Software Update: Patch My PC

Version of Patch My PC has been released. This program can check whether the latest versions of a large number of programs – including Mozilla Firefox, Java, iTunes, Skype and Adobe Flash – are installed. In addition, it can see which Windows Updates are still missing from the system and which programs are starting with Windows, and can remove programs. This makes Patch My PC comparable to programs such as Personal Software Inspector from Secunia and SUMo from KC Softwares.

The program itself is only half a megabyte in size and does not need to be installed to do its job. The user can indicate which updates should be installed or skipped and then everything is retrieved and installed with one mouse click. The language of the installation can also be specified. Since version, support for several new programs has been added.

  • Fixed a sizing issue on machines with low resolutions

What’s new in

  • Fixed a bug that may cause some applications to be detected incorrectly if the first number of the version is larger or smaller than the second
    • For example: version 10 would be seen as less than version 9 since 9 is larger than 1
  • Removed the startup feature due to Windows 8.1 compatibility issues and since there are tools built into the OS for startup functions
  • Fixed an issue with some applications being listed more than once in the update status tab
  • Update status will now list applications alphabetically
  • Disabled Microsoft Security Essentials checkbox if running on Windows 8 or higher
  • Fixed a bug that caused some applications to not be listed when clicking Re-Check software after performing any updates
  • Added a website tab for easy access to our website
