R-TT presents its new free tool, R-Updater, for keeping your software up-to-date. It is a convenient and safe way to get software updates in time. Unlike most software updaters constantly running in the background and consuming computer resources or check for updates only when the programs start, R-Updater starts once upon Windows startup when all its processes have already started, runs seamlessly in the background, receives notifications about new releases, updates, or beta versions of the programs installed on your computer, and then unloads itself from the computers memory if no updates are found. All this makes the process of receiving update notifications completely transparent to the user.
R-Updater can be fine-tuned to meet all your requirements to such updater software. Moreover, there is a portable version of R-Updater that doesn’t require any installation and can be run from a USB flash drive, a great solution for a support technician.
And last, but not the least. Keeping your software up-to-date is an additional measure against viruses, security loopholes and other malicious attacks on your computer or network, as software vendors are constantly removes vulnerabilities in their software.
