There really is one godsend to computer technicians and home users alike.

Ninite.

Select what applications you want on THEIR WEBSITE and download the customized app. If your computer has the application, it will make sure it is up-to-date and if it is not found, the application will be installed. No bloatware, no toolbars, just the application.

Simple.

I HIGHLY recommend this tool to EVERYONE. I don't sing the praises of many applications, but this is so simply beautiful that I must pass it to all who don't know about its existence. The real beauty of this system comes in the form of the Ninite Pro system which allows control of multiple computers keeping everything up-to-date, an administrator's dream.

The automatic updater can be purchased for $9.99, I've never personally used it but I can't imagine why it wouldn't work as described.
