SUMo - software update manager

Posted by ClifNotes, Mar 2009, permalink System Maintenance


Tiffany sent me this in email. She's tried it and the last time we chatted, she mentioned how much she likes it.


Hi Clif,
I think this is something you will like. My weekly newsletter from Information Avenue *Premium Edition arrived this morning, and their "Freeware Pick of the Week" looks like a real winner.  With just one click, SUMo will scan your entire computer, then list all the software you have installed on it, along with any major and minor updates available.  SUMo also tells you which ones are already up-to-date.  Any programs needing updating are quickly and easily brought up-to-par by right-clicking and selecting "Get Update".  What could be easier?  SUMo is a great program for all Windows users!

Quote from the website

SUMo, which stands for Software Update Monitor. Thanks to SUMo you'll be able to keep your PC up-to-date by using the most recent version of your favorite software ! Unlike build-in auto update features, SUMo tells you if updates are available before you need to use your software.



  • Automatic detection of installed software
  • Detects required updates / patchs for your software
  • Filter / authorize Beta versions (user setting)
  • Ignore list : only tracks software YOU want to track
  • More compatibility and less false positive than others Update Monitors (according to users feedback ;-)
  • Internationalization support.
