OUTDATEfighter v1.1.97

A Full Review of OUTDATEfighter, a Free Software Updater

OUTDATEfighter is a fantastic free software updater. The program finds any outdated applications on your computer and then downloads the updates for you. 

On top of that, OUTDATEfighter even support bulk installs, which means you can click through the installation wizards for all the programs that need updated, without having to manually open each setup file individually.

This review is of OUTDATEfighter version 1.1.97, which was released on February 2, 2018. Please let me know if there's a newer version I need to review.

OUTDATEfighter Pros & Cons

There are several things to like about OUTDATEfighter:


  • Easy to use
  • Bulk downloads
  • Bulk installs
  • Can ignore updates
  • Includes other useful tools


  • Aren't any scheduling options to check for outdated programs automatically
  • Didn't find as many outdated programs as similar software updater tools

My Thoughts on OUTDATEfighter

When compared to similar software updater tools, OUTDATEfighter excels not only because it downloads programs without using a web browser but because it automatically opens each download to begin installation so you don't have to manually open them yourself.

The only thing I don't like about OUTDATEfighter is that there aren't any scheduling settings. This means you can't set the program up to scan your computer every day, or week, etc., for outdated programs. Instead, you must open OUTDATEfighter each time you wish to make a scan.
