Exclamation Secunia Software Inspector

This is a very well known and respected Security Outfit and partners with Brian Livingston's Windows Secrets & Langalist.
I have them send me a email everytime a program is updated and patched so I know about it.
This quick online scan tells you if you have any unsecure software on your computer like Flash, Java, etc...

Software Inspector - Secunia

Secunia Software Inspector

Feature Overview - The Secunia Software Inspector:
* Detects insecure versions of applications installed
* Verifies that all Microsoft patches are applied
* Assists you in updating your system and applications
* Runs through your browser. No installation or download is required.

Start

Free Upgrade! More than 340,000 users have already upgraded
to the Secunia PSI, the advanced Software Inspector.


How Does it Work:
The Secunia Software Inspector relies on carefully crafted Secunia File Signatures to recognise applications on your system. The detected applications are then matched against our Secunia Advisory Intelligence to determine whether an application is up-to-date or not. The results are then used to advise you on how to update to more secure releases of the insecure applications.

Microsoft Windows Update is used to determine if your system is missing security updates from Microsoft.

The Secunia Software Inspector covers the most common/popular end user applications:
* Internet browsers
* Internet browser plugins
* Instant messaging clients
* Email clients
* Media players
* Operating systems
* View detailed list of applications

Please note.
The Secunia Software Inspector does not cover or include information about vulnerabilities not addressed by either a new version or a security patch. For information about unpatched issues in your software, we suggest that you look at our Product Vulnerability Report Pages.

The Secunia Software Inspector works by inspecting version information on your system and therefore it does not take into account if you e.g. applied a workaround to address a vulnerability.

Minimum Requirements:
* Windows 2000 SP4, Windows XP SP2, Windows 2003, or Windows Vista
* Sun Java JRE 1.5.0_12 or later
* Internet Explorer 6.x/7.x, Opera 9.x, or Firefox 2.x
* Latest version of Microsoft Windows Update
