    • Patch My PC

      Patch My PC already has KeePass.

  7. Tom Smith

    Please consider DUMo from KC Softwares (you already have SUMo). It does not self-update.


  8. A.K.

    I think Nirlauncher is a great choice it has 300 utilities . it is lightweight and free

    There should be an option to monitor all the apps installed in system like SUMo ( so that user can install some of the updates manually for the apps which are not supported.
