Keeping Windows programs up to date

Interesting article here about keeping Windows programs up to date, but are they any good and more importantly, are free downloads from sites such as this worth the bother.... or the risk?

I think the idea with this is that it updates not so much Windows itself which as you say update automatically, but other programs we may have downloaded?

Re: Keeping Windows programs up to date

@Minivanman  I think @rongtw was referring to his "other" software.... not windows.

 

some antivirus progs also do the scan to check for updates and inform the user... unfortunately Windows defender does not seem to do this.
