What's the name of the software? I've heard of a software that diagnoses your computer problems for free, but once you run it on your system it will want to charge you for the solutions.

I tried this one. It works fine, has no spyware or anything, but is really not all that useful. It doesn't find very many updates and notifies you of Windows updates that you can find out about by just setting your Automatic Updates to notify you before downloading and before installing.

In other words, it really doesn't make things any easier since you will still need to check for all the updates it doesn't find.

The best tool for finding updates for everything is Update Expert, but it's not free:

A good site for finding updates and patches is:
