Hello CNET TechTracker Users!
We're excited to introduce you to the latest version of our software update service, now called the Download App. This is the newest evolution of the CNET service previously known as TechTracker.
The Download App is a free application from Download.com that helps keep the software on your Windows computer up-to-date, as well as clean up the junk that accumulates in your system over time. The Download App scans your computer and notifies you when updates are available for the software you have installed, just like TechTracker.
As you know, software updates contain new features and patches that make your computer more secure. You can also use the Download App to remove unwanted software from your computer using the Uninstall feature.
Using the software catalog that powers Download.com, the Download App provides secure, spyware-free software updates, and makes it easy to keep track of all your software updates in one place. With the new Utilities features, you can scan your computer for junk files that might be slowing your computer down and get rid of them with a few clicks.
We've been working hard on this new version, and we've got plans for new features and improvements in 2014 that you won't want to miss.
Get the FREE Download App today!
CNET TechTracker is being shut down in favor of this new application with improved software matching and additional system maintenance features. Existing TechTracker users will need to update to the Download App to continue to receive software update information from Download.com.
