Has live update. Basically it will access the ASUS site and look for updates to the PC. This could include device drivers for audio, video, drives, etc.

Try it and see what happens.

Hi dear friend,
Thank you. But for what software does it look for updates? Does it look for updates for all the software installed on my machine? Something like what "FileHippo Update Checker" does? Or, it looks for updates for some specific software only, say, for the utilites bundled in "ASUS Utility" folder?

As I said above, try it.

My IBM updates has two options. Machine specific and software specific.
