I normally check for program updates for all my programs at FileHippo.com once a week.
I did not notice that the Update Checker itself had been updated.
I was three versions behind. :lol:
The creation date for this latest version is Oct. 22,2008. Update Checker v1.029

I like to have the little mouse eyes peek at me then disappear when it has checked that all installed applications are up to date.

Hmm, due to your post I just noticed the FUC is listed on the available updates page to the top right.

That's just it. I was so used to seeing the "Pink Flamingo" and just exiting.
Last night I got the "Pink Flamingo" and noticed that a new version of FileHipp, com Update Checker was available. I was not sure how long that notice was being offered but since the "Pink Flamingo" said
Congratulations!
Your computer is up-to-date!
I figured I was up to date. I guess the FileHippo people don't want a lot of problems being caused by people updating The Checker program in the middle of using it. Who knows.
Just thought I would give a heads up. I still am not sure how long the update was available. :lol:

@ DennisD You are welcome !

By the way, have any of you tried to Log In at the File Hippo site? It always says they'll be open to the public "later this year". Well, check your calender.
Then again CCleaner is always listed as the #1 download there. Makes me think...

Could be due to the fact that Filehippo is a part of Piriform Corona. ;)

It's been speculated for a long time now, but until MrG says it is it will remain speculation.

Don't PM me for advice! I'll only ask you to read forum rule #15.
