    Pros: Good program, keeps one aware of what needs to be updated.
    Cons: If you prefer to have more control over how updating is done, don't use version 3, stay with version 2.0.0.4003

    Good all around security for keeping aware of what needs updated. The folks at Secunia do a great job at staying on top of updates for software.
    If you like to have more information about updates and how you install them and where they are on your system, use the older version. I didn't like the new interface in the "Updated" version as it did not allow the level of control and provide the information about the updates and locations on your system.
    The old version uses the same database as the new so no missed updates or omissions. Just a diffrent interface. Hope this helps.
    Really like the product!
