Software update: Patch My PC




Version of Patch My PC has been released. This program can check whether the latest versions of a large number of programs – including Mozilla Firefox, Java, iTunes, Skype and Adobe Flash – have been installed. In addition, it can see which Windows Updates are still missing on the system and which programs with Windows, and can remove the programs. This makes Patch My PC comparable with SUMo from KC Softwares.

The program itself is less than two megabytes and does not need to be installed to do its job. The user can indicate which updates should be installed or skipped, and then everything is retrieved and installed with one mouse click. The language of the installation can also be specified. In version 4.0 the interface has been refreshed and it is now easier to jump to subcategories. There is also a context menu per application and a lot of new applications have been added to the list of supported programs. In this edition the following improvements have been made:

Fixed a conflict between “Dropbox” & “Google Backup & Sync”
Fixed PeaZip add-ons / plugins that were detected by PMPC.
Fixed “ProtonVPNTap” that was detected instead of “ProtonVPN”.
Fixed “Razer Cortex” local file misnamed with “Origin”.
Fixed x64 detection or Avidemux, Process Lasso, qBittorrent & Wireshark.
Fixed the broken “Disable silent install” for some individual apps.
Other Minor fixes.
Removed “Restart & Shutdown” options.
Added support for the new Thunderbird 64-Bit
Improved 7-Zip switches, no longer close explorer.exe after updating.
Replaced “Unlocker” exe installer with msi installer due problems / malware in the exe.
Disabled GIMP & HandBrake on x86 machines since they are no longer supported there.
Re-enbaled “Skype 8” on Windows 10 since it’s compatible now.
Updated new icons for a few apps.
Removed Yahoo Messenger
