One of the recommended but often neglected measures of ensuring the security of a computer is to update old software. Using updated software removes security gaps, helps to fix software bugs and enables users to get the latest features. Many people do not update their software simply because they do not know how to do it or due to the involving process of handling each program individually. However, you can easily use Kaspersky Software Updater to scan and update all installed programs at once.

Using Kaspersky Software Updater

Kaspersky Software Updater featured an interactive graphical user interface with a single button on the main window for searching for updates. When we clicked the button, the software started updating application databases before searching for updates. It displayed the number of updates found below the progress bar and immediately displayed a list of the updates found upon completion. It listed the applications, giving their versions and sizes.

We could choose to update all applications or select the ones that we wanted to exclude. Once the software had completed to update old software, it displayed a pop-up message above the Taskbar showing us whether the update was successful or not, with the option of getting more information about the process.

When we closed Kaspersky Software Updater and launched it later, it showed us when we performed the last search for updates. We could get information about the last update or perform a new search.

The "Settings" button on the lower left corner of the program window enabled us to make a few configurations. We could change the update search mode from full to quick search, which searched for only important updates. We could also set the update search schedule, whether we wanted the program to search for updates every day, on weekdays, on weekends, once a week, once a month or manually. The other details that we could change depended on the selected option. We could also configure proxy server settings if we connected to the internet via proxy.

Conclusion

Hackers usually exploit security loopholes in various applications. A simple way of protecting oneself against them is to update old software. Kaspersky Software Updater is a handy program that helps users to quickly and easily scan for and install software updates. You only need to click one button to search for updates and another to apply the found updates.
