    Hello,

    I'm wondering what software you like to update on a daily basis. That means manually opening the program and clicking the update feature. Mine are:

    Ad Muncher
    CCEnhancer
    CCleaner
    Microsoft Security Essentials
    Norton Security Suite
    Spybot - Search & Destroy
    SpywareBlaster
    Windows Update
    WinPatrol
    Fix-It Utilities Professional
    System Mechanic Professional

    Regards,

    Nathan

    Never used to check for updates from a program or using a built-in updater. I prefer to check the developer website or to visit daily SnapFiles, MajorGeeks or FileHippo.

    I think you need a 'none' option there Nathan...

    Hello,

    That didn't even occur to me at the time. And vBulletin won't let me go back and edit the poll. But people who are interested can do what you did, and reply none, other, etc.

    Regards,

    Nathan

    The "None" option has been added. (Normally we don't edit polls if they have been open for too long, or too many people have voted already. However, since only NRProia himself had voted by this point in time, I was able to add the extra option without corrupting the poll. Tested it by voting for None myself.)

    Hello,

    Thanks. Future polls will have "Other" and "None" as options.

    Regards,

    Good to have that option added...

    I manually check on Sandboxie's release progress from time to time, but that's all.

    Cheers

    None. I'd probably go crazy if my setup needed constant, daily updating.

    All of my security programs are updated daily with the exception of Spyware Blaster.

    Nice to have the Pro versions.:)

    The only software that ever got updated daily was my AV, but now I'm without that.

    First thing I do when I start my computers is a manual update of the AVs whether they are real time or scanner type (even though they are all scheduled to update automatically).

    Security programs and CCEnhancer. Former does it automatically, nothing for me to do. Latter takes 2 clicks and a few seconds. I use CCleaner that regularly, because of my browser ramdisk.
