Software updaters do not update drivers, they only update the programs installed on your computer. For that, you need driver update software.

Despite your experience with Driver Booster, it is one of the best driver updaters. Driver Easy is very good too, if you buy the Pro version, as the free version is really limited. However, unless you having problems with some devices, or are missing some needed drivers, there's often not much need to keep drivers updated.

Comparing the free of both latest UCheck 3.9.0.0 and SUMO v5.10.14.452

Failed to detect my installed/portable programs.

UCheck

1) O&O Shut Up 10
2) SterJo NetStalker
3) EEK
4) AdwCleaner
5) Revo Uninstaller Pro
6) Everything
7) RegScanner
8) Eusing Free Registry Cleaner
9) Wise Registry Cleaner
10) CCleaner64
11) Wise Disk Cleaner

13) SUMo
14) SumatraPDF
15) HWiNFO64

That's the big + of SUMO you can add the directory of your portable programs and it checks them for you.

I'll keep SUMo because it can detect more. As for those MS and Intel updates I'll let Windows and MS handle that.

Too bad if UCheck can also detect portable programs then that'll make it a perfect software updater for it can detect both MS and Intel updates. There's a catch here though. Certain installed programs can only be detected if you use the paid version of UCheck

SUMo has turned off the feature to scan Microsoft products by default. You can turn it on in the settings section.

By the way UCheck is getting better too.

And this is scheduled for UCheck too :)
Unfortunately yes we don't detect portable version very well, however most of the software listed above should be detected in their installed version.
Thanks, the future of UCheck looks really good

I'm sorry but no, licensing doesn't have to do with software, it's only about features.
If they are not detected, it's for both free and premium (do you have any examples?)
Just tried testing UCheck again

1) Chromium version. I'm using Ungoogled Chromium (for Win 64-bit as in below link) and its version is 80.0.3987.149-2. It's reported correctly by UCheck but it shouldn't suggest an pending update available as it's not been released by Ungoogled Chromium yet. Likely it's applicable to Chromium browser users but forks of Chromium might not be applicable
