Windows: If you’re looking for a way to supplement Window’s Updates system scan with one that covers peripheral programs, FileRex scans over 10,000 applications and checks them for updates.

Run FileRex, wait about 20 seconds, and you’ll be greeted with a list of applications with available updates. If you wish to update them, click the Download link in the FileRex entry for that application. FileRex is a free, portable, Windows only application.
