    It's great that eset now detects that you need windows updates, however, for this to be really useful it would be good if they could do this for all software, as it's not just OS software that is exploited by malware these days, and it's the issue of trying to keep all your software uptodate free of exploits that is the real issue imo.

    Especially web browsers, codecs, browser plugins etc.

    Could you please consider this functionality please.

    I know if you look at http://www.securityfocus.com or nvd.nist.gov/ for example you would probably never use a computer, but in reality half of my software probably isn't up to date other than the OS - and I have no idea which software has the biggest potential vunerabilities that could be exploited by malware (best to stop at source than to try and catch the malware isn't it? - and the malware adapts to exploit the same flaw in some cases surely)

    Brilliant, perfect thanks. This is the kind of thing I think eset should include in sysinspector or smart security!
