Its update database is meager. Below is a sample report of FileHippo.com Update Checker, when my software were all up to date.
