download links to more recent versions. It has been reported that if you use the automatic updater and you are not CAREFUL you will install a virus that most anti-virus software won't detect and your computer could be ruined! Besides that, the checker detects only a limited number of programs. Also, there have been unconfirmed reports of UDC presenting problems to those users that have a non-English version of Windows installed. Best NOT to instal the automatic updater!!
