CCAuto Updater is a free portable tool that can automatically update CCleaner, Recuva, Defraggler and Speccy.

The program runs in the background, and carries out its updates silently, so you'll no longer have to visit the Piriform site to download any new builds. Instead you'll just see a pop-up alert when the process is complete, telling you about the new version.

The individual Piriform programs can check for updates themselves, of course, but managing them from one place can be a little tidier. And in addition, you're able to set CCAuto Updater to run when Windows starts, or schedule it to launch at the date and time of your choice, so that you catch the latest versions just as soon as they're available.

What the program can't do is install CCleaner, Recuva, Defraggler or Speccy in the first place, unfortunately: it only handles updates, so you'll need to set the applications up manually yourself, first.

Verdict

An easy way to keep your favourite Piriform tools up-to-date
