    You could go to it, and it would scan your system and tell you what components were missing or not up to date. It's been some time, but I think they also had some other 'pay' anti-virus.

    I'm thinking the company started with an 'I', but searching isn't helping me any today.

    Anyone? If you have a great utility or website that does the above, please feel free to mention it too.

    thanks

    No idea about the one you're trying to recall. But an alternative: Secunia. They have a web service (requires Java plugin) and installable software.

    Another software with this type of functionality (vulnerability scanner) is Rising PC Doctor. It mainly finds windows updates and hotfixes for you that Windows Update doesn't download automatically.

    I should warn people that it has received a terrible rating of 2/5 on majorgeeks.com, although I'm not sure why as I never had any trouble with it. The only reason I stopped using it was that I wasn't sure I needed those vulnerability fixes and it never found any trojans or spyware so I decided my regular AV suite was enough.
