Tips and Tactics
It is easy to lose track of which versions of which applications are running on your computer, and it’s difficult to correct the situation once it gets out of hand. Not keeping software up-to-date can bog down performance and even create security holes, since updates often contain critical security patches or new features that improve your overall experience with the application.
CNET TechTracker is a free tool that helps you get a handle on what’s installed on your computer. By taking inventory of what software is installed, TechTracker lets you know if anything is outdated, and provides a secure, spyware-free download for all relevant updates. From one central location, you can easily bring your computer into a current and streamlined state, and you can customize TechTracker to regularly re-scan your system or alert you when new updates are available, to ensure your computer stays in an optimized state.

You can also customize the scan by skipping or hiding applications you are not interested in tracking, making it easier focus on those that are more important.
