I ran across the following download at CNET's download.com:
http://download.com.com/3000-2094-8581683.html

It's called CNET Catch-Up. The purpose is to notify you when there are updates to software installed on your machine. It also catches ad-ware and shows security updates available.

In my brief glance at the security offerings, I can't say that it was necessarily complete. But I'm no security expert.

The free download has a 95% approval rating which is very high. Also, many people have dowloaded the file. Once you download and install, you have to go to the following URL to use it:
http://catchup.cnet.com/

One good thing is that you will likely discover programs installed on your machine that you completely forgot about. This happens because the system updates you of upgrades that are available. You can often then go into Control Panel -> Add/Remove Programs then remove the programs you don't want.

But dont' go ahead with every upgrade blindly. If something is working fine for you and upgrading offers little advantage, stick with what you've got.

Cheers,
