    Used to be a program/service called CatchUp, which scanned the system and listed
    what updates were software and driver updates were available. Is there anything
    like that out there nowadays to make it easier updating? Thanks.

    BigFix might be what your looking for.
    http://www.tucows.com/preview/208920 (not sure if this is really the
    file) or if you have to subscribe. (google it)

    BigFix was installed on my gateway system, to do just what your
    asking.

    There will be no more updates for BigFix Free Consumer Edition from the end
    of this month.

    I never knew. I like to maintain a semblance of control over my OS :)

    One way is to know what is being installed or updated, I disabled
    BigFix the first day.

    Free Consumer Edition is being discontinued. My Bigfix was installed
    by Gateway and I'm pretty sure they had a contract with them so BigFix
    should still work on those machines.

    It was a try.
