One of the most dreaded chores for most computer users is finding and installing updates for your software and operating system. There are programs out there to make this process easier, and many programs have built-in update checkers.
One of the top programs for updating your software is FileHippo, which works on PCs only. However, VersionTracker works on PCs, Macs iPhone and PalmOS.

No matter which program you use, it is important to look at the settings for your software first and see if it has the capability to check on its own for updates. You might have to manually check for an update or set the program to check for updates periodically, but at least you’ll be prepared to update your software quickly!

I’ve been working from home off and on since 1998. Over the years, I have found that with a few tweaks here and there, I can get a ton of work done in a little time – and I can enjoy the rest of the time, or spend time working at another job (or two, or three).
