    Very fast and simple to use . Only one problem. It usually advises on up-dates that don't exsist and will recommend to up-date software that is at it's most recent version. I usually depend on the included up-date feature that's included inthe sofware it self so no need for this tool.

    Finds sometimes and that's already too often, updates which do not exist : neither on the software's homepage, neither anywhere on the searchable surface web. Where do they get the information of those updates availability is beyond my imagination.
    I've removed it. Main software update is provided with sites like here.

    Most computer users will eventually need a program to manage updates and the Lite version of SUMo is a simple and effective way to check the status of all the applications you have installed.

    still reports updates for lot's of programs, even if there is no final update, just some 'beta' or 'not official updates'.
    Check for Betafiles has been disabled in the config.

    This thing contains spyware (I don't care about the light version,... betanews shouldn't post spyware here)
