Only one of this type updater that really works! The silent install threw me for a moment. Now if they would add AVG Free, Klite codec packs, and a few others.

Wow. Only 312KB on my disk. The app is now smaller and better since my last review. The author of this app is onto something great and will catch on with the public in due time just like Ccleaner has.
Reviewing 2.0.0 Beta 1 (Sep 6, 2011)
yes but Ninite really works
this program is OK and stalled on me a few times
this program also deleted all my google chrome extensions
and made me waste 1 hour fixing google chrome

@CyberDoc: While I agree that ninite has it's place, this utility is actually easier because you don't have to update your USB stick every other day... this program downloads and installs the most important things all by itself.
Now for the review:
This program does exactly what it says.
I fully appreciate the new ability to remove specific programs from being downloaded and installed (i.e. Firefox) - not all the programs that were being downloaded and installed automatically were needed.
This program is a GODSEND to the computer repair industry. Previous to this, I had to use Ninite or Ketarin to keep the main programs updated that I needed every day. This program literally saves me 15 minutes on EVERY computer I work on... that works out to 300 minutes per day on average that I don't have to spend physically clicking buttons to install programs that are needed on new builds - like Flash, Reader, Java, etc.

Only 476 KB on my disk is hardly bloated. I was surprised to see that my Firefox browser and iTunes were out of date. It even downloads and updates these apps for you. It's portable and best of all it's FREE!
Needs to support a lot more programs to be useful.
