How to update software with
THOR FREE?

THOR FREE comes with a Software Manager that can monitor and auto-update your vulnerable software to the latest software version, so you don't have to do it manually.

All you have to do is to check which applications do you want to monitor and auto-update. THOR FREE checks for software updates every 2h and applies them the moment they're available.

The update process is automatic and silent, which means you'll never be interrupted from your work or fun. This works even on limited user accounts and you can check the applied updates in the “View History” anytime you want.
