Is your computer's performance starting to drag? Are your favorite applications suddenly acting up on you? You may not know that your optimal user experience doesn't end once you install the software -- you need to continually check for updates that squash bugs, improve performance, and ensure continued compatibility with your hardware! But, really, who has time to check for software updates for every app that's installed on your system? Not me. Not you. Thankfully, there's UpdateStar Premium!

UpdateStar Premium does all of the dirty work, going out and finding important software updates for more than 1,273,000 programs! Chances are, what's on your hard drive is a subset of those 1,273,000 programs. Every minor update, every major update, and every tweak for every single program on your computer will be fetched for you, saving you valuable time and legwork. UpdateStar Premium works for freeware, shareware, application demos, and commercial software, so there's no program that will escape the scrutinizing eye of UpdateStar Premium! If you have many, many programs, you can even specify which programs UpdateStar Premium should check, and which should be ignored.

You don't even need to remember to run UpdateStar Premium! The app runs quietly in the background, only letting you know of its presence when it detects an update for one of your programs, which you can download and install at your convenience. With links and downloads verified by the UpdateStar Premium team, you never need to worry about downloading incorrect software patches or fake files packed with malware.

UpdateStar Premium also features some nifty bonuses! Create software snapshots for backup and migration purposes. View security levels for installed programs. Clean your Windows registry to keep your system operating at top condition!

After you purchase UpdateStar Premium Edition, it may be used for 12 months.

Peter Gabriel I like the idea, but having used the trial version, I think it lacks accuracy with some of the supposed updates. For example, I have a freeware weather program called Cumulus, Update Star informed me there was a newer version so I thought OK I'll download it. Luckily I read the description of Cumulus as described by Update Star, otherwise I would have downloaded a warehouse management program! Also, some of the version information is inaccurate. I also found the constant redirecting to their website irritating. It's a good idea, but it needs a bit more work before I'd think about buying it.

Jason Howard "The UpdateStar database is maintained by the users, for the users. Thousands of voluntary users help us to complete and keep our database with more than 1,273,000 software products up to date"

And pay for the privilege? There are many free products that work under the same principle and they do a great job. What exactly does an $80 list price provide that the free "user maintained" versions cannot.

Unless "UpdateStar Premium Edition" provides some significant improvement over how all the the free competition operates, it is hard to justify considering this seriously.

Finally - considering that the "purchase" is little more than a 12 month rental - is only a further slap in the face.

PG BNax Jason & Peter, thanks for taking the time to share your comments. For others considering this app, I found the 1-year license business on the homesite's shopping cart page (copy/paste): - - - - UpdateStar Premium Edition javascript:stay(); 1 year license, no cancelation period This is a yearly subscription product. After 12 month(s), a yearly fee of $19.95 is due starting with the next billing cycle. - - - - This fact is of obvious importance to potential buyers. The dev chose to ignore it, as well as the preceding comments. Tells me a lot. Moving on ...

WakeUp Neo What does this program offer that is not freely available from CNet, FileHippo and others?

Warren Russell This is a 3-PC license. The price for a single PC is...$29.95. As I only need the application for one PC, this offer will not save me any money.
