    Just seat back and relax while your pre-selected programs are installed in backgroud... :cool:

    Just out of interest, can I ask how this s/w deals with the ubiquitous toolbar / make default checkboxes embedded in installers that we have to untick time and time again...?

    EDIT: Sorry, I was thinking of 'first time' installers - maybe these toolbar boxes don't appear when s/w is automatically updated. I don't know, as I have nothing that auto-updates.

    Tried this today, and no toolbars bundled with the apps -all 'first time' installers- (java, flash, and all the others i tried) :thumb:

    Taken from the webpage:

    Looks like a really nice program. Of little use for me as I only use a few of the program it installs and updates, but I'm sure many people will find this useful.

    At the bottom of the webpage you can submit apps you would like to see included, and you can even get them to email you if and when they include the app:

    Very nice product will definatly make use of it when I install windows 8 later in the year. I always hate having to babysit my computer after a reinstall for each app.

    NiNite has been around a long time now. It makes finding software quite a bit easier.

    To update software, I used to rely mostly on Secunia PSI. However, since the newer version was released I've often found it not telling me about security updates even for risky software like Java.
