Hi clivehallett:

Yes, I agree catchup was a great program and I also miss it. I found another program called Bigfix which is almost as good as Catchup. Bigfix will scan your system and recommend which updates you may need and will provide you with an update link if you choose to install the update.

Here's the link if you are interested in using the Bigfix freeware program.

'Bigfix' seems to be the answer, already A Loophool in windows has been fixed, and which was not displayed in the 'Windows update' page. Thanks again. regards clive..

I'm glad BigFix is working out for you. If you hadn't already, I recommend to uncheck BigFix from your Startup List located in your System Configuration Utility as it does seem to use alot of System Resources and isn't necessary to have the program running full time. I'll run it manually about twice a week just to check and see if any updates are available.

Good Luck,
