A great software monitor program, stand-alone that is recommended?

I like the idea of the 'software updater' that Avast has, but was wondering if anyone knew of a standalone software monitor program at all that anyone here would recommend.

If you can select what programs to show or ignore when you check for updates, that would be a big plus!

Thanks in advance!

Does anyone have an idea, or a recommendation?

I used this a bit back, it did a fair job.

I removed it because I got a different computer and never re-installed it...

Ok, that's good to know ;)



Did a quick look at both, I don't really like Ninite, it's more of a 'new PC, install these programs' type of program.
I can't find info on if it scans what you have installed, and check for updates for the programs...or anything....but that was a quick glance, I'll look more into it.


If this 'secunia' program can have the option to put a copy of the downloaded/installed/updated programs in a separate location, that would be nice; )
